We asked you to pray alongside SOAR International as they conducted their summer ministries. Now that summer is ending, we wanted to fill you in on how God was working.

Today, we’re going to look at the transition home where three interns spent six weeks teaching English and communication classes. SOAR also taught Bible and life skills classes. goo.gl/8gBFtF

You’ve heard about the thousands of refugee kids growing up without an education. In Jordan alone, 91,000 displaced children didn’t go to school last year.

Now, thanks to a $100 million grant agreement, Jordan will provide schooling for 50,000 more refugee children this year. They’re copying a successful model used in Lebanon and adding a second school shift. It’s part of a long-term plan to uplift the refugee community. goo.gl/in74i7

Malaysia wasn’t originally in the 10/40 Window, which indicates the largest concentration of people who haven’t heard the Gospel. But when the 10/40 Window was revised, Malaysia was included.

After all, it’s nearby, and less than nine percent of Malaysians know Christ. You may know of Crossroad Bible Institutes’ prison ministry in the U.S., but did you know they’re in critical countries like Malaysia too?

Crossroad’s International Director Cynthia Williams was just in Malaysia visiting their ministry partners who share Jesus with the inmates, and help them transition back to society.

Sometimes, it’s easy to think that being a part of international ministry means knowing the language or having years of biblical training. But according to Rick Weston of Trans World Radio, there’s a lot more to missions than you’d expect, and you might be able to play a larger part than you thought.

There are few places that require new, creative ways to minister like Papau New Guinea. From the tough, volcanic terrain to the widespread people groups, Bruce Smith of Wycliffe Associates says it’s a tough country to reach. Yet the hardest challenge of all is the language barrier.

“About 500 of those 800 languages are still needing God’s word to start translation, so just a huge task ahead from the vantage point of Bible translation.”

What Wycliffe Associates is not lacking is passion from local believers. Wycliffe Associates is providing resources, guidance, and training for local language speakers so they can translate the scriptures for themselves.

The persecution of Christians in Sudan is systematic and more reminiscent of a policy of ethnic cleansing. Sudan has been designated a “Country of Particular Concern” by the U.S. State Department since 1999.

For decades chaos has ruled Sudan, with freedom of expression and religion silenced. Against this backdrop, the Voice of the Martyrs and other organizations are sharing growing concerns over a developing situation.

Voice of the Martyrs has been following the case closely and says the charges are false; there’s no evidence to back up the accusations by the Sudanese National Intelligence Security Services. goo.gl/ZaLzzG

Nearly 2-million kids are orphaned in Kenya. Kids Alive International works daily to provide stability and sanctuary through their children’s homes and schools.

But what happens when a child ages out of traditional orphan care? Ruth Henningham works with teens transitioning from Kids Alive homes into adult life.

“From the time when they graduate from high school, we encourage them to stay in the home and work alongside the staff... so we try to give them some very practical experiences.”

Henningham and the Kids Alive team equip teens to make biblically-based decisions about relationships, finances, and more. At the core of those decisions is healthy community.

Mohamed Hegazy grabbed the world's attention years ago when he requested to be legally identified as a Christian in Egypt. After years of beatings, torture, and imprisonment, he recently announced his return to Islam.

While extreme, Hegazy's story highlights the struggles Egyptian Christians face on a societal/political level. Emily Fuentes of Open Doors USA says,

"Open Doors works to help persecuted Christians however persecution's materializing. And so in different countries it materializes in different ways. Egypt for example, it’s really ingrained throughout society..."

And that's what Open Doors is all about, helping Christians stand strong.

Ukraine celebrates 25 years apart from the Soviet Union. grudges held in eastern Europe are still potent.
For Christians, the easiest thing to do right now is to hide. But these Ukranian Christians know that their situation doesn't change the task given to them. Will you pray with them?

Jo Ann Smit is a middle school teacher who felt called to go to Africa. So when she found out Set Free Ministries would be visiting the schools they support in Uganda, she decided to go along.

She says, "Once I found out that some of the schools that we would be visiting didn't even have any water in the schools, it really hit home to me."

The trip was months off, so Smit decided to start a fundraiser at her school through the Ugandan Water Project. Their goal was to raise $3,600 in three weeks for one water containment system for a school in Uganda.

And the results? Smit says, "It was beyond our wildest expectations."

In a world with so many problems, heartaches, and tragedies, it’s important to teach children that they can make a real difference. Thanks to Jo Ann Smit...

On Saturday, the extreme Islamic faction, Boko Haram, attacked another village close to Chibok and abducted 13 more women and children. Boko Haram also released footage of several of the Chibok schoolgirls still alive earlier last week.

Voice of the Martyrs’ Todd Nettleton says it reminds us that while the world’s eyes are trained on ISIS in the Middle East, Nigeria’s Boko Haram fighters are still at-large.

Christians in Northern Nigeria suffer persecution, but they haven’t given up their witness for Christ. Because of this, Nettleton also offers an unconventional prayer request.
