Daniel, AIA intern in Lebanon, has been asked to join the Lebanese national basketball team! (You'll see Daniel in the AIA Lebanon video in this email!) What an exciting platform to share the love of Jesus. Pray for the Bible study he has started on his team and for his increasing influence.
Jen was ok’d by the county to teach a free REFIT® fitness class at our local community center! Pray for women in the surrounding neighborhoods to come and to know their worth, as well as for additional opportunities to teach and reach out.
- Nicolas took on a garden plot at our HQ and has enjoyed working the land and sowing seeds. It's been life-giving in the midst of this season of transition.
AIA Global has recently been in the process of appointing new regional coordinators and global strategy leaders - with a dream of having leaders from each of the represented regions. (Interesting timing that the Lord would have us make this transition while the whole ministry is making global adjustments to their teams!) As a reminder, Nicolas will serve as the Regional Coordinator for Middle East, North Africa and Central Asia. Two weeks ago, the completed team was able to finally meet on Zoom for the first time (pictured). It’s exciting that God answered this prayer for a global group of leaders - there are 9 countries and 5 continents represented! Pray for ongoing connection for the team, learning of roles, and for the new team leader Bill as he guides and shepherds the team.
Nicolas was hospitalized this weekend with an ongoing episode of atrial fibrillation (Afib). Pray for healing and for wisdom for the doctors to know how to proceed with these genetic heart issues.
