Remember those in their first year of service. Initially there is the excitement of being in a new place and adjusting to the very different scene. Then after a few months there will be a sense of the uncertainty as they get used to the hard work of day by day studying language, living in a strange culture and often homesickness. Pray that they will keep focused on Jesus and live in His strength, wisdom, grace and love as they face the daily issues of living in a foreign culture. Pray that God will bless them.
