International Day of Prayer May 19, 2014
“We welcome people to come and pray for the nations for 20 minutes or all morning,” said Marty Miller, Executive Director. The international headquarters office is located at 7929 SW Cirrus Dr. Unit #23, Beaverton, Ore..
“For more than 20 years, Samaritans have joined in deep prayer together on the first weekend in June,” said Miller. Many volunteers gather in Samaritan centers around the world to pray. Prayer rooms will be decorated with photos and notes of prayer requests for Samaritan leaders in places such as Egypt and Senegal where Christians are persecuted.
“Let’s pray to let go of judgment and division; and pray to release joy, hope and abundance,” said Jerry Tindall, a McMinnville resident and an international Samaritan leader with agricultural solutions for combating hunger and poverty in Africa.
Samaritans will be praying during all hours of GSM’s annual 24-hour International Day of Prayer and Fasting in more than 20 countries. In addition to prayers for children and families served by GSM. International Leaders will be praying for the needed funds to cover trip expenses for a long-awaited international conference in Africa. Samaritans hope to travel from Liberia, Ghana, Rwanda, Uganda and other countries to join together in Nairobi, Kenya, with Tindall and Miller and a few other Americans in August.
All are welcome to join in for GSM International Day of Prayer; or whenever it’s convenient come to our headquarters office to volunteer; or to sign up for lay counseling training; or to apply for individual counseling.
Sunday morning at 9:30 a.m., some Samaritans will stay for fellowship with international leaders, worship and a noon potluck. Other Samaritans will go to various Christian churches in the community where they regularly serve in various positions. GSM serves the community and local churches with opportunities for donation-based counseling, teaching and international service.
