These are some of the things that Jim and his wife, Beth, are asking for prayer for:

  • For peace in Bahrain, where social and political unrest continue.
  • That Jim would be anointed with the Holy Spirit as he shares God’s Word and leads the English-language congregation.
  • That the Lord would shine his light through the entire Harrison family, as they all are deeply involved in the ministry.
  • For the person of God’s choosing to come serve as associate pastor of the English-language congregation and as chaplain with American Mission Hospital.
