As cold water to a weary soul,
so is good news from a far country.
Proverbs 25:25 (NKJ)
This month Lisa and I have a multi-city, multi-nation trip that touches the nations. We truly are journeying together for His Kingdom and His glory. I am expectant for what the Lord does through these few weeks! Please pray with Lisa and I as we minister to the nations!
Currently, we are in Indonesia, where we have gathered with prayer leaders from around the globe for the beginning of the World Prayer Assembly.
It is an honor to join 8,000 participants from over 60 nations at the World Prayer Assembly 2012  in Bogor, Indonesia. My heart is full and there is so much to share!
I am privileged to co-chair a track on The Role of Prayer in Crisis and Disaster Response and look forward to leading this time. This powerful prayer encounter will culminate with 100,000 gathering in a stadium plus 373 cities joining via live streaming this Thursday. You are invited to join me with millions from Indonesia praying for the nations of the world. Let us all become instruments of revival so that “the earth will be filled with the knowledge of the glory of the Lord as the waters cover the sea” (Hab. 2:14). Watch the full event LIVE online at www.god.tv/liveevents  on May 17 at 1:30 PM ET.
Please watch this short video update from Indonesia and continue to pray with us for the final days of the World Prayer Assembly!
Prior to Indonesia, we stopped in Washington, D.C. and Japan.
Last Tuesday, we were in Statuary Hall of the U.S. Capital Building for a time of prayer with Congressional leaders and staff, as well as other key leaders, before Congress reconvenes. CBN TV provided a webcast of the entire event from Statuary Hall in Washington D.C. Click here  to view (Doug speaks at 57 minutes into the video).
Our next stop was in Japan where we had the opportunity to encourage ministry partners, as well as pray and meet with some members of the Japanese DIET (Parliament). Somebody Cares go to sow resources, including the Ear Bible , given to every member of the Japanese Diet (their Parliament) as well as others!
Please watch this 1 minute video update from Japan and continue to pray with us that this global trip will bear much fruit for the Kingdom!
Next, we go on to Germany en route to Israel. We will meet with long-time ministry partners in Munich and explore possibilities for the start of a Somebody Cares chapter in Germany.
Then on to Israel where, along with a small group, we are official guests of an Israeli Ambassador and the Foreign Ministry. We will meet with the President of Israel and other high level members of the Knesset as well as with ministry partners in the region.
As we sow to the nations, we are believing for a harvest of souls. As a ministry partner, through prayer and support, you will likewise reap with us as many nations and peoples are reached.
May the Lord multiply back to you every seed you have and continue to sow to the ministry through your prayers, friendship and financial support.
Thank you for caring,
