Be completely humble and gentle;
be patient, bearing with one another in love.
-Ephesians 4:2 (NIV)

Monday, May 4
Give us humble and gentle attitudes toward others, Lord God. Please fill us with Your patience and lovingkindness so that we don’t act arrogant, irritable, or unloving with those around us.

Tuesday, May 5
This week MAF headquarters will move forward in a limited reopening, based on Idaho Governor Brad Little’s Stage 1 “Stay Healthy Order.” All who can work effectively from home will continue to do so. Pray for prudence and God’s continued protection on this ministry.

Wednesday, May 6
Today MAF teams stop flying and regular work for the purpose of our monthly corporate sabbath-like rest, where we meditate on God’s Word, and spend time in prayer. Please pray for refreshment and strengthening so that we will not grow weary in well-doing.

Thursday, May 7
Lift up Rolland and Jessica Trempert who are missionaries currently serving in Africa. The Tremperts served for eleven years as a pilot/mechanic family in Colombia and Venezuela. In 1993 Rolland accepted a position in the safety department at MAF headquarters, and is currently the director of Safety. Jessica is MAF’s travel coordinator. Rolland and Jessica are serving short-term in Mozambique. Pray for new donors to join their support team.

Lift up Warren and Julie Veal who are missionaries serving with MAF in Nampa, Idaho. Warren is an avionics technician working with the electronics in MAF’s fleet. He is also pursuing certification to do special avionics inspections. Julie keeps the home running smoothly and volunteers at their local church.

Sunday, May 10
Today in some cultures, including mine, we celebrate Mother’s Day. Praise God for the mother God put in your life and ask Him to help you be a nurturing person to those around you. Pray that MAF families will be life-givers in the communities where they live.
