Dear Brethren

Your prayers do make a difference! That's why we thank God for you and others like you who are committed to praying for ECS Ministries


Do you have an Apple mobile device? Look for some exciting news about ECS courses being available on the iPod, iPhone, and iPad in the next few weeks. Pray for acceptance by Apple of our Bible Study App.


South Africa – Marlon Govender

Please give thanks to the Lord for the opportunity for me to go into Leeuwkop Prison in Bryanston, Johannesburg, meet with the Religious Care Coordinator, discuss ECS, and then meet with many different prisoners. I also had the opportunity of meeting Edward Smith an inmate who co-ordinates ECS courses in Medium C. I have been invited to preach to at least 120 prisoners on Sunday, May 5, 2013, and thereafter to host a short workshop on ECS courses. Pray for wisdom and strength to share the gospel and promote ECS effectively.

Bible Book Challenge

Pray for the ECS Ministries graders as the final exams are coming in for grading. It is a great time of encouragement to see how God has blessed the participants of this year’s Challenge, but the additional grading adds a strain to the workload.

Pray for the Bible Book Challenge participants that they would have patience as they wait on final scores and certificates, and that the fruit of the Spirit of God would be evident in their lives.

Bangladesh – Asai Tripura

Please pray for us in Bangladesh. Because of strikes, we cannot maintain our schedule, programs, or activities. We cannot send materials to the students in time, cannot visit regularly, and are not getting back courses from the students. We are now at terrible situation. Please pray for our country, government, leaders, and people.

Serbia - Vladimir Majersky

Pray for the preparation of five additional ECS titles to be added to their curriculum. Editing is in process.


Pray for Life’s Key Ministry this week as Gary Griswold meets with PC Mary Ann Bell with the intention of replacing their current grading program with the ECS Ministries version.


Please pray for Karen Abbott our latest Jail Impact Ministries Associate Instructor.

New York – Mike O’Conner

Mike is an Associate Instructor in Yonkers. Pray for improved health and help in following up with students.

Rhode Island – James Moriello

Praise for 72 courses competed so far in 2013.
