From: Asian Minorities Outreach <email@example.com> We are a small ministry based in the center of the 10/40 window who reach out to see churches planted amongst the Unreached Peoples of China, Laos, Vietnam and Myanmar. These four restricted access countries contain more than 500 distinct Peoples. We produce a bi-monthly People profile on a different group which we send out to raise prayer support and awareness for the groups situation, and also to report first-hand on what God is doing in the region. The profiles include pictures, maps, historical information and ways to best pray for the salvation of the group featured. As of now we are only able to send the profiles out by regular snail-mail. If you are a praying person or if you feel these could benefit your own ministry for the Lord we would be happy to send them to you (free). If you would like to get them, send a message along with your address to: <firstname.lastname@example.org>

PRAYER GUIDE SOURCE--DOWN UNDER
From: "B.HALL" <firstname.lastname@example.org> For the benefit of missionmobilizer subscribers who are "down under" you might make mention of the fact that all of this Praying Through The Window material (plus WindoWatchman) will be available through Centre for Mission Direction as soon as it becomes available in the States. I have already been in touch with Bob Carlton and Beverly Pegues to ensure this happens. We also distribute material for the 30 Days Muslim Prayer Focus and have specially prepared material available for The International Day of Prayer for the Persecuted Church (Sept 29). We also distribute Global Prayer Digest. But the main thing, given your most recent posting, is to let them know this material will be available down here.

30-Day RAMADAN PRAYER GUIDES
Praying for Muslims during the month of Ramadan. This would be a fantastic mission emphasis at your church for January. Have you considered it? You wouldn't even have to fast all month like the Muslims do (during daylight hours)--although many Christians do fast during this time. Missionary friends tell me that the month of Ramadan is always a spiritually oppressive and discouraging time. Let's mobilize our constituencies to pray for Muslims and missionaries to Muslims this January!
The 30-Day Prayer Guides for Ramadan: Each day focuses on a specific area of Islam and Islamic life. Prayer needs are highlighted. Also included is testimonies and teaching on intercession. The Children's edition is filled with pictures, activities, and interesting graphics designed to motivate elementary- age children to pray for the Muslim world. Cost: $3 (adult), $3.50 (children)
DUTCH version of both editions can be obtained at: Frontier Missions Centre, YWAM Heidebeek Mussenkampseweg 32, 8181 PK Heerde, The Netherlands tel# (31) 578 69 1534 fax # (31) 578 69 4276 Email: 100645,firstname.lastname@example.org

VOM 1998 Global Prayer Map
In their "1998 Special Issue" of VOM Magazine, Voice of the Martyrs included a color fold-out wall map of persecution hot-spots across the world and a summary of persecution in over 40 of the "hottest" countries complete with full-color flags. This is an excellent resource for focusing prayer on the persecuted church around the world. One caution: the country summaries are focused on persecution, so they may need to be balanced with other positive information about what God is doing in that country to give a wholistic picture. Send a donation to Voice of the Martyrs, P.O. Box 443, Bartlesville, OK 74005 for a copy.
