Assemblies of God missionaries, Skyping in from around the world, will share their testimonies and urgent prayer needs during a focused time of seeking the Lord through the global online World Prayer Meeting coming in May. Recorded live by Cornerstone Church in Bowie, Maryland, with host pastor Mark Lehman, this annual hour-long event begins at 7 p.m. Wednesday, May 28 - Ascension Day.

"As we join together in prayer, we anticipate answers to prayer and breakthroughs among unreached peoples who have yet to hear the hope of the gospel," says AGWM Communications Director Randy Hurst. "In 2013, more than 30 percent of AGWM personnel were involved in ministry to unreached people groups. That number continues to grow."

The World Prayer Meeting's first webcast begins at 7 p.m. Eastern Standard Time and available online immediately thereafter.

"Prayer for divine intervention and empowerment in our mission is not an option: It is an absolute necessity," says Greg Mundis, AGWM executive director. "We will only accomplish God's purposes and the specific individual tasks He has for us as a mission if we can marshal a spiritual army of intercessors to pray that God will open doors among the unreached and protect and sustain our missionaries." 

"Individuals are encouraged to participate in this inspiring event," Hurst says, "but if your church has the compatible technical capabilities, please consider projecting the broadcast in the sanctuary and use the prayer meeting in your regular Wednesday evening service."

Jeff Hartensveld, AGWM mobilization director who will be leading the prayer meeting says, "Imagine, if we pray with an urgency to match the times and days we are living in, what the Lord will do!"

To help direct prayers during and following the event, AGWM has created six prayer cards, one from each of the six AGWM geographic regions.

"Each card includes a brief message from the regional director concerning the prayer focus," Hurst explains. "However, if you plan to use these cards in conjunction with the World Prayer Meeting, they must be ordered by May 16." To acquire cards, call (800)-988-6568.

The site of the World Prayer Meeting broadcast is currently being developed, but once the site is ready, the link will be posted on the AGWM home page and in an upcoming AG News release.

Cuban general superintendent's wife dies unexpectedly

Fri, 21 Dec 2012 - 9:56 AM CST

Dania Hunter, wife of Rev. Hector Hunter, the Assemblies of God general superintendent of Cuba for the past 16 years, died unexpectedly Tuesday.

According to AG World Missions reports, Dania Hunter was rushed to the hospital and a short time later, passed away.

"God has sovereignly been at work within the Assemblies of God throughout Cuba under the leadership of Hector and Dania Hunter," says Dick Nicholson, AGWM Latin America/Caribbean regional director. "Please hold the family up in prayer during this difficult time. Sister Dania will be greatly missed."

U.S. AG General Superintendent George Wood expressed his deep regard and sympathy for the Hunter family.

"Through the efforts of Hector and Dania Hunter, the gospel message has been transforming countless lives in Cuba," Wood says. "Their selfless ministry and service to Christ and the people of Cuba, despite difficult circumstances, is truly remarkable. I cannot imagine the family's pain at the loss of Dania, but I pray for the peace and presence of the Holy Spirit to be with them and comfort them."

In 2007, Dr. Wood spoke at the 61st General Council of the Assemblies of God of Cuba. He observed that the church was a vibrant and fast growing church with a heart for their nation.
