Prayer Requests:

  1. Please pray for our team, that God will give us physical and emotional stamina, good health, and great sensitivity to the leading of the Holy Spirit. Pray that what we will experience will drive us to a deeper reliance on Christ. Pray that God will give us great wisdom in responding to overwhelming needs with very limited resources. Pray for our team’s psychological/emotional health.
  2. Please pray for the children and youth that we will be ministering to.  May their hearts be open – may they experience healing and feelings of being loved and valued and cared about
  3. Pray that God will lead each who will be teaching and sharing.
  4. Pray for protection from Satan’s attacks and disruptions. We have learned that doing trauma work in African settings like this is going deep into Satan’s home turf. He will attempt to attack our team and the attenders in a myriad of ways physically and emotionally. Pray with us against Satan’s attacks.
  5. Even though rest is included in the schedule of the trip – it will be a very full and intense schedule.

We are in great need of your faithful prayers. Only God can heal people and communities who have and continue to suffer so greatly.  On every trip we see God move in miraculous ways and are trusting Him to do that again! We will send trip updates as often as possible so you can hear what God is doing and how to keep praying. Thanks so much for your support.  We feel your prayers while we are serving on the field!
