PRAYERS REQUESTS FOR OUR GLOBAL PARTNERS
Our global missions’ brothers and sisters in Christ have asked our Church family to pray for them during these difficult times, as they struggle with a lack of resources to fight the virus.
The 70 younger Ebola children have been so happy at the Orphanage in Freetown.
Now with the virus spreading, Pastor Mansaray will be moving them back to Mercy Ships, the gated compound, where the 70 older children are.
Please pray for kind, supportive volunteers to come along side the staff to help them move the children and their belongings. It is a two hour trip and the orphanage doesn’t have a vehicle.
We pray Our Father will empower the older kids to happily share their spaces with them, once again.
We ask the Father, to assign His Angels to guard them in all their ways.
We pray that all the books, puzzles, games, crafts, etc. that we sent, will help them to have some happy times.
We pray they will have sufficient food and water.
You can tell from the pictures that the children are very distressed. We bind up the spirits of fear and trauma and send
them directly to Jesus for Him to deal with.
Instead, we pray that the Peace of God will cover them like a warm blanket on a cold winter’s night, they will have sweet dreams.
In Jesus Name. Amen
Pastor Moses and Word of Grace Church, Bimbi
HAHFA funds were sent last week and Moses purchased and distributed buckets, soap, gloves to the needy and 7 churches. “We are so thankful!”
May Ps Moses minister to us with his words :
“We thank God because the whole of being a Christian is FAITH AND LOVE.
Faith brings man to God, Love brings man to man.”
“The people have many questions, some are answerable but others need discernment. We thank God because in every situation He has answers to the pandemic or challenges .”
“2 Chronicles 7: Verse 14 provides the solution but the best answer is be Humble and Pray”
We pray for those who are in desperate circumstances and for Pastor Rigo and the Mizpa community; for those who have lost jobs and for those who find the supermarket shelves empty. We are grateful that 60 food baskets have already been distributed through the church and pray that this support will continue.
CANADIAN FOOD GRAINS
We thank Noel Henderson for his many years of dedicated service to this mission. He will be greatly missed. We pray for God to make a way to protect food chains, for our migrant workers, for a good planting season.
