This Month’s Prayer Points
Praise God for the overwhelming response from our donors on Giving Tuesday. Our donors helped us raise
63% over our goal to help farmers grow more food in Ethiopia.
Dec 4, 5 & 6 – Wayne and Bruce are attending CFGB (Canadian Food Grains Bank) Board and Program planning meetings. We are so grateful for being part of the CFGB family.
Last year, we implemented over $2.3 million to help lift people out of poverty – training 12,152 families on conservation agriculture, and providing food assistance to 67,451 people in South Sudan and Rohingya refugees in Bangladesh. Pray for us as we plan for 2019.
Pray for year end giving. Many families make year end gifts to charities. Pray that they would remember the work of Tearfund and give generously.
Dec 16 – Wayne is preaching an advent sermon at Hallelujah Chinese Evangelical Free Church titled “Jesus, the Refugee.” In this sermon, he will be sharing about the refugee plight today. There are 68 million refugees around the world seeking peace and hope and looking for a home.
We got approved to submit a proposal to Global Affairs Canada to receive funding for a project in Nigeria, working in an area where Boko Haram is active. Please pray for us as we work diligently to submit the proposal in early January. We are very thankful for Christians who provide additional funds to this important work. Please pray for your continuing support, which is so crucial to enable our Kingdom work to happen.
Pray for the elderly and youth who support us, as they face unique challenges during this time of life.
Pray for our implementing partners working in war-torn and unstable countries, as their staff live in signifi cant risk as they serve the poor and hungry.
Pray for our partner, Fadhili, in Kenya as they seek to expand their savings group program to include agricultural training. The areas they work in are quite dry and farmers need conservation agriculture to improve their crop yields and livelihoods.
Pray for the Rohingya refugees. More than 1 million people are sitting in camps in Bangladesh and neither country (Bangladesh, Myanmar nor others) want them.
Pray for eastern DR Congo. The Ebola epidemic has not been contained yet mainly due to insecurity.
Pray for the peace treaty in South Sudan to hold and for the millions of people displaced to be able to return home. We pray the churches will be involved in bringing healing to a traumatized nation.
