This Month’s Prayer Points
Heavy rain has caused flooding this monsoon season in India. Pray for our partner EFICOR as they have a large response in the western state of Maharashtra. Our program officer and CEO just visited India. Please pray that our partners will be able to manage the two agriculture projects, reflecting the love of Christ to bring hope to tribal communities in the eastern part of the country.
Late and low rains have greatly reduced crop yields in Kenya, Tanzania and parts of Ethiopia, which many people depend on for their livelihoods. Pray that these people will be able to feed their families, and that farmers will learn and apply the conservation agriculture our partners are teaching.
We are grateful that well over 7,000 farmers have learned how to do sustainable conservation agriculture and over ½ of those are in savings groups. The rains were erratic in the spring, so please pray for a good harvest.
Ebola in the DRC
The current Ebola outbreak in Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC) is the worst on record in the country and the second-largest epidemic of the disease recorded anywhere. Almost a year after the declaration of the outbreak, more than 2,100 people have died from the virus. The good news is that the rate of infection slowed down in September, and approximately 1000 people who received the disease survived.
Thank God it is mostly peaceful now. The assistance program finished in September feeding 1,200 families, but due to various causes of food insecurity pray for a new project we hope to start later in October.
Prayer for Thanks
Thank God for an amazing time at last months Hymnfest in partnership with The Peoples Church. The event raised approximately $8000 that will go help women and girls in South Sudan who have been victims of physical and sexual abuse.
Pray for Volunteers
Pray that more people would be interested in volunteering for us. We are in need of 2-3 volunteers to help with office and administration work on a weekly or bi-weekly basis.
