We are in consultation with pastors and ministry leaders on the field. Please pray as we plan to help and serve our suffering people.

“We remember also all who suffer from physical dangers, temptation, doubts, illness of mind or body, financial distress and especially those who are near death. May the cross and resurrection of Jesus Christ your Son refresh them in their trials and give them the grace to bear the difficulties you send them for their good. Give also to us the grace to share in their suffering and provide for their needs as we are able. Comfort, we pray, all widows and orphans and be to them a father.” – Prayers for Church and Family Life (United Reformed Churches in North America)
