Unrest in Haiti
Nearly two weeks of violent anti-corruption protests in Haiti has left residents short of food, fuel and drinking water as the government struggles to restore order. Across the country, people are bracing for more violent protests as political leaders urge citizens to return to normal activities. The anti-government riots have forced the closure of schools and many businesses. Please pray for the safety of all people as the riots continue. Pray also for the government to stop using corrupt practices and that justice would come for the people of Haiti. Pray for people who have been affected to receive the resources they need during this time of unrest.

A Praise Item from Baptist World Alliance:
“Wonderful News! The Lord has moved. Gregory Jose Perez, the imprisoned youth leader from Venezuela, was set free today. As our contact shared, “Gregory is at home with his family, he is at home and he is fine, and he is giving thanks for everyone who prayed for him.” However, he must still be appear before a judge in 8 days. So keep praying that charges will be dropped. For background and how to keep pressing the advocacy see the story below. But let us give thanks and prayerfully celebrate this welcome development.”
