Pray for the food situation in most parts of Africa, as people have started receiving food aid following a complete crop failure from the last short rains (the period between October-December 2016). Families are slowly coming to terms with losing their entire livestock. Water is scarce for both livestock and people. Food security projects, particularly in Kenya have diverted attention from their usual activities to give food relief to save lives, especially for children who are most affected. Pray for food relief and for those impacted by the drought. Also, please pray for travelling mercies for 9 participants being sent from CBM and our African partners, who will be converging in Tanzania for a conference for those working and serving in the East Africa Region, from February 6-12.
