Pray for one of the leaders of our African church partners, who is facing a significant health challenge. Church partners in Congo also continue to navigate the Ebola crisis and people in their communities are fearful. Some have been healed but still face the stigma that comes with having been stricken with the disease. There is some circulation of inaccurate information about the disease, which adds to the fear and confusion. Please pray that pastors and church leaders will have courage, clarity and compassion during this time.
