Pray with Carla Nelson

Carla Nelson is my name and I am honoured to serve as the Education Specialist on CBM’s Africa Team. It is with joy and gratitude that I share aspects of our joint work so that you can continue to be our partners in prayer.

I delight in my colleagues on the Africa Team and ask that you continue to uphold each one in prayer.

I also request that you continue in prayer for our work in Africa. Pray for our partner denominations and their leaders, new learning initiatives that are being offered, and all those whose livelihoods have suffered in the past years due to the implications of the pandemic.

May the God of peace, who brought back from the dead our Lord Jesus, the great shepherd of the sheep, by the blood of the eternal covenant, make you complete in everything good so that you may do his will, as he works among us that which is pleasing in his sight, through Jesus Christ, to whom be the glory forever (Heb. 13: 20-21). Amen.
