Last week, the United Nations announced that nearly 7 million people in South Sudan are in urgent need food, water and basic medicine. Continue to pray for the millions who have had fled their homes for surrounding countries since the crisis began nearly five years ago. Pray that God would continue to give physical and spiritual strength to the frontline workers of this crisis – including our church partner in South Sudan (Faith Evangelical Baptist Church) who is overwhelmed by the needs within communities. Give thanks to God that Canadian Baptists can walk alongside them and offer support at this critical time.
CBM’s SENT program allows churches and individuals to have an immersive experience in another culture. Pray for the SENT team from First Baptist Church in Lethbridge who are currently in Matanzas at the Annual Assembly of CBM’s partner, the Fraternity of Baptist Churches in Cuba. Ask that God would give them safety as they travel to visit churches and build relationships with leaders. Give thanks for the church’s ongoing commitment to ministry in Cuba and how their partnership is making an impact.
Please uphold in prayer the important work of Strategic Associates Dan and Melody Grove and their Bible translation team as they start the final read-through of the entire New Testament in Bambalang. Praise God for this vital project that has been in progress for several years and all the men and women who have contributed their time and expertise to it. Pray for God’s guidance and help in the process, the health and safety for all involved and opportunities for people to hear God’s word in their own language for the first time.
