New Field Staff
CBM recently appointed two new National Field Staff: Joe Bridi for the Middle East and North Africa (MENA) region and Pradeep Babu Gara for India. Based in Lebanon, Joe will work with CBM’s local partners throughout the MENA region to develop strategies for ministry and provide support to graduates of Arab Baptist Theological Seminary. Pradeep will serve alongside our church partners in India, particularly with budgeting and reporting. Please pray for Joe and Pradeep as they transition into their new roles, which begin on January 1, 2019. Pray that God would provide them with wisdom, direction and guidance as they serve the communities represented in their regions. May they find strength each day to share the love of God in both word and deed.
Kakuma Refugee Camp
Please join us in praying for those living in Kenya’s Kakuma refugee camp, which is home to a large population of people affected by the South Sudan conflict. Please pray for their health, safety and overall well-being during this difficult time of transition in their lives. Pray especially for the health of young children and babies, as they are most vulnerable to illness and malnutrition. CBM’s Kakuma Community Development Project helps people in the camp to access a grinding mill, which converts their maize rations into flour. This allows them to make meals for their families and nutritious porridge for their babies. Please pray that more people would be able to access a grinding mill and that they would sense the love of Jesus through this much-needed support. May the peace and comfort of God give them strength and renewed hope during this challenging season.
Please join us in praying for Ruth Munyao who serves as CBM Field Staff based in Kenya. Ruth manages our Food Security program in Africa, ensuring that best practices are modeled and implemented. She also oversees capacity-building activities for food security staff. Please pray for Ruth and the team as they seek to implement sustainable farming practices and other interventions throughout Africa. Ruth requests prayer for the following:
- Pray for peace in Kenya and the whole of Africa
- Pray for adequate rains and for the farming community as they try to adapt to the harsh climate
- Pray that my family will grow closer to Christ
