‘Truly I tell you,’ Jesus replied, ‘no one who has left home or brothers or sisters or mother or father or children or fields for me and the gospel will fail to receive a hundred times as much in this present age: homes, brothers, sisters, mothers, children and fields—along with persecutions—and in the age to come eternal life.’ – Mark 10:29-30 (NIV)
Pray for international volunteers, those who serve with Hands at Work in Africa. Pray for those you may know by name, for each one to trust in these words of Jesus, knowing that their choice to make sacrifices in order to serve others will bring challenges, but will also bring eternal life. Ask God to place people in their lives who will encourage them daily. Pray for more international volunteers to join the Hands communities in Africa as we serve the most vulnerable.
Today, we invite you to encourage Hands at Work's international volunteers you may know by name. Find a way to serve them, send them a message, or take time to pray for them and their families.
