“He upholds the cause of the oppressed and gives food to the hungry.” – Psalm 140:7
International Teams and Volunteers
· Many of our international teams and volunteers share that they were blessed by the relationships built with the children and the ability to encourage and show Jesus’ love to them.
· Pray for their time in Africa to not simply be a two-week experience. Ask God to continue to encourage, challenge and convict them once they return home. Pray for God to give them a passion for advocacy so that they will speak up for the most vulnerable children that they met.
· At Maranatha Workshops, the facilitators identify future youth leaders, who can help lead and support the other children. As the youth leaders spend time with the children they show an example of what Jesus’ love looks like.
· Pray for these young leaders to be encouraged and inspired by their Care Workers and for them not to give into peer pressure.
· Please pray for the Care Workers and the Primary Caregivers as they faithfully give of themselves to care for the children. Many children have been in situations where they have been abused and often the Care Workers are the first people to show the children the love of Jesus.
· Pray for the health and protection of the Care Workers as they walk far distances to visit the children in their homes.
· Hands leaders from several countries will travel to this gathering held in Zambia. Pray for God to give them safety.
· Pray for wisdom and unity as they set goals and expectations for 2018. Pray for their time together to be a time of building closer and deeper relationships.
