Day 18 – Food insecurity
For the bread of God is he who comes down from heaven and gives life to the world.” They said to him, “Sir, give us this bread always.” Jesus said to them, “I am the bread of life; whoever comes to me shall not hunger, and whoever believes in me shall never thirst. – John 6:33-35
Food security remains a serious issue in many of the most vulnerable communities in countries like Malawi that Hands at Work are serving. Many people face desperate hunger between November and February when their food supplies run out. Today, pray for people with hearts of compassion to give out of their resources to those who are suffering around them. Ask God to bring comfort, peace and provision to those who are living day to day and don’t know how they are going to survive. Praise God for volunteer Care Workers, who have committed to daily providing the most vulnerable children with a hot and nutritious meal.
Across Africa, in communities like Maposa in Zambia, the most vulnerable children can come to the Life Centre where they receive a hot and nutritious meal from their Care Workers.
