Continue to lift to the Lord the family of Juan Carlos, the little boy from the Dominican Republic who tragically drowned at the weekend (see yesterday’s post for more information). Please pray that God would provide His comfort and peace to them, the community of Monte Plata, and the children, staff and missionaries in our ministry as they continue to grieve.

Pray for our South Sudan Director, Francis Tombe, as he travels to the US today to speak at two summer conferences. Pray that his visit would be successful and help us advance our important work with street children in Wau. Pray for safety and peace for Francis’ family, and protection on the children and staff at the Good Shepherd Home, while he is away from South Sudan.

Jed Hamoud, our Vice President of Operations for Africa and the Middle East, recently shared with Mission Network News about the precarious security situation in Lebanon. Pray for peace in this volatile region, and for God’s special protection upon the children (see picture left) and staff in our two children’s homes, school and care center programs in three locations in Lebanon.

Corbey Dukes, our Field Director in Guatemala, asks for prayer as he deals with some very challenging situations involving some of the children in our home there. Pray for wisdom, peace and strength for him and his staff; pray also that God will bring about incredible transformation in the lives of the abused and vulnerable children that we care for in Guatemala.

Thank God for the service teams that are using their talents and enthusiasm in many of our children’s homes, schools and care centers around the world. Pray that the playground that is being installed by a service team to Mitaboni, Kenya, this week (see picture right) would be an amazing blessing and encouragement to the children in our home and community there!

“Be strong and courageous. Do not be terrified; do not be discouraged, for the Lord your God will be with you wherever you go” (Joshua 1:9). Pray that these commands and truths will be taken to heart by our children, that they will grow up knowing the Lord’s strength and presence with them, and that, as a result, their lives would have an amazing impact for Him in their families, communities and nations!
Thank you for your prayers!
