The war in Syria is still raging – and refugees continue to flood into Lebanon. Today we launch an appeal to provide food and meet the basic needs of some of these refugees. Read Mr Mohad’s story here; pray for this family and many others that are suffering. Pray also that we would be able to shine the light of Christ into terrible situations like this.

Our home and care center in Romania are having a great impact in improving educational standards, raising children’s self-esteem and sharing the love of Jesus in the village of Dobrun. Pray for continued excellent relationships between our ministry and this community, and that the children would become strong Christian leaders that would bless their families and have a positive impact on their country in the future.

Our goal is to help our children reach their full potential. Pray for the older teenagers in our programs, that they would be motivated towards their studies, develop important life skills, and put their faith in Christ as they prepare for independent living. Thank God for the new Independence Home that we opened recently for older girls in Haiti – pray that these girls would become all that God intends for them.

Many of our children in Zambia begin Christian summer camps and VBS programs today. Pray for continued growth in these children’s relationships with the Lord and that our staff in Zambia would be effective in discipling those children and young people that have made commitments to follow Him.

Pray for strength for Francis and his staff at this time of uncertainty; that God would provide for the needs of our children; and for a lasting peace in this needy land.

Our children around the world will be attending church today. Pray that God would do amazing things in and through these young people’s lives as they grow in their knowledge and understanding of him. Pray also for our leadership teams and staff, that they would know His peace, wisdom and strength as they care for the children on a daily basis.
Thank you for your prayers!
