Violence and persecution aren’t new, however, that doesn’t change the heartbreak and horror. There are many things that aren’t reported in the US that are happening around the world, just like there are many things that are happening in the US that aren’t reported around the world. We live on a huge continent – Africa. Africa consists of 53 different countries. We have friends who serve in 24 of the 53 countries. Our hearts break for the horrors that have been going on in Central African Republic for more than a year now. Our hearts break for churches being burned in Niger. Our hearts break for the wake of death of Ebola in many of the nations. Our hearts break for those in Nigeria, Chad and the Far North of Cameroon who are being abducted, killed, tortured and terrorized by B.H. We live approximately 800 miles from the Far North (about two days, hard drive).
It’s so easy for me to get caught up in my own little world (especially when I’m not feeling my best) and not be mindful of all who surround me who are suffering.
We will pray for Africa even as we pray for you. We pray for peace, deliverance for those persecuted, and most of all for God to pour out His grace in these trying times
Praying specifically for your health & protection. I will also be lifting up the rest of Africa & the other missionaries who out of obedience are experiencing life altering events. Love you all so much!
I pray that because you know who God is, and understand how He works, AND realize who you are as His child that He will keep you in his safety and direct all evil to stay clear of His children. Continue to sustain you in while you share His word and love with the Nations. That He grant you giggles, understanding, and mercy in your time left in Africa. Peace for all of our nations!
Prayers. Prayers. Prayers. I pray for a hedge of protection for the four of you…and for fellow believers in Christ, especially in Africa and other places where horrific acts and events are taking place. Be safe. Get well.
