2013 03 prayer calendar
Pray for our ministry in Ethiopia:
Please pray for our new school we started in Meki, Ethiopia. It has been a real challenge to get this school up and running with the needed staff, school supplies and uniforms needed. We have right now 53 students. (See pictures and short video of them singing on my last visit in February at url??). We are praying right now for the library we hope to start in this school. No libraries exist at all in this town of around 60,000 people. Pray with us that God will provide the funds to cover our start up costs for this school and the cost for this library. And pray for Melaku Abebe, our Field Director, who oversees various ministries in this country of Ethiopia.
Pray for Nicaragua:
Francisco Caldera, our Field Director in this country, continues to oversee a wide assortment of ministries for us. Pray for the water well ministry, the 4 feeding centers we help to support for around 700 orphans and needy kids, the construction work of our new office/training center and the management and arrangements of hosting various mission trips for ministry and our Pastors Conferences.
Also, pray for Robert and Ann Messier, who are scheduling trips for people to visit and minister on mission trips for this summer.
And pray for Gary Jones, our International Training Director, as he sets up Pastors Conferences in this country and other countries.
And for Bruce McIntosh, our member Care Director, who is planning a Couples conference this April.
Pray for Liberia:
Isaac Zoedah, our Field Director in Liberia continues to oversee our water well ministry in this country and the care of around 50 orphans and needy kids. He is also overseeing the construction of our office/training center and the strategic plan to start a school in this war torn country. Please keep all this in your prayers.
Pray for Kenya:
Ken Gatithi heads up our work in Kenya which consists of caring for 50+ blind and visually impaired kids and our water well ministry. We are also moving into some new areas with a more holistic approach as we minister to various villages and communities. This involves research at this time into fish farming and income generating projects to help communities get on their feet and off of financial assistance from others.
