We know that the most valuable thing we could offer our local and global partners is our prayers. Our God is able to do far more than we could ask or imagine and He invites us into that Holy Spirit work through prayer. As you pray for the requests below, click on the ‘I prayed for this’ button to let our partners know they are not alone.
If you are not an Outreach Partner, but have a prayer need, we want to help! Please CLICK HERE to submit a request to our Compassion Prayer Teams.
Ron & Doris Weeks - Democratic Republic of the Congo
It is difficult to know what is really happening in D R Congo, but the official report concerning COVID-19 cases is that there have been 863 confirmed cases and 36 deaths. Much prayer is needed for the situation not to deteriorate. It is estimated that there are only 65 ventilators in the country for over 80 million people.
Congo’s more than 100 prisons are all overcrowded making them “ticking time-bombs” for COVID-19 infection. With the newly imposed restrictions on personal contact, family members are not allowed to bring food to their inmate relatives. Dozens die of starvation every month due to a lack of government funds for food. A large percentage of those detained have not yet been convicted of any crime and are awaiting trial. Please pray that the officials will have the wisdom.
Our teams in Mbandaka are working hard to increase the production of our gardens since produce in the market place is becoming more scarce and expensive. We are feeding the team’s families and the teachers while the English center is on lockdown.
Please pray for Thomas and Jures (Team Leaders) and the others to be “light” and “salt” to their teams and families and in their communities.
