Sun 7th – DR Congo Continue praying for the two families in the Ephphatha community who recently lost family members (one passed away from starvation, the other from illness). Pray that God would pour down His comfort on these families at this difficult time.

Mon 8th – Uganda Praise God that the construction of Wakisa’s new health centre is almost complete.

Tue 9th – DR Congo Continue praying for Pytchen and the HEAL Africa staff members who were working in the Mugunga camp nearby when the recent bombing and subsequent violent clashes occurred. Praise God for protecting them from serious physical harm and pray for them as they mentally recover from the terrifying incident.

Sun 14th – Uganda Continue praying for the Bunambutye community (where CFM serves) as they rebuild after recent floods. Many people lost their homes and all of their crops, and they’re currently having issues with clean water as well. Pray for CFM as they support those affected to survive, rebuild, and replant.

Week 4

Mon 22nd – Uganda Continue praying that Wakisa can recruit gynaecologists and paediatricians to volunteer at the new health centre once it opens.

Tue 23rd – DR Congo Continue praying for God’s protection over the Mugunga primary school.
