Prayer Intentions

Urgent Prayer Request!

Prayers are urgently needed for our projects in DR Congo and Cameroon! Please storm heaven with your petitions asking for the protection and support of the children and mission partners we have in these locations. With their countries racked with civil war, communications have been difficult, but we know that measures are being taken to protect the children - even as electricity and water are shut off in Cameroon, and as the DR Congo orphans are placed into separate homes.
