AFGHANISTAN

The worst drought in decades is currently affecting 2/3 of Afghanistan. It threatens to cause food shortages for up to two million people across the country in six months. More than 80,000 people have left their villages to go to cities in search of water. Pray that God would bless Afghanistan with a significant amount of rain, and that peace will reign throughout the country. Pray that people will turn to the Lord and care for each other as a community.

 

ONTARIO, BRITISH COLUMBIA & CALIFORNIA

Please continue to pray for the people of Ontario, British Columbia and California where several hundred wildfires are causing massive destruction. Many people have been evacuated, and specifically in California and British Columbia, some buildings, including houses, have been destroyed. Pray that God will pour rain upon the areas so that the fires will be brought under control and that He will protect, strengthen and encourage the firefighters and first responders. Pray also that God will comfort the people in the affected areas who may have lost their homes or loved ones and are facing an uncertain future, and that He will guide and provide for evacuated residents.

 

MANITOBA & NORTHWESTERN ONTARIO DISTRICT

Pray for everyone attending the Family Fellowship Weekend at Manhattan Beach Retreat Centre in Ninette, Manitoba, from August 31 to September 3. May God uplift and encourage them as they worship together, learn from the speaker, and fellowship with one another and with Him. Pray that the Holy Spirit will speak to them and give them a renewed vision on how to reach their communities for Christ. Pray that families will make great memories as they participate in this camp time together. Pray also for the speaker and musical worship team as they prepare for their time together.

 

Elmer & Sherry Komant

BURUNDI

Pray that God will bless, encourage and strengthen Elmer and Sherry as they work with and minister to the people around them. Pray for integral leadership, peace, stability, and economic renewal in Burundi. Pray that the necessary needs will be met for a branch church in Gitega and the Skills Training Centre. Pray for the successful completion of nationalization of Christian Life Ministries over the next several years. Pray that there will be more opportunities to reach people for Jesus and for the unity of the body of Christ that is so fragmented throughout the country.
