Latest prayer points

Malawi
Glad Tidings Orphan Care: Thank God for all the donations which are given to the Glad Tidings Orphan Care centre to enable the work of caring for the children on a daily basis to continue. Pray for the staff and nursery school teachers as they educate the children. Thank God also that the health clinic construction is nearly completed. Pray that it will help many people to access medical help in the community when it opens in 2020. Thank God for the ambulance as it is already providing a valuable service to those in the community. (Starfish Malawi - January 2020)
Madagascar
Good News Project benefits Tsimihety people: Give thanks for the Good News Project in Mandritsara, northern Madagascar, which seeks to plant and strengthen churches among the unreached Tsimihety people group through a hospital, school, and radio station. Pray that it would continue to be a source of light and hope to the Tsimihety people and that the church would continue to grow and strengthen.
Angola
Braille Bibles for the visually impaired in Angola: An estimated 295 million people worldwide are visually impaired, 40 million of whom are totally blind. The Scottish Bible Society is currently working to provide Braille Bibles for people with sight impairment in Angola, where blind people do not have the same standing as those with healthy sight and are often marginalised and treated as second class citizens. Please pray with us as we seek to give people with Visual Disabilities the opportunity to experience the joy of reading God’s Word for themselves. Pray that the gospel may transform many lives as more people have access to a Braille Bible. Pray too that the church in Angola would reach out to those with a disability and become a more inclusive community.
Kenya
More workers needed among the Gabbra people: Give thanks that the Gabbra people of north Kenya are eager to hear the gospel. The harvest is plentiful, but the workers are few. Pray that the Lord of the harvest would send more workers among the Gabbra. Pray too that the Gabbra believers would be effective evangelists to their own people. Give thanks for Gabbra church members as they seek to reach out to rural families and villages with the gospel. Pray that the stories from Genesis they are sharing will resonate and cause villagers to ask more questions.
