Weekly Prayer Focus: Flood Victims

It's been a while since we've been able to do a WEEKLY prayer focus. After our 30 days of Prayer during Ramadan, I had planned to kick off the weekly prayer requests again but then the flood came & we focused (& are continuing to do so) our efforts & our minds there. Thank you to everyone who has prayed. The Lord is continuing to hear your prayers!

Biba's family has returned to their home as the waters have finally receded enough to pass on the roads. The river is continuing to recede. Two weeks ago, there were places where all you could see were the tops of the trees & now you can actually seek the trunks of those same trees. It really is unbelievable to see how much it's gone down!

But there is still much work to be done & much prayer needed. Some of you who've visited us in the last year have been to a certain village & camped out at a certain man's house for a day or 2 of discipleship. His house was not even right on the edge of the river but because the river crested over the levee that was in place, the waters came all the way to his house & it fell under the pressure of the rising waters. His "house" is now a mat, a mosquito net & the very small amount of personal possessions he owned.

Please pray for our believers who have lost everything. Pray that God would provide for every one of their needs. Pray that they could cling to Him as they seek to rebuild their lives. Pray that they would be a light to their village as they put their hope & trust in Him. Pray that God would draw many to Himself as a result of their testimonies.
