Our team in Ethiopia has shared these three key prayer points for the ministry with the Awi people through agriculture:
Praise God for the Ethiopian Leadership He has raised up to continue to manage the 5Fs project’s operations! Pray for them as they pursue their own vision and mission within the 3 year project agreement they have with the Ethiopian government.
Part of this project’s renewed vision is to go deeper into the Awi countryside in partnership with other believers to raise up local Farmer Promoters (experts) for many of our technical agricultural development initiatives, and who may also be open to receiving and sharing the Gospel within their Awi communities.
For the rural, Awi, landless youth who seem most eager to adapt and change both in business/farming practices and spiritual/relational practices.
We believe in the power of prayer and that it is an essential component that brings the global church together. So when you pray for the Mek'ele Youth Centre, please pray for:
- MYC to develop and implement successful community-based models of sports centers and school sport centres for multiplication over all of Ethiopia.
- For more volunteers from abroad to help with our project and youth activities.
- For the development of programmes for our deaf community to more fully engage in the mainstream youth community and address their unique needs.
Thank you for your interest in Hidden Abilities. We value and believe in the power of prayer.
So, if you pray, please pray...
- That God would raise up a missionary physical therapist who has a heart for children with special needs who can also be the project manager for Hidden Abilities.
- That Hidden Abilities will be a place where children experience quality treatment, love and respect and will learn about Jesus’ love for them
- That parents will be patient as the children overcome their physical challenges so that they develop to their full potential
Pray for SIM’s administrative personnel - people like Veronica who are often making big sacrifices in order to ensure the work of bringing good news to people who haven’t heard can go on.
