Pray for our nation and for the world!
[1Pe 3:15 NKJV] 15 But sanctify the Lord God in your hearts, and always [be] ready to [give] a defense to everyone who asks you a reason for the hope that is in you, with meekness and fear;
As I write this we are all in the middle of the greatest global pandemic of our time. Way out of our control but never out of the control of our loving Heavenly Father. I wanted to quickly give you some prayer requests.
1. Sherill Sedillo, one our missionaries and ministry partners at Hearts for Africa (https://hearts4africa.org/) in Uganda is right now on a plane from Uganda bound for home. She is on the last commercial flight out of that country as the President of Uganda ordered a halt to all commercial flights into and out of the country as of midnight tonight. https://www.aa.com.tr/en/africa/uganda-borders-closed-to-keep-coronavirus-out/1774609
Please pray for her as she makes her way home. Pray for traveling mercies and safe passage. Pray that she makes her connecting flights and arrives healthy in the USA.
2. Pray for Uganda as they have recorded their first confirmed case of the Corona Virus yesterday. We have seen the numbers in the USA rise so rapidly. Imagine this virus running rampant through 3rd world countries. Our ministry partners and church plants are gearing up to minister in this situation. They are concerned but are looking to Jesus as their Great Hope. They desire to reach out in the love of Christ and share with the people there the "reason for the hope that lies within them."
3. Pray for Rwanda that is currently on a lockdown that is stricter than our own. Everything is closed including grocery stores. People there are not hoarding or stocking up simple because they do not have the money to do so. Paul and Elizabeth Johnson have some supplies the Lord led them to buy so that they can minister to their neighbors. Here is an article about their work. https://twualumni.org/blog/8438-2/
3. Of course the whole world needs our prayers as does our own nation. It is so easy to feel helpless however God has given us direction.
[2Ch 7:14 NKJV] 14 "if My people who are called by My name will humble themselves, and pray and seek My face, and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin and heal their land.
