Please be in prayer for our sisters around the world:
- Esperance Nyirandayisenga, coordinator of “Life is Expensive,” our partner project in Rwanda, as she battles malaria.
- Rana Al-Arja, coordinator of a (partner project) women’s radio show in Palestine, and all in Palestine, especially Gaza, throughout this recent escalation of violence. Rana writes: “To us there is no celebration with the horrible aggression going on in Gaza; our hearts are full of pain and sorrow. Everything is canceled in Bethlehem and with this situation I don’t think any more tourists will come to Palestine.” Unemployment is overwhelming throughout Palestine and the West Bank, and Bethlehem is fully dependent on tourism.
- Please pray for all suffering in this world, and thank God for the blessing of the work these women are doing in their communities! May this new year be more peaceful than the last!
