Missions Giving Update

With our donation deadline of Aug. 31 now past, we are encouraged to report that just over $35,000 has come in as missions donations to be sent for humanitarian relief (through WorldServe Ministries Canada) in answer to the crisis in the Horn of Africa.  In addition, the Canadian Government will be matching this amount through the CIDA program.

Please continue to pray for the people of Eastern Africa—precious men, women and children enduring tragic suffering—asking for God’s hand upon their leaders to bring peace and for the strength and wisdom of those on the ground working valiantly to serve in the midst of such tremendous need.  Please pray for WorldServe and the many other ministries and relief organizations, that they would be empowered with the love and power of Jesus Christ to share  light and life as well as the important practical resources of food and shelter.
