Prayer Focus for November

 

Praise God - Rains are starting in Kenya! Pray for building of water tank bases to catch rain

At the recent Harambee bank opening on Oct. 23rd, the Kenyan women were able to earn enough for 60 water tanks and 4 solar panels. Due to drought, low market prices, and a hard year climate-wise, they were not able to save as much as they have in recent years, but praise God, they seem to be thankful for what they were able to accomplish and are not discouraged.  Pray for the quick building of water tank bases at the women's homes, so that they can install the tanks in time to catch the rain!

Thank God for the Rap Maju Women's Group in Indonesia

Please pray for Ibu Pasaribu, who was recently forced to move from the house she was renting because she wouldn't agree to give her daughter in marriage to the landlord's younger brother. She and her family sold their pig to help them move back to their home village and build a small house with a dirt floor.  Thank God for the Rap Maju women's group, who traveled a long distance to visit her in her new house and rallied around her, giving her extra money to help her buy cement to make a cement floor, instead of a dirt one.  Praise God for the way the women are encouraging and caring for her.

Pray for the one-day training meeting to be held with the women's groups in North Sumatra, Indonesia

Hotmaida is contacting all the groups to make plans to hold a one-day meeting of all the women in the women's groups for the purpose of mutual encouragement and training.  Pray that this will be a time of real blessing and encouragement to all who attend.  

The Family Health Fund has 3 families who are involved.  Please continue to pray that more and more women will join this much-needed cooperative.

Continue to pray for the humanitarian efforts of organizations working where hunger/ famine continues in parts of Africa

Millions of people are experiencing unprecedented hunger and famine in Africa. A combination of conflict, recurring severe drought, and high food prices are to blame.  In a new study, it said, the “shockingly large and often hidden” consequences of prolonged periods without rain threatened to stunt the growth of children and condemn them to a lifetime of poverty.  The report said the lost food production related to drought would feed more than 80 million people every day for a year, adding that while floods and storm surges had an immediate impact, droughts were “misery in slow motion”. 

The World Bank said women that were born in droughts bore the marks for their entire lives, growing up mentally and physically stunted, undernourished and unwell.  New data shows women born during droughts had less access to education, had more children and were more likely to suffer from domestic violence. Problems caused by droughts were passed on to the next generation, leading to a vicious cycle of poverty.

Continue to pray for the humanitarian efforts of World Vision and other organizations in these countries where famine is looming. “Lack of clean water, proper sanitation, and hygiene pose as much danger as starvation.”  Pray for effective transportation of humanitarian supplies to remote areas ... to serve large numbers of people.
