Daily prayers

Alan and Pauline Jordan

Alan and Pauline Jordan serve in Marsabit, northern Kenya, where Alan teaches at the Northern Bible Training Centre and Pauline works in a local primary school. Marsabit has experienced increasing unrest in recent months and local people have been moving away out of concern for their families’ safety. Alan and Pauline have relocated south to Nanyuki and will be coming to the UK for Home Assignment at the end of May. Please pray for lasting peace in Marsabit, especially in the run-up to Kenya’s general election in August. 

AIM building

Pray about the sale of our AIM’s property in Nottingham. We have accepted an offer and are moving toward exchange of contracts. Pray for the sale to go through if it is God’s will and that we would be wise in the use of this resource. Pray too for us as we look for a new premises, pack up, sell up, store stuff, digitise archives, and find a permanent home for our historical archives. 

Karimojong

Please pray for Karamoja, in Uganda where there has been increased amounts of cattle raiding between the Karimojong people and the Turkana of Kenya. Guns have returned and over the past three years it has been estimated that over 2000 people across the region have lost their lives through violence. Pray for the church in the region to be a light in the dark, and in particular, for some of the rural church leaders who used to be raiders or shepherds, pray they would preach well about the Prince of Peace to those committing these acts of violence. 

Jessica Melagne

Pray for Jessica and Espérance serving in Bunia, DR Congo. Jessica shares, “I don’t know all the reasons, but it is difficult to find many Congolese Swahili Bibles. When those Bibles are available, they are quite expensive: more than a week’s pay. That’s a lot for families who often have only one income. There isn’t an online Congolese Swahili Bible, they can have access to French online versions, but again, not everyone has a smartphone to do so.” Pray for God’s Word to be more accessible in DR Congo. 

Paul and Helen

Paul and Helen are currently in France with their children, learning French ahead of a move to West Africa. Please keep praying for their French learning, they are giving thanks that they have seen improvement and have learnt a lot since September. Now they only have six weeks of classes left so pray they can learn in these the things that are really needed to give them the best start in West Africa. 

Hervé and Nathalia Ramangalahy

Pray for Hervé and Nathalia serving in Nosy Be, Madagascar who have made the decision to return to   ministry there rather than remain in Switzerland as planned following Home Assignment in the summer. Pray for them as they adjust, Nathalia has had to give up the idea of returning to her previous job. Give thanks they feel at peace with their decision and are keen to develop further ministry among the Sakalava.

‘Praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ! In his great mercy he has given us new birth into a living hope through the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead.’ 1 Peter 1:3
