Prayers of gratitude and intercession

As we gather in fellowship and hope, we remember our family who live in conflict and crisis: the Kasai and East regions of DR Congo, Myanmar, the Tigray region of Ethiopia, Ukraine, Colombia. Lord, have mercy.

A message from a leader of an MWC member church in Myanmar:

Our country is affected by the global catastrophe: we are suffering from extreme poverty and hunger due to international economic sanctions and internal unrest from war.
We plead for special prayer for the 51 families of our missionaries and church planters and the 415 families of our congregation members. They have left their homes and stay in forest. They have been not able to support their livelihood for a long time. Food shortage is the great challenge.
Please pray for us. We believe that prayer can make a difference.
In this most difficult time of turmoil in Myanmar, God has opened a great door for evangelization. This is the most rewarding time of our mission fields. God is still on the throne.

Pray for those from three Mennonite synods and the local Committee who are preparing for the upcoming 17 GYS and MWC General Assembly events.
