Communities where Christ is least known

Internally Displaced People

While Burkina Faso was previously known for its stability, that has recently changed. Now, there is an epidemic of internally displaced people. In the last two years alone, violence has displaced more than 150,000 people from their homes. Many are living in makeshift refugee camps, but water and food supplies are scarce. Others are seeking shelter with extended family, which for many is putting already fragile financial situations under extreme stress.
In May 2019, the United Nations Office for the Coordination of Human Affairs stated that the funding shortfall to feed, clothe and shelter Burkina Faso’s displaced people is currently estimated at GBP 50 million. In addition, over 1,000 schools have been closed, depriving nearly 146,000 children of education.
Many of these displaced people are from Muslim communities. Pray that the violence of terrorist groups will lead many to develop an openness to the gospel. Pray that Christians and the Church will reach out to Muslim neighbours and show Christ’s love. Pray for wisdom for how our workers can safely and effectively respond to this humanitarian crisis with love and the good news.

Prayers

1

Pray for a change in the new trend of persecution of Christians that started in 2019. Pray that the church would stand firm and shine as a light in the darkness.

Sports Friends moves to the megacity

Sports Friends has ministries in many of the far-flung corners of the world; from Peru, to Nigeria to Thailand.
