Baptist Global Response
BGR partners will continue community development on a Southeast Asian island this year as they assist poverty-stricken people in isolated mountain villages.
“Many of them depend on agriculture, mainly corn, and an occasional chicken or pig as a means of livelihood,” a partner said. “The underdeveloped land and poor farming techniques lead to lower harvests, and resultant poverty. In addition, the people have poor health care and often difficult access to quality education.”
Through a long-running program, the BGR team provides agriculture, health care and values training to these communities in an effort to improve their conditions.
Pray God will grant BGR partners unity, wisdom, discernment, strength, protection and good health. Please pray the Lord will show the team where to focus future trainings.
Pray that God would call out a medical team, at least two family practitioners and their families, to go and serve long term at the Sanyati Baptist Hospital in Zimbabwe. This medical center has just been totally renovated by BGR and partner USA churches. Staff are needed urgently.
Pray for two medical teams traveling to the Middle East within the next month to work with refugees. Pray for their safety in throughout their journey. Pray for the partners on the ground with whom they will work. Pray that they will bring encouragement along with physical and spiritual help as they face huge needs.
Give thanks with us! Becuase of your generous donations surrounding World Water Day we were able to raise about $10,000. This money will provide people with water filters, hand pumps, wells and more so they can enjoy the health and vitality that comes from drinking safe water. Thank you for observing World Water Day with BGR!
Every minute, a child dies from a water-related illness. Pray the world will take notice, and pray that those in wealthy countries will provide more for the poor, making sure those in need have access to safe water.
