Sunday, January 2 – North Africa
During a children’s meeting, a local missionary learned that it was a little girl’s birthday and afterward brought her a piece of cake with a candle in it. Moved to tears, the child said it was the first time she felt someone cared about her since losing her mother. Workers hold several events for children, help the poor with aid and vocational training and offer biblical counseling that restores marriages, among other ministries, and such care helps them start Bible studies and lead people to faith in Christ. Local missionaries need support of $60 or $120 to help with their monthly expenses. They request prayer for resources to make up for pandemic-related shortfalls and more capacity to expand outreach.
