A friend in need

I keep in touch with a few of my friends in refugee camps through WhatsApp and Facebook Messenger.

One of them reached out to me asking for prayer as she is very sick. She sent me this photo of her laying on the floor of her shelter with her husband reading the Koran over her. She wrote:

“I am so sick and weak. I am praying to Allah so that I can get healthy again.”

We have met many times and she has blessed me with hospitality and honest conversations. She often requests prayer and welcomes my offers to pray for her in Jesus’ name.

I have often told her how the Bible reveals to us that God is near and not far away – and that he sees and hears and cares deeply for us.

I count it a privilege to pray for her and ask that you would join with me. Let’s pray that God would graciously heal her body and restore her strength. Let’s also pray that God would reveal to her the depth and breadth of his love for her. In Jesus’ name.

Service Opportunities

Like every Monday morning, I checked in today with my Executive VP (Tim Barnes) and then the IAFR Service Team to review our priorities for the week.

Among other things, we realized the need to make known some key service opportunities with IAFR, including helping with…

  • Social Media
  • Publications
  • Graphic design
  • Webmaster

These are all important organisational capacities needed for us to advance our mission.

After putting together job descriptions and requirements, we will advertise these needs/opportunities on our website.

Please pray with us that suitable people would join with the IAFR team to serve in these important capacities!
