CMS-Africa ask for prayer for the peace of God to prevail, for the security agencies to be able to discharge their mandates of providing security to the country, and for all the affected families and individuals to be comforted by the Holy Spirit.

DR Congo: killings near peace centre

New floods in Tonj North County, Warrap State, have destroyed houses and crops and displaced up to 46,000 people. The World Food Programme reports that it needs $568 million to provide emergency food aid and maintain operations for six months – not only food provision but building dykes, repairing roads, and whatever enables the assistance to be delivered.

Jordan: settling back into Amman

Please pray for mission partners Fiona and Joel Kelling, who have returned to Jordan. They write that in addition to all the life admin that goes with getting set up again, their children’s sleep schedule isn’t back on track yet, which is leaving them all feeling quite drained. Pray for a good sleep schedule to be established soon and for them to settle back into life in Amman quickly.
