Haiti: assassination

This week, President Jovenel Moise was assassinated by what appears to be professional contract killers, illustrating the fragility of government in a number of countries in the region. Haiti is also dealing with a wave of gang violence and kidnappings, particularly in the capital, and close to 60 per cent of the population is now living below the poverty line. Pray for help and comfort for all those who need it, and for wisdom for decision makers.

Chile: Constitutional Convention

Pray for the new Chilean Constitutional Convention which has begun work after electing its president, Mapuche linguist and indigenous rights activist Elisa Loncon. Mission partner Alf Cooper, in his role as protocolar representative of the Evangelical Churches to the government, has been working to bring a Christian voice to the convention, so do please pray for him and for that voice to be heard.
