Lifewords Prayer January 6 - 12

 

Growing hope in the Philippines

According to UNICEF there are almost two million orphans living in the Philippines. Jamaica, Director of Village of Hope orphanage in Bohol, recently ordered over 1,000 copies of Lifewords booklets.

 

* "The kids loved how the booklets are put together," says Jamaica. Among the titles ordered was An Invitation. "When we read this together, they told me they felt as if they were receiving an actual invitation to a party with God! They all wanted to take a copy, and one asked me for extra copies to give to their teachers and classmates." Give thanks for the excitement of reading God’s Word in the Philippines. And as Village of Hope plan to build another two homes, ask that God would provide them with the resources they need.

 

* Last month, Village of Hope held an outreach programme. "We have 40 children across four homes," says Jamaica. "But there are hundreds more in the community who are also orphans, have been abandoned, abused, or exploited. There is such an urgent need to bring God’s hope to our communities. I’m so thankful for Lifewords creating and providing such engaging and colourful materials like You Matter. These really speak to the children." Please pray for vulnerable children in the Philippines and around the world. Pray that they may encounter people and places full of God’s love and kindness.

 

* "We’ve also shared Bible booklets in far barangays and islands, in Muslim communities, and in cemeteries where people often visit," says Jamaica. "They are so touched when they receive a booklet. What was first a gift to us from Lifewords, is now a gift to them. They are able to follow the flow of each story through our story-telling sessions and enjoy the simplicity of the photos. There is a growing hope. Thank you so much for what you do." Thank you for your ongoing generosity and support! Praise God that together we are able to bring more and more people into God’s story.
