Caring in Cote d’Ivoire
Constant display is the Christian way. COVID-19 provides an opportunity for the Church to put the love of Christ on constant display. Our acts of service and attitudes bring hope to many people who struggle with fear and illness. We rejoice to hear how Community Health Evangelism (CHE) trainers in Cote d’Ivoire share the Gospel while giving instruction in COVID-19 awareness.
In Abengourou, one CHE team has touched 600 families so far. Twenty individuals have chosen to confess Jesus, including two souls from Muslim families. In one setting, the team gave the Gospel and health instruction to a community of 100 drug addicts. Pray for believers in many places who reach out in tangible ways to hurting individuals and communities.
Prayer and Praise
- Thank the Lord with us for the lives touched through the COVID-19 outreach in Cote d’Ivoire! Pray for the twenty people who became followers of Christ through this CHE ministry, especially the two former Muslims who likely will face some form of persecution in that setting. Ask the Lord to give the CHE workers continued strength as they work
- Ivorians continue to ask us to pray for peaceful elections.
- Debbie strained her ankle last week and continues to have some mobility issues. Pray that the tissue will heal quickly and not cause problems during our upcoming travels.
