This is such a powerful testimony of the work of the Holy Spirit that transforms whole communities. Our prayer has been that these families and communities will also experience the love and forgiveness of Jesus Christ and live in harmony with each other and in the fullness of the Lord.

Would you pray with me for these precious ones that are learning to come into the world of literacy that they will have a passion for it and set their minds to grasp and use what is learned.
Also, would you stand with me in intercession for the village of San Francisco so that they would hold fast to their profession of faith and walk firmly and boldly in what the Lord has given them. There are many temptations in the villages and many, many opportunities to be the victim of malicious rumors that could tear down a Godly witness and destroy someone's character. Let's stand in agreement with our brothers and sisters for protection at every level and that they will recognize and yield to the gentle correction of the Holy Spirit when needed.
May the Lord bless you in all that you are doing for the Kingdom and thank you so very much for all the ways you support this work. God sees and takes note!
