| Pray for Glen and Rita Chapman training Christian leaders and uplifting lives through economic development and environmental ministries in the Democratic Republic of the Congo.

December will be an unstable time in Congo due to unrest over elections…
Much of the foreign population is departing by mid-month. As there is not any anti-west or anti-foreign sentiment, we feel it is safe to be tucked away at Kikongo.

Patti and Tim Long | Pray for Patti and Tim Long ministering for Christ in the midst of migrants seeking asylum in the U.S. now waiting in Tijuana, Mexico.

It is quite cold now in Tijuana and the migrants are not prepared nor is there enough food and shelter for them — we strive to help as possible and as donations arrive. As you are aware, there is a direct way to help with monetary donations through the IM website. Please pray — this is a complex, ever-changing situation, but so important to keep our eyes, hearts and hands focused on how we can serve these asylum seekers who are in dire need.

| Pray for Kihomi Ngwemi and Nzunga Mabudiga serving the Lord in various ways and raising up Christian leaders in Haiti.

| Pray for Denise and Juan Aragón empowering leaders emotionally and economically in Chiapas, Mexico

They both work in training, prevention and education as they learn the community needs and look for ways to emotionally and economically empower leaders in their communities.

| Pray for Ray Schellinger, Global Consultant for Immigrants and Refugees and for those who are in the Immigrant Caravan now arriving at the U.S. Border.

I came to hear their stories.
I have spent the last several days sitting, walking, playing, and crying with the members of the caravan. I have been struck by their willingness to just hang out with me and talk. They are hopeful, yet full of questions about what the future holds. They are anxious to get moving again, but at the same time, afraid to leave.
