In your prayers James and Linda have suggested you ask that
- · God continue to bless and guide the work in climate change adaptation.
- · God would keep watch on Linda’s mother who is quite frail, her father and neighbours who are vulnerable being tribal and Christian minority particularly after the violence they suffered last year.
- · The love of God would touch the hearts of the men, women and children they are working with and that they would be effective in their activities to uplift them.
