Prayer and Praise ~ March 4th

 

Cameroon

  • Pray for the ongoing crisis in Cameroon, and also for Florence’s team of volunteers in Mbingo!
  • Praise God that the roads are open, and patients are able to come into the hospital. 
  • Florence is busy farming as well as training. Pray for protection for her and those that are at risk in the fields. The freedom-fighters have been responsible for some terrible atrocities. Last week there was a panic in Mbingo because the freedom-fighters went and drove away some Fulani from their homes, and took over their homes, and took some of their cattle. The Fulani then ganged up and come to burn homes in Mbingo, and many people fled to the hills. Florence and her husband didn’t hear the rumor and were unaware that people were running to the hills. Praise God some elders in Mbingo dialogued with the Fulanis to prevent the attack.
  • Stanley and Heston are two young evangelists that Florence is working with right now, for the next three Mondays they are going to evangelize at the hospital compound, Lord willing! They are waiting for official approval from the hospital. They asked for prayers for more grace from the Lord as they step into their ministries and callings, and for protection for their families!

  • People are confined to the center of the town in Maiduguri because of fear of attack. Thursday there was an attack with 5 soldiers and more civilians killed pray for peace!
