Here are some ways you can pray for our ministry and the people we serve right now.
Prayer Requests from Around the World
Please pray for travel safety. In February, a 32-yard stretch of the main road between the capital Kathmandu and our partner, Lalgadh Leprosy Hospital, fell into the river. This is the quickest route for travel and it will be some time before it is passable again.
It is easy to worry about the things we see and hear of in the world around us and to feel that it is somehow out of God’s control. And yet the world was created through and for the Lord Jesus. Even though we may be perplexed, we are told that he will restore things and we must trust him, and live each day for him, being salt and light, as he gives opportunity. Pray for our brothers and sisters in Nepal that they can be salt and light in the difficult environment that they live and work in.
A recent research training led by Dr. Paul Saunderson (American Leprosy Missions’ Medical/Research Director) and funded by the Leprosy Research Initiative has stimulated considerable interest in leprosy research across Africa. Participants included people from Sierra Leone, Cameroon, Uganda and Mozambique. Pray that this interest will bear fruit and that this initiative will serve as a good basis for further capacity building in research in Africa.
Democratic Republic of the Congo
Praise God for the initial preparations underway to begin disease mapping and piloting integrated interventions for case management of Neglected Tropical Diseases, including leprosy, in one district. This project is one of many being launched by the AIM (Accelerating Integrated Management) Initiative, an innovative disease mapping and management initiative founded by American Leprosy Missions. Please also continue to pray for peace and a positive resolution to the political unrest.
