  • Appreciate God for the campers who made use of our camp site during August. Ask Him for a fruitful leadership camp 9-12 September.
  • Glorify Jesus for His prayer, financial and material provision to YfC Zim. Stand with us in prayer for more volunteers with the right passion and heart.
  • Bless the Lord for a good time with the regional director and the board and staff training he did. Trust our Provider for enough resources and finances to do our work properly.
  • Honour the Father for a wonderful outreach to Eastview High School. Pray that our ministry happening in all the centres will have a positive influence on young people.

Thank you for faithfully praying with us. We appreciate your involvement very much. Through your prayers you are an effective worker in His harvest field.
