Kenya – Kajiado Diocese, Ronnie and Maggie Briggs: Pray for rain – in season and out of season – as the whole Diocese is currently suffering from a lack of rain. This makes it even more difficult for the Clergy – as they move around and are confronted by so many suffering people with so few resources available. Pray for wisdom for the Clergy and their families that they may be encouraged in all they do.

Uganda – Diocese of Luwero, Kiwoko Hospital, Rory Wilson: Asiimwe Rodgers heads up the personnel department at the hospital.
