Kenya, Kajiado Diocese: Please pray that there would be sufficient rains in order to alleviate the famine and drought, which has affected Kajiado for more than three seasons now. Pray that people would be sustained through this prolonged drought and in particular, that their cattle would stop dying. Please pray for the only real solution to this problem – rain.

Kenya, Kajiado Diocese, Ronnie and Maggie Briggs: Pray for Ronnie as he supports Jeremiah, the Project Manager at Maasai Rural Training Centre, at Isinya. This role brings with it responsibilities which require much wisdom in decision making. Pray for Ronnie and Jeremiah, as they seek to revive this Development Centre and steer it through economic hardships.

Kenya, Kajiado Diocese, Ronnie and Maggie Briggs: Pray for Maggie, as she heads up a project to extend the existing vegetable garden (shamba) at MRTC and introduce a greater variety of vegetables. This is made possible by using water from the centre’s borehole and drip irrigation. Pray that this will provide more income for the Centre and that the scheme can be used as a demonstration for local farmers.

Kenya, Urban Development Programme, Nairobi: Please pray for Kenya, as the country goes through a period of drought, famine and political uncertainty. Many people are starving or very hungry, and the recent rains have been insufficient.

Sudan, KajoKeji Diocese: Pray for staff and volunteers involved in new Diocesan ministries like the HIV/AIDS awareness programme, ‘Participatory Awakeners Process’ and the micro enterprise scheme.
