We did it! Thank you for joining us this last week, fasting, and praying with us. I’m excited to see what God will do with our offering. If you missed it, no worries! You can fast at any time. I know for many of you, this was your first time fasting.

Many of you are praying and fasting with us. Thank you! Here I’ve updated the prayer requests that we posted during our 40-day prayer challenge earlier this year, as a guide for praying with us through this tough season.

Our fast continues till the 15th. You can still join us!

This new outreach is such a blessing. It’s like going back in time, to when we first met the villages that became our children’s church! Before they knew Jesus and were treated with love and kindness. Before they knew they had been created in the image of God and full of worth and dignity.

Last week, we asked for prayer for two of our little girls.

Rukku was taken from the village by a family member, but for unknown reasons. We’re praying for her safety, and protection and for her to be brought back soon. We have no update on this,

Here’s a recap of this week’s featured posts, in case you missed any:

We’re fasting one day between July 8th and July 15th. I posted an Intro to Fasting and Prayer on the blog for those who wrote saying they’d love to join but didn’t know how to begin.

Over the next week, we’re choosing one day to fast and pray together. We have all days in a week covered, and everyone gets to choose what day works with their schedules.

When I announced this plan, I got immediate replies of commitment. Thank you!

Pick a day between July 8th and July 15th

With Rukku taken, Esther burned, our beginning relationship with the new village, and the extreme need of all we serve during the pandemic, we need consistent prayer warriors to join with us. The warfare in this season is great and we need your help.

We’ve split up the weekend posts! You can see the other two posts here:

Two urgent prayer requests this week:

You’ll find this Week in Review broken up into three posts. I asked for suggestions last week since our outreaches are growing, and you overwhelmingly suggested multiple posts! As I can, I’ll break up the old posts as well, making it easier when new people learn about our outreaches. It will be easier to learn who Joel is and what happened with the snakes,
