Mission Prayer

This week we are praying for Compassion

Certain members of our church support four young people through the Christian child development charity Compassion UK. Two boys and two girls are based in Thailand, East Indonesia, Haiti, and Tanzania. The funding provides education, school books, and uniform, health care, and the support of a local church. A gift is given for their birthdays and this continues until they begin work or finish education at 22 years.
