Please join us in prayer for the city of Goma in the Democratic Republic of Congo. Following a volcano eruption and earthquakes earlier this week, Baptists in the area report:

  • 20,000 people have been affected
  • 5,000 homes destroyed
  • 11 schools destroyed
  • 6 health centers destroyed
  • 7 church buildings destroyed

Would you pray for the city, for the practical needs to be met, for the churches as they gather this weekend, for the many whose massive loss leaves them wondering what to do next, and for the Baptist community as they respond with Christ's love?
Thank you to everyone who participated in the first BWA Global Impact Month! It was a blessing to be able to share with you each week about how the Lord is at work through our global Baptist family and to highlight resources designed to help you impact the world for Christ. We still have one more incredible resource to share, so keep an eye on your inbox tomorrow to learn more about the BWA's Holistic Mission Guide.

If you did not have an opportunity to participate in Global Impact Month during the month of May, it's not too late. We have created a wide variety of resources that can be utilized throughout the year. Click the button below to find out more.
Prayer

We sincerely thank you, O God,
for your powerful gift of hope
in the face of seemingly hopeless situations.
We thank you for your peace
in the hearts and minds of men and women
in this part of Africa
who believe you are the living God,
quick to save in time of danger.
You reign above all,
directing the course and destiny of the universe.

(Joao Makondekwa, Bible Society of Angola. WAGP p. 337)
