Church of the Brethren's Global Mission and Service in action

"That is, in Christ God was reconciling the world to himself, not counting their trespasses against them, and entrusting the message of reconciliation to us. So we are ambassadors for Christ, since God is making his appeal through us; we entreat you on behalf of Christ, be reconciled to God.”
—2 Corinthians 5:19-20

Global Mission Prayer Guide
June 5, 2018

In the prayers for this week from Global Mission and Service Office, we lift up:


Pray for victims of Sunday's Mount Fuego eruption, which occured within 30 miles of Guatemala City. The volcano killed at least 65 people, and with many people still missing, authorities expect the death toll will increase. The eruption was especially deadly due to its release of a fast-moving mix of ash, rock, and volcanic gases.

May God comfort those who mourn. Pray for people suffering injuries and for the more than 3,000 people who have been evacuated.


Praise for Roxane Hill, coordinator of the Nigeria Crisis Response, and Carl Hill, pastor of Potsdam (Ohio) Church of the Brethren and former co-director of the Nigeria Crisis Response, as they continue their visit with response partners in Nigeria. The Hills have met with various leaders from Ekklesiyar Yan'uwa a Nigeria (EYN, the Church of the Brethren in Nigeria) to continue evaluation and planning of the recovery effort.
