Church of the Brethren
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

Pray for Christine and Josiah Ludwick and their children Rachel and Asher, as they travel to Rwanda this week.

Pray for blessings of safe travel, good health, and smooth transition. Pray for God’s wisdom and guidance as they seek ways to connect with the needs of their Rwandan community.

United States

Brethren Disaster Ministries (BDM) requests prayer for the continuing work of the Carolinas project, based in Lumberton, N.C., as volunteers rebuild homes damaged by Hurricane Matthew in October 2016. Homeowners, who have waited nearly two years for their homes to become safe, sanitary, and secure again, are very grateful for BDM's dedicated and cheerful weekly volunteers and long-term leaders. Pray for the safety of volunteers as they travel to and from the project site and as they work on the homes. Pray for the project leaders, who are crucial to the success of the rebuilding program.


Pray for the developing plans for the next EYN workcamp , when Nigerian Brethren will give their time to travel and rebuild an EYN church that has been destroyed by extremist violence.

The workcamp is scheduled for November 2-19; contact Kendra Harbeck ( for more information.
