Moment & Prayer 5 October 2020
The House of Hope, Casa de Esperança, is in a very poor neighbourhood of Recife, in Brazil. It started in 1998 as a pre-school nursery. It has grown and developed and reaches many children and their families with the love of Christ. Because of the ministry, the local Anglican church is growing. The Anglican Relief Development Fund US collaborates with the House of Hope and there is a building project going on building new classrooms to help meet the demand. The facilities are closed because of Covid-19 but the building project is nearly complete. The staff are very busy providing online teaching, visiting, and distributing food, love and care.
‘For we are God’s handiwork, created in Christ Jesus to do good works, which God prepared in advance for us to do.’ (Ephesians 2:10) Pray for the staff to have stamina and joy in doing good. Pray for the children and families in very difficult circumstances, to know God’s love.
Global Anglicans Moment & Prayer is an initiative for churches around the world so that each week they are kept up to date with news and a prayer item. Please share these in your church's bulletins and media announcements.
Throughout Gafcon churches worldwide we are looking to build up the faithful global Communion by sharing these bulletin updates in Gafcon churches' media announcements. We are seeking to have a Gafcon representative or advocate in each church who will be our point of contact for the Moment & Prayer items. If you are a church staff member and/or an active church member who is using the Moment & Prayer news then we would love to connect with you and email the weekly updates to you.
Please email [email protected] if you would like to find out more and be added to the group of Gafcon Church Representatives/Advocates.
We pray this is an encouragement to you.
