Potter's House expansion: After 30 years of successful ministry transforming lives among the poor in Guatemala, Worldshare’s Potter’s House decided to expand its reach. At the end of 2016, Potter’s House developed a new ministry centre in the city of Chiquimula, 120 miles northeast of Guatemala City. This replicates the Guatemala City model by running holistic programmes to develop the communities and empower them to become self-sufficient. Since this expansion commenced, God has been moving in amazing ways and lives have been changed in Chiquimula. Reaching over 3,000 beneficiaries, the team has renovated classrooms, run children’s bible schools and supplied essentials to some of the most vulnerable families. Please pray that, with God’s guidance, the Potter’s House team can continue to serve many people in Chiquimula.
Christian student groups sharing faith: Students in Colombian universities face many challenges, but established University and College Union (UCU) Christian student groups in Armenia, Barranquilla, Cartagena, Bogotá and Popayán are sharing their faith. Pray also for pioneering groups in Ibagué, Cali and Pereira. Pray that student leaders would be equipped and manage their time well. Pray for Christian students to be bold in sharing the gospel, for non-believing students to be open to study God’s word, and for God’s help for students facing challenges like drug addiction and riots on campus.
Manchay Oasis Care Centre: Manchay Oasis Care Centre opened in 2003 to help poverty-stricken mothers of Manchay with their young children. Many of these mothers are not married, and while they often do their best to provide, malnourishment and neglect are rampant. Homes in this city are often one or two-roomed cardboard or tin shacks with dirt floors and no electricity, running water, or sanitation. The number of needy children continues to grow each year. Many children come to the preschool programme where they receive a meal each day and learn skills. Older children come before or after school and receive a meal and get help with their homework. Basic health services as well as counselling are offered for those who have been through traumatic experiences. Pray that God will bless the development of our therapeutic programmes, and that he will bless the relationships between children and counsellors, breaking down the walls and building trust.
Born to Love project brings children hope: Give thanks for the Born to Love project being run by the Chilean Bible Society to promote Christian and family values among children and teenagers. Pray, as these young people read God’s word together, that many lives will be changed as they meet with Jesus.
