Students in Chile: Praise God for the cohort of students who have recently completed “Euangelion”, a four-week evangelism training course run by GBU Chile. They have been looking at the Bible to understand the gospel and taking steps in the preparation of a 10-13 minute evangelistic talk. Pray for the students who will hear the gospel through these young people to have open hearts. (IFES - August 2021)
Sharing Jesus in Brazil: Daniel and Mariana Poquiviqui are indigenous missionaries sent by the Terena Church to work among the Xukuri kariri indigenous people, Northeast of Brazil.

Protection for children: Viva’s partner network in Paraguay is continuing to protect children from harm and abuse in spite of the challenges brought by rising Covid cases and social restrictions in recent months. Pray for the network of more than 300 churches and organisations as it provides training about positive discipline, the prevention of abuse and violence against children, and early pregnancy. Pray too as the network is actively working to change laws and policies. Through its advocacy efforts and relationships built, it is involved in influencing two regional and two national government policies to strengthen the protection system. (Viva - August 2021)
