Tanzania
Making PPE in Tanzania: Neema Crafts, pioneered and led by Church Mission Society mission partners in Iringa, Tanzania, has joined the worldwide fight against Covid-19 by halting production of their normal popular craft items to focus on manufacturing PPE to equip the country’s hospitals, medical centres and key frontline workers. Staffed exclusively by men and women with disabilities including deaf and physically disabled people, the Neema Crafts Centre officially closed its cafe and halted production in its workshops at the beginning of April and set to work doing what they can to protect the lives of frontline workers. Pray for the Neema team as they produce 800 masks, 120 face shields and 50 gowns per week from the safety of their own homes.   (Church Mission Society - July 2020)
Medical staff on the frontline
Medical staff on the frontline: Please pray for Christian medical and nursing staff who are on the frontline of the global Covid-19 pandemic. Pray they have the opportunity not only to meet physical and mental health needs but to share of the love of Christ with people who are scared, vulnerable and sick.  (Christian Medical Fellowship - July 2020)

Galeed House volunteers: Galeed House volunteers have the privilege of building friendships with adults and children from many nations who have settled in Sheffield, UK. Pakistani, Bangladeshi, Somalian, Eritrean, Slovakian-Roma to name a few. The regulars find some of their social, educational and spiritual needs are being met. For example, one of our volunteers has maintained daily contact by phone with an elderly and lonely widow from Pakistan who is desperately lonely in lockdown. Activities have been severely limited by the Covid-19 pandemic. But some contact is maintained through WhatsApp groups, visiting from the street side, and craft activities and postcards sent to the children. Ask God to keep opening the hearts of those who have experienced the love and truth of Jesus through Galeed House volunteers.  (DATIC Trust (Galeed House) - July 2020)

Final year students in UK: Pray for final-year students who face the disappointment of having no graduation or exams, and now look for jobs in an uncertain climate. Pray that they’re reminded of the sovereignty of the Lord. Pray also for the many students who are young in faith, haven’t yet found a church and have returned to unbelieving homes. Let’s pray that they quickly grow in their love of God and can connect with other believers. (UCCF - July 2020)
