Praise God for the funding recently received for the ministry of JeanDavy, a new IFES Caribbean staff member supporting ministry in Francophone territories. These areas traditionally face more difficulties in ministry than those in English- or Dutch-speaking areas, with economic and migration challenges impacting movement sustainability or bans on religious groups meeting on campus making it harder for student and school groups to meet, study God’s word and share the gospel. Pray for Jean-Davy as he works with the movements in Haiti, Martinique, Guadeloupe, French Guiana and builds on previous pioneering work in St Martin.
