Prayer Updates — March 2020

Globally – #UnitedinPrayer

Pray for healing and protection for all!

As COVID-19 spreads across the globe, we as followers of Christ, have a responsibility to pray for all men, women, and children globally. We pray for healing, protection, and recovery for all our families, “our neighbors”, and the 7.8 billion people facing this with us. #UnitedInPrayer.
We pray for medical professionals on the front lines caring for the sick and responding to those in need. We pray for scientists tirelessly looking for answers. We pray for wisdom and guidance for all leaders — leaders in government and health sectors, public and private sectors, and faith leaders.
We pray for the economy and the many businesses forced to furlough or let go of employees and friends. We pray for who families living day-by-day. We pray for all peoples, in all places — and we trust God always. 

Exile Beneficiaries, Staff, & Care Programs

Pray health and safety for each child, staff member, and Exile host/foster families. Pray for continued wisdom and endurance. 

COVID-19 has reached the regions where Exile serves. That means the outbreak directly impacts the children you and Exile are deeply committed to serving. We are, though, grateful to report that no children or staff have contracted the virus, and we are implementing precautionary measures to prevent COVID-19. *For more about Exile’s COVID-19 Response Plan — click here.
Pray for the children as both school closures and limits on gatherings create significant challenges and safety issues for the children Exile serves. Simply “not gathering” does not change each child’s need for safety, housing, food/water, and other basic needs. To address this, our care teams have worked in coordination with Exile trained host families (similar to foster families) to find safe, temporary placement for each child. *Additional details here.
Praise God for our staff, care teams, and host families! Each is under added strain as they work tirelessly to adapt and provide for the needs of each child — physically, emotionally and spiritually. These outstanding men and women are on the frontlines fighting for the protection of these children. Let’s keep praying for daily renewed strength and resources for these staff.

Joseph – Exile Congo Program Director

Praise God for progress & continued prayers for full recovery.

As many of you know, in July 2019, 4 of Exile’s Congo team were ambushed by a rebel group, while in transit from some of our rural programs. In this attack, Joseph was shot 5 times — leaving him paralyzed from the waist down and fighting for his life. Yet… his faith and spiritual joy in the face of such adversity inspire us daily.
Just 6 months ago, doctors estimated he had a 4% chance of walking again. Yet today Joseph is able to walk short distances with the aid of a walker! And each day he is walking further than the last. Praise God! And many thanks to those who’ve been praying and those who are supporting his care.
Joseph’s return home has been delayed because of the spread of COVID-19 and mandatory lockdowns in South Africa (where he has been doing rehabilitation). Though Joseph is always wearing a smile, we know he must deeply miss his wife, children, family and friends back in Congo. And we know they miss him!
Please continue praying for Joseph and his family. Join us also in praying for continued, FULL healing, in Jesus’ name!
