So when God desired to show more convincingly to the heirs of the promise the unchangeable character of his purpose, he guaranteed it with an oath, so that by two unchangeable things, in which it is impossible for God to lie, we who have fled for refuge might have strong encouragement to hold fast to the hope set before us. We have this as a sure and steadfast anchor of the soul, a hope that enters into the inner place behind the curtain, where Jesus has gone as a forerunner on our behalf, having become a high priest forever after the order of Melchizedek.
Hebrews 6: 17-20
The New Year is in full swing and we are so excited for all God will do in and through Seed Effect this year. Our Director of Programs, Joel Cox, is about to head to Northern Uganda. We’re excited to be gearing up to launch our Savings Led programs to serve our South Sudanese clients as they seek refuge in Uganda. Will you please pray with us for…
HEALING : We just got news that our driver Chaplain’s sister passed away. We are heartbroken for him. She leaves behind her children and her husband is unable to care for them, therefore the family has asked Chaplain to take the kids in. Please pray with us for Chaplain’s family, his sister’s children and for healing and provision. We know God is near the brokenhearted.
PROTECTION : As Joel heads to Uganda January 23rd through February 4th, we are asking for safety and that God’s presence would be very near. There is a lot of work to be done, so we’re praying that God would allow Joel to be productive and achieve what is needed during his trip.
FAVOR : over the registration process in Uganda – we are working tirelessly to register our organization for operations within the refugee camps in Uganda. Please pray that this goes as smoothly and quickly as possible. The faster we’re registered, the sooner we’ll be serving South Sudanese refugees!
SAFETY : Some of the families of our employees are displaced because of the conflict. We are praying, continually, that the conflict would end and families can reunite.
HEALTH : For our South Sudanese teams and their families.
DISCERNMENT : and grace for our leadership teams in South Sudan + the US.
PEACE : We continue to pray and ask boldly this month for the peace of Christ to rule in South Sudan and the US. God is indeed the steadfast anchor of the soul and our hope.
HOPE : For all of our Seed Effect clients : loan + savings group members. That they would find hope in the midst of a continually difficult economy and remember that God is near.
PRAISE : In 2016 we raised over $725,000 to empower more than 1,100 South Sudanese.
Thank you for partnering alongside us in prayer!
