A middle-aged woman with her arm around a young boy. Both smile at the camera."Peace I leave with you; my peace I give you. I do not give to you as the world gives. Do not let your hearts be troubled and do not be afraid." (John 14:27)

In this turbulent world, fear is very common and equally understandable. There is so much which could make us uneasy, worried or frightened. Jesus knows this. So, when he promises to leave his peace with his followers - (with us!) - it is not a matter of empty words. He gives us a deep, meaningful, lasting peace that comes from knowing his Spirit is with us, that he guides and protects us, and that he hears our prayers. So, whatever life throws at us or at the children we serve, we know there is no reason to be afraid. As we pray, we receive Jesus' peace.

Latest prayer points

Please remember BCT and our partners within your personal prayer times or your regular prayer group. Below are some fresh points for prayer:

  • In the last quarter, 165 children have received physiotherapy (which their parents can continue at home) and 34 have been enabled to access vital medical treatment, through Wukwashi's support groups. Praise God! Pray that recent physiotherapy training for 23 new volunteers and eight existing ones will help improve even further the care and support families receive.
  • We’re excited about recent progress SCWA has been making in Calabar, southern Nigeria. The local team we trained last August went on to train 30 pastors in September and have continued to support church leaders in addressing witchcraft accusations against
    children. Let’s thank God that the training continues: the team held a refresher workshop for pastors this March. And please pray that God will keep the passion for change burning in these leaders’ hearts so they can inspire and equip their communities to tackle this abuse.
  • Pray for new connections to enable us to disseminate our Transformation Resources through networks, and that this will result in an ever-greater impact for the kingdom of God and for his glory. Please stand with us in asking God to move powerfully through our ‘Let’s Grow!’ resource which three church denominations in Nyamata have recently started using with their congregations, to address the problem of hunger.
