Abuse, Food Insecurity, and Other Effects of Covid-19 & No Rain
Agnes, the Regional Program Manager (RPM) in the Mbooni region asks for our prayers: “Please pray for our women. The situation is becoming worse. Most of them are beaten by their husbands and chased away. The reason is because they have many children, and right now, the husband is jobless."
"Please, please let’s all pray and God will see us through.” Also pray for group members to meet their financial targets for 2020 and for rain!"
Also, Regina Mbaluku, the RPM of the Malili region shared: “The challenges in our gardens is that the crops dried up due to lack of rain so many members don’t have food. They’re not selling their income generating products well, they’re selling only a small amount. There is no casual work which uplifts the women in making their targets.”
"I also visited some orphan children near my home, who stay with their grandparents (5 of them). They had no food. I bought them flour, rice, oil, soap, and beans which cost me 4,000 Ksh (($40) and for a sick woman bought her soap and porridge flour."
"Let us keep on praying for one another so we don’t get that dangerous disease.”
Girls Not in School At Greater Risk
Schools have been closed since March in Kenya due to Covid-19, so the students who are usually in boarding school are at home in their villages.
Pray for the school girls, especially in the rural areas, who are at home having to walk to collect water, and are now at higher risk for attack and teenage pregnancies.

Continue to pray for Gloria's Release from Prison in Saudi Arabia
Please continue to pray for Gloria, daughter of Elizabeth (RPM from the Kola region) who went to Saudi Arabia to work as a nanny and housekeeper, then was imprisoned there for unknown reasons.
Thank God that Elizabeth has been in regular contact with her, and although Gloria is still not home, Elizabeth is sure she is safe.
We also thank God that a Kenyan lawyer from Nairobi (who has helped the RPM’s before) is working on Gloria’s release and return. Please continue to pray that those efforts will be successful and that she will be safely returned home as soon as possible.
Continue to Pray for Complete healing for Sumpton (Kenya Work Team driver)
Please continue to pray for Sumpton's restored health, our excellent faithful Kenyan driver who takes such good care of the PFP work team every time they go to Kenya.
An injury to his left shoulder caused a pulled muscle, which caused nerve damage. He had little use of his left hand and shoulder, has been seeing a neurologist, is on medication, and going to P.T.
Pray for his complete healing and also for his financial situation during this time of Covid-19 as P.T. is very expensive and his livelihood depends on tourism, which is being affected by the pandemic.
