PRAY FOR THE NATION OF BANGLADESH #48 (on World Watch List)

In Bangladesh Christian converts come from a Muslim, Buddhist and Hindu background. They face the most pressure from family and community, as well as from Islamic extremist groups and religious leaders.

Right now they are also being overwhelmed with flooding and Dengue Fever. Our partner church in Bangladesh, with assistance from PAOC/ERDO are heavily engaged with the Rohingya refugees and are trying to provide as much assistance as possible.

Pray for the rains to stop and this deadly fever to be arrested.

A FUN PROJECT...SEEDS FOR CUBA!

Our Global Workers Bonita & Alberto are in Canada for Itineration till November. They will be at CPC in October.

They always gather various items for their work in Cuba that are hard to find or prohibitively expensive. They have begun a garden at their farm and would like to collect packets of vegetable seeds to take back and try!

Any varieties are great. They would like some to be climbers as they are going to try ‘vertical’ gardening as well as regular.

Would you see what you can find before seeds are gone from store shelves? There will be a container in the foyer to receive your ‘Gatherings’ THANKS!
