Missionary prayer focus - week of May 14, 2017

Songhai of West Africa

(SONG-high) - Missionaries Jody and Sarah Fox are feeling led to begin a clinic for malnourished children in one of the Songhai villages on which they are focusing. This clinic would involve assessing the health of children and, if found to be malnourished, providing them with a nutritional supplement. The supplement would be given over a set time period to boost the child's health and weight. In doing this, the Foxes hope to show the love of Christ through word and deed. Starting a clinic like this involves lots of paperwork and receiving permission from various governmental departments. Please lift up the Foxes as they begin this long journey to make this clinic a reality. Pray for the paperwork to be passed through quickly, and ask for favor with the government officials granting permission. Pray that many children will receive the care they desperately need to sustain their life and, because of this, have many opportunities to hear the gospel.
