Pray for Trauma Healing equipping sessions in the Middle East with leaders from the Bible Societies of Lebanon, Iraq, Syria and Jordan. As refugees stream in to escape violence and war, please pray that the American Bible Society trauma healing team will be able to train the 50 local leaders and facilitators to use the restorative Scripture narrative to minister to the wounded of soul and spirit.

May God grant mercy in these difficult circumstances and may God grant them the peace and healing they so desperately need.

Pray for Sylvain

Sylvain NDJENDOLE, General Secretary, Bible Society in Central Africa Republic has been bed-ridden for the past one month. Due to a low blood count, Sylvain is very weak and can hardly stand nor walk. Doctors in Central Africa Republic are unable to determine the cause of his illness and have recommended that he urgently travels to France for diagnosis and treatment. Sylvain is a champion of the Bible and an advocate for trauma healing in his country. He suffered a great deal during the civil war and survived several assassination attempts. Bible Society offices were looted 10 times over the past 2-years. Regardless of these difficulties, Sylvain continues to dedicate his life to the Bible cause in his country and in Africa. Pray that God will provide Sylvain with healing and strength to recover from his illness.
