Edited to add link … Grace growing at city dump … the story of a church working among the poorest in society
Guatemala is a beautiful country in Central America that has a terrible underside. It has the highest murder rate in the continent, huge problems with gangs and drug trafficking, and high levels of illiteracy, infant mortality and malnutrition. A brutal guerrilla war which lasted for 36 years ended in 1996 but few have ever been held to account for the atrocities. Pray for the light and hope of the gospel to shine in this country this Christmas.
PRAYER POINTS (Prayercast)
• Pray for the church to commit herself to true discipleship rooted in the truths of the Bible.
• Pray for a rapid decline in violence and an alarmingly high murder rate.
• Pray for compassion to be lavished on numbers of children at risk in the streets of Guatemala.
