– Pray for people in our community as they look for housing as the cold approaches. Pray for perseverance & courage as they seek to get off the street. Pray for those of us who are advocating and trying to help them as well.
Please pray for peace in Ethiopia and Eritrea. Habtemicael Beraki is one of our lead pastors (Philadelphia Eritrean Church) in the family of the Mennonite Brethren Church of Manitoba. Habtemicael has two brothers living in Mikele, the capital of Tigray in Ethiopia. All communication with his family has been cut off. Here’s some news on the matter. https://www.bbc.com/news/world-africa-55037162
From Pastor Habtemicael. “First of all I would like to say peace and grace for all brothers and sisters in Christ. I am writing this on behalf of all Ethiopians and Eritreans. Our countries are in a terrible war situation and our peoples are between life and death and now in the moment thousands are dying. So we need your urgent prayers.”
