A Light in Zimbabwe

If you have been following the news, you might have read about the continued collapse of Zimbabwe. The situation is incredibly bleak for a country that is literally starving. There is little food on the shelves, inflation is the highest in the world, and many have turned to prostitution in order to feed their children.

Allen and Janelle left yesterday for Bulawayo. Here's what she wrote in her orphan blog.

"This is going to be a very exciting time for our Themba children (this is our orphan program that helps support many of these children in hardship). From among the members of the River Glen Presbyterian Church of Naperville, Illinois, 60 children are sponsored and prayed for regularly! And next week, this church is sending out a group of 9 people to visit the homes of different children and to hold a weekend camp for 50 of our children. Lots of Bible lessons, stories, songs, and games are planned for the children. It promises to be an wonderful and exciting week for all of us!!

Thank God for this gracious church that has taken these children into their hearts and are working out that love in very tangible ways!"


1. Thank God for the love within the River Glen church for the children of Zimbabwe.

2. Ask God for safety and to bless their trip over and all the travel that will be involved.

3. Pray for safety and protection as we travel within this troubled country.

4. Pray for JOY to fill the hearts of the children, and to fill our hearts as we minister and are ministered to by the Lord.
