Prayers for Kenya/Tanzania

On August 16, 2023
Hello Friends,

I am writing this with such gratefulness since I know I have a great group of kingdom-minded people to pray and support Thrive Ministries. Without your help none of this could happen, so thank you.

I am off to East Africa soon, working with dear friends Yuriy and Olga Drozhzhin in Kenya and a team from Trinity Community Church in Tanzania. I want to ask specifically that you would pray for spiritual protection. These areas are known for the demonic oppression present there. We need to be covered and carried by the strength and grace of God. Thanks for covering the list below in prayer. In other news, after much work and collaboration with my publisher, a launch date has been set for my new book, Walking Through Grief: Finding Hope and Healing in the Psalms of Lament. I’m super excited to announce that the  book will be released on November 10!

Of course, there is much work to be done between now and then, so please pray for the final processes to go smoothly.

Also, please enjoy the blog below—a reflection on the privilege we have to work together with God on this earth.
