Specific Prayer needs

 

Reuniting...

 

  • Mr S and his wife. We ask for doors to be opened so that he and his wife will be able to be reunited with his children and grandchildren. Mr S has been in Jordan for many years and we ask that the agencies involved in his case will give him a fair hearing. Mr S and his wife have struggled over the years here, they have very little, their dwelling is small and during the winter it gets very cold.

 

 

Resettlement...

 

  • Mrs N and her children. Mrs N escaped from Syria with her five children, she doesn't know what has happened to her husband and is seeking to resettle in the USA.

 

 

  • Mr A and his family. Mr A was granted resettlement from Iraq but at the last minute there was a complication. He then had to flee Iraq and is now waiting for security clearance. His children have struggled to fit in the local schools and now do not attend.

 

 

Educational initiatives...

 

  • We are looking at how we can support families with an education programme so that children such as those of Mr A's will get some access to learning.
