Children’s Prayer Club: Guinea-Bissau

Author: Hannah

From the children:

Every week we learn about a different culture or people group needing prayer. We study their situation and pray for them throughout the week.

Please join us in prayer for the people of Guinea-Bissau.

Baptism in Guinea-Bissau

The country:

Guinea-Bissau is a tiny little country in West Africa and is one of the poorest countries in the world. It is only 14,000 sq miles with a population of 1,179,000. They grow peanuts, cotton, and cashews.

Their faith:

In 1998 the army rebelled against the government and war broke out. Many people had to leave Guinea-Bissau. Christians took in the people of Guinea-Bissau and many of the refugees became Christians. Christians are now translating the Bible into the languages of Guinea-Bissau.

Please pray:

Hannah prays that the people of Guinea-Bissau will continue to trust in Jesus and will tell their friends about him and that the leaders of the country will rule wisely. Marissa prays that Missionaries will be sent to Guinea-Bissau and that Christian people will tell others about Jesus. Elisabeth prays that the Guinea-Bissau learn to read. Emily prays that the Guinea-Bissau people who aren’t Christians will learn about Jesus. Elijah asks that God will please give the children more Bibles.

Thank you,

Hannah, Marissa, Elisabeth, Emily, and Elijah Bagasao

I Timothy 2: 1, 3: I urge then, first of all, that requests, prayers, intercession, and thanksgiving be made for everyone. This is good and pleases God our Savior, who wants all men to be saved and to come to a knowledge of the truth.

Flatter me not!

Always honest!

Always honest!

In an ongoing effort to train our children in godly honesty, I dove this week into the topic of false flattery versus worthy compliments. Using real-life examples, I showed my ladies how meaningful a compliment is when it is spoken in truth, but how empty and dishonest flattery is in contrast.

“He who rebukes a man will in the end gain more favor than he who has a flattering tongue.” ~Proverbs 28:23

At the same time, I tackled the issue of building each other up. I explained how constant negativity and harsh words can harm others, but how words of encouragement and honest praise are a blessing to the recipient.

“A word aptly spoken is like apples of gold in settings of silver.” ~Proverbs 25:11

I encouraged them to guard their tongues, choose their words carefully, and refrain from false flattery. I called on them to make an extra effort to look for opportunities to build each other up.

Words from Mother often lose their potency en route to young brains, and I wondered what effect if any would come of it. Any conscientious parent thrills to see a bit of maturity and compassion in her children. Would they prove to have listened and taken the lesson to heart?

You decide. Read the rest of this entry »

Bagasao Children’s Prayer Club: Falashas

From the Bagasao Children:

Every week we learn about a different country or group of people needing prayer. We study their situation and then pray for them throughout the week.

Please join us in prayer for the Falashas.

fasiledesThe Falashas are black Jews in Ethiopia. The Falashas had a hard life in Ethiopia. For a long time they could not eat because there was not enough rain for their crops, and nobody there had invented a Wal-Mart. After the Communists took over Ethiopia, they had even more trouble. Markets were only open on Saturdays, which was the Jewish Sabbath. Many people had to move from the country to Addis Ababa, the the capitol city. Read the rest of this entry »

Bagasao Children’s Prayer Club: Ethiopia

From the Bagasao Children:

Every week we learn about a different country or group of people needing prayer. We study their situation and then pray for them throughout the week.

Please join us in prayer for the Ethiopians.

Ethiopia is in eastern Africa. The people in Ethiopia are very, very poor. They have droughts and famines which cause starvation. There are a lot of annoying flies, and the people don’t have houses like ours, so they cannot keep the flies out. Very few children go to school. There was a civil war and many Ethiopians left the country. At the same time, refugees from Sudan and Somalia came to Ethiopia while trying to escape their own wars, but their lives did not get any better. The population of people in Ethiopia is 62,564,875, which is a lot of people. Read the rest of this entry »

Bagasao Children’s Prayer Club: Egypt

From the Bagasao Children:

Every week we learn about a different country or group of people needing prayer. We study their situation and then pray for them throughout the week.

Please join us in prayer for the Egyptians:

The Prayer Club

The Prayer Club

Egypt is in northeastern Africa. It has a population of 68,469,695 people.  The capitol is Cairo, the largest city in Africa and the Middle East.  It has a lot of people.  There are a lot of poor people in Cairo who live in the slums, some in an area called Garbage City.  It is full of garbage which the people collect to sort and sell to recycling places; that’s how they get a little bit of money.  Although there are a lot of poor people, there are also a lot of millionaires.  It is probably because their chief export is oil.  Desert covers 96% of Egypt.

Acts 2 in the Bible tells us that Egyptians were among those in Jerusalem who learned about Jesus from Simon Peter and the other apostles at Pentecost.  (Finally Peter’s loud mouth came in handy!)  Read the rest of this entry »
