Prayer for Monday 2nd June 2014

Today, from our church family, we pray for Peter Mackenzie.

Our charity for June is the Ifakara Bakery Project.  This charity was set up in Tanzania in 2001 by Margaret and Eugene Schellenberg in co-operation with the Sisters of St. Francis in Ithaka.  The sisters wanted to provide free bread to the needy local population.  The Schellenbergs raised the necessary funds to equip and build the bakery.  The bakery now produces between 400-900 loaves of bread each day, providing local employment and improving the lives of so many.  Heavenly Father, we pray that the donation St. Martin’s has made to this wonderful project will contribute to the vital work they seek to do, feeding the poorest people in their community. Lord in your mercy, hear our prayer.
