An Urgent Prayer Request
Global Bag Project : African Bags Word has come from Mary Ogalo, the Global Bag Project Kenya Coordinator, that Hannah's home in Nairobi has been robbed. We wrote about Hannah in our last Global Bag Project e-newsletter. Mary writes:

This week has been difficult...Hannah's house was raided by some thugs, but we are thankful because God spared them from physical harm. Hannah was slightly injured on the cheek with a blunt object, but we know it could have been worse if the Lord was not with them. In cases like that sometimes thugs rape after stealing. Hannah and the daughters were spared from that. They are quite terrified. I will be meeting her tomorrow.

When I heard that Hannah had suffered loss at the hands of these thieves, I went to sleep with the strong impression that we needed to pray for angelic protection for the vulnerable Global Bag Project women who are struggling to support their families and lift themselves out of poverty.

Will you pray with us? This prayer from Psalm 91:13 is a good prayer guide:
For he will command his angels concerning you to guard you in all your ways. On their hands they will bear you up, so that you will not dash your foot against a stone. You will tread on the lion and the adder, the young lion and the serpent you will trample under foot.

I see angels posted at the doors of all the homes of the African women we love and admire. I see their flaming swords warding off the thugs and thieves and robbers who would prey on these vulnerable and unprotected women (and their small children). I see prayers from the shores of North America holding up those who are our sisters across the world.
