Day 5
Jesus, please look at the children in Africa with Your eyes of compassion and love - and help the missionaries and teachers see them like You do. And raise up leaders from among them. Let the children see the hope and potential that is in them to change the world around them.For Your Glory.
I would also like to pray especially for those teachers, missionaries, and young leaders that I met in Swaziland:
The Adventures in Missions D-Team and missionaries that travel from carepoint to carepoint teaching the children about God, His love, and the plans He has for their lives. Whether its teaching them a scripture verse, dancing in joy, giving them a high nutrition drink, praying for them, or just goofing off...its all done out of love for God and love for these precious little ones.

The carepoint teachers who pour out their lives for their students...many of these children can not afford to go to a government or private school. The carepoint instructors teach not only the academic basics, but teach them about God and ensure that these children also have the chance to just be children, despite the sometimes horrific circumstances they live in, as they dance, play games, sing songs, and laugh.

Would you please consider joining with Children's Cup in their "40 Days of Prayer for the Children" by praying today?
