CAMBODIA
Flash flooding throughout Cambodia has impacted ERDO’s sponsored children and their families. The cities are being hit the hardest, including Phnom Penh, where PAOC global workers Ian and Tiffanie Rowley, and many ChildCARE Plus families and staff live. Please pray for the end to this flooding. Pray for the safety of all the vulnerable people being affected by this flooding. Pray for the child sponsorship staff, working diligently to ensure all families are safe and have what they need during this time.  


WESTERN ONTARIO DISTRICT
The Western Ontario District’s 2020 Annual General Meeting is taking place this week via Zoom on October 21. Pray that the Spirit will speak to leaders’ and participants’ hearts about the next steps that the Western Ontario District will take. Pray that they will be unified and encouraged in their mission to make disciples wherever the Lord leads. Pray that God will provide wisdom and guidance as business and voting is conducted. Pray also for effective performance of all of the technology being used, and for participants to have a smooth experience as well.


BRITISH COLUMBIA & YUKON DISTRICT
Pray for everyone attending the “Echoes of God’s Heart” Virtual Native Summit which is being broadcast live from Terrace, B.C., on October 21. May they be equipped and empowered as they learn about prayer and discernment. Ask God to inspire and encourage them as they connect with one another online and with Him. May God use what they learn to help them grow, strengthen them and their families, and reach their communities for Christ.


WORLDWIDE
Pray continually for God to intervene in the spread of the COVID-19 virus, which has infected more than 40,114,290, and killed nearly 1,114,695 people around the world.1 Pray for healing for those infected, and comfort for those who have lost loved ones. Ask God to strengthen and protect frontline and essential workers and to grant peace to their families who are concerned for them. Pray that, as many countries begin to ease restrictions, their economies will respond well and new infections will be limited. Pray for extra protection for people in developing countries who are already malnourished and more vulnerable to this disease. Pray also for the hundreds of PAOC global workers who have remained in the country of their calling, serving their communities and displaying the love of Christ throughout this global pandemic.
