Ministry Prayer Needs

Pray for the Work of our International Ministry Center in Myanmar
Director Mar Lay of our ministry center in Myanmar shared this note from a farmer named Ko Zaw Oo: "I am very glad whenever I receive your print materials. All the youth in my village enjoy your newsletters and take turns reading them when they come. Please pray for me to be able to see more clearly through my left eye; a farm accident caused me to lose the use of my right eye, and the vision in the remaining eye is not strong. I am sending you a donation of 5,000 Kyat [50 cents US] to help share the Good News. Thank you!" Please pray for Mr. Ko Zaw Oo and for the ongoing work of Lutheran Hour Ministries—Myanmar
