Matthew 25:35-40 (NIV)

35 For I was hungry and you gave me something to eat, I was thirsty and you gave me something to drink, I was a stranger and you invited me in, 36 I needed clothes and you clothed me, I was sick and you looked after me, I was in prison and you came to visit me.’

37 “Then the righteous will answer him, ‘Lord, when did we see you hungry and feed you, or thirsty and give you something to drink? 38 When did we see you a stranger and invite you in, or needing clothes and clothe you? 39 When did we see you sick or in prison and go to visit you?’

40 “The King will reply, ‘I tell you the truth, whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers of mine, you did for me.’

Purposeful Africa is excited about the opportunities that are becoming available to serve in many African countries during our journey. As we continue to pool resources and learn of new needs, we would like to share some information about how great the need is in many of the countries we will be visiting. As you know, one of the main goals for Purposeful Africa is to expose needs and engage in a multi-faceted level to positively impact God’s people in Africa.

Not only do we want to provide ways to take care of their needs in the present, but we are also concerned for their eternal needs too. Please join us as we begin to pray over these countries and the needs that exist there. Please pray that we will be effective in our medical, dental, and orphan care ministries. Pray for the ministries and organizations that are in place now–working there every day. Pray that when we arrive, we will be able to engage in the work they are doing and add value to it.
