The team from Horizon Church in Surrey, Parkside Church in Mission, and Northgate Church in Courtenay, along with Father's Heart Mobility spent the last couple of days successfully assembling 170 wheelchairs just waiting to be given away Thursday and Friday here in Dokolo district Uganda. Today was the start of the big giveaway and the faces of those receiving say it all! Please be praying that word would get to all those in need. Pray that everyone needing mobility would receive and most of all as we work with the local pastors that MANY would come to salvation through the gift of mobility.
A team from Horizon Church in Surrey, Parkside Church in Mission, and Northgate Church in Courtenay has arrived in Uganda to partner with Father's Heart Mobility. They began their first work day with morning devotions before heading off to assemble 180 wheelchairs in two days. The team worked incredibly hard and was able to get half of the wheelchairs assembled. While the team is building, Father's Heart Mobility will be teaching approximately 30 local pastors raising awareness for people with disabilities.
Pray this team is effective and fruitful in their ministry there and pray for God's health and protection over them as they serve!
Foursquare Disaster Relief is monitoring "Barry". Barry is a slow moving tropical disturbance forecast to intensify and make landfall on Saturday. Hurricane watches are up along the Louisiana coasts with flash flooding and river flooding being major concerns.
Tracking shows the storm moving slowly north as a tropical depression over most of Arkansas where flooding has already occurred.
Let's begin praying together now about this situation. We believe in the Lord who calms storms and pray his peace over this situation. God we thank you for your protection over the people in areas along the US Gulf Coast. In Jesus mighty name. Amen.

Dear praying friends,
Riots are breaking out in Sri Lanka. An all Island curfew was declared earlier this week. First it was Easter Sunday bombing, then ethnic riots broke out between Sinhala mobs and Muslim people. Muslims are cowering for help and protection. Now it has turned out to be political unrest-probably opposition parties taking advantage of the situation to create confusion to destabilize the government. Muslim Shops and homes are being vandalized and set ablaze. Physical harm and casualties are quite possible. The government is asking churches and mosques to avoid holding services. Fear and confusion is spreading around all peoples nationwide. Christians and Muslims are living under threats everyday. Please alert people to pray for Sri Lanka.
There have been violent incidents in Chilaw and Kuliapitiya. A nationwide curfew has been imposed. Things are not good among communities and a great fear is hovering the nation. (1) Pray that peace and calm will be restored to the region. (2) Pray for government officials and law enforcement to have wisdom to prevent any further agitation or religious animosity among the island’s multifaith population. (3) Pray for the Church to be united in tragedy, and that such unity will be a witness to the nation of Sri Lanka.
Pray, “Prince of Peace, reign over Sri Lanka. Let fear, terrorism and violence be overthrown. Your kingdom come with justice, righteousness, salvation, healing and restoration over the nation. Jesus be enthroned and lifted up. Amen.”

Urgent prayer request: As of eight hours ago tropical cyclone "Fani" has been downgraded from an extremely severe cyclonic storm to a very severe cyclonic storm, and is now moving north along India's east coast. It's expected to hit Bangladesh soon, and the country has been conducting mass evacuations all day today. See more from Foursquare Disaster Relief below...
"Praying for India as a tropical cyclone heads towards this densely populated nation.
Please pray that the storm would subside, winds calm, and not make landfall. Pray for people to prepare and get out of harms way. Pray for relief efforts to have access to areas where people are in need. And pray that through this people would come to know the peace that only Jesus can provide."
