Your Prayers Mean the World, Thank You For Praying
Each and every day I continue to be amazed by two things here at International Needs: first, the incredible impact our partners worldwide are making and second, the faithfulness and generosity of you, our supporters, here in the United States.
I’ve also learned that what makes it all work is a strong healthy base of prayer support. In this newsletter I wanted to bring a few praise and prayer items to your attention and invite you to celebrate the praises with us and join with us in prayer for our partners around the world. Thank you for engaging with us as we work together to share the hope of Jesus Christ throughout the world.
