Just in case you have not heard, it’s Church in Action Week here at Walnut Hill!
We are a church that comes alongside 33 ministries both locally and across the globe each week of the year, but this week is a very special time where we get to highlight some of what we do all year.
One of our visiting Church in Action partners is Rev. Mark Munshi from Christian Service Society (CSS) in Bangladesh. Through the support of Church in Action, we have been able to come alongside CSS as one of our regularly supported ministries. Through a recent flood relief outreach, we aided those affected by the devastating floods that took place here in the states and in Bangladesh.
CSS is a non-government, non-profit, humanitarian development organization serving more than 26 million people in Bangladesh. It is one of the most renowned and oldest non-government organization in Bangladesh. CSS is dedicated to bringing change for the benefit of the poor, marginalized and unwanted people of Bangladesh. More recently, CSS has been called to come alongside the unwanted Rohingya refugees in Bangladesh. “The Rohingya Muslims are regularly referred to as among the world’s most persecuted people. They are not included on the list of 135 recognized national ethnic groups under Myanmar’s Citizenship Law and, while the ruling Myanmar government considers them Bengali, the Bangladesh government doesn’t recognize them as such.” (Nathan A. Thomspon, CNN)
In your First 20 today, please pray:
- For God to strengthen CSS
- For the love of Jesus to shine brightly as CSS serves the Rohingya refugees, unwanted, poor and marginalized
- For Rev. Mark Munshi to be blessed and encouraged by his time with Walnut Hill this week
- For Church in Action this week and all our visiting missionaries/ministries to be lifted up in our love and support
Thank you for your prayers and for being a Church in Action.
Our God hears,
