Lychee City’s Refugee Camp

  • Pray for the spiritual life of brothers and sisters in Lychee City.

Everyday they face all kinds of small details including the safety of their children (sometimes they even have to face robbers or fierce wild animals); may the Lord keep them to keep spiritually healthy and strong in their faith. Pray that the civil war and the pandemic end quickly.
