In Liberia, health workers’ boots and gloves dry after being cleaned with a powerful chlorine disinfectant—a much-needed resource that effectively kills the Ebola virus on contact. Operation Blessing teams continue to work around the clock to produce hundreds of gallons of this critical chlorine solution each day.

Iraq - A woman sits in a church function hall in Northern Iraq that now serves as a temporary home for her and more than sixty other families who fled their homes to escape persecution from Islamic militant group ISIS.

Take a moment to pray for families in Iraq and throughout the Middle East that have left everything behind to find safety from the violence and terror of ISIS. Pray they would have their needs met while in refugee and IDP camps and that they would be able to return home soon.

MARANAHAO, Brazil – Gabriela* (name changed to protect identity) was still a little girl when she ran away from home, escaping one form of abuse only to be caught up in another.

Struggling to survive on her own on the streets of Brazil, she accepted a job offer to work in the cocoa fields when she was just 12 years old—a job she hoped would provide her with food for her empty stomach and a safe place to sleep at night.

“I didn’t realize that it was another form of slavery, until I was trapped in it,” Gabriela said.

For three years, Gabriela worked long hours in the fields, often from 4 a.m. to 10 p.m., getting only a short break for lunch and earning just a few dollars a day.

Eventually Gabriela was brought to a safe shelter supported by Operation Blessing. There she has been able to recover from years of abuse and start thinking of her future. Today, she is working to finish her education—with hopes of one day helping others still trapped in the bondage of slavery.

“God has restored what was stolen from me,” she said. “Now, I want to give my life for those that are trapped in slavery around Brazil.”

Operation Blessing has been producing and distributing hundreds of gallons of chlorine solution each day to hospitals and rural communities in Liberia. Teams are now working around the clock to produce even more of the much-needed disinfectant that is used to wash hands, clean surfaces and stop the spread of Ebola.

Liberia - 16-year-old Michael lives in an orphanage in Liberia that, like most areas in West Africa, is at risk of Ebola. Supplies are running low as children and staff are prevented from leaving the grounds for fear of contracting the deadly virus.

Would you join us in praying for vulnerable children in Liberia and throughout West Africa? Pray they would receive the resources they need to stay healthy and strong.
