Uganda Day 2

daily prayer guide

Day 2: Sunday, July 28
Refugees are people who have been forced to flee their home and country due to the forces of war, rampant violence, failed states and persecution. The majority of refugees are women and children. The average time of displacement is 17 years.

While the grand scale of the present refugee crisis in the world can only be compared possibly to that caused by World War II, forced displacement is nothing new to the human story.

Adam and Eve were the first refugees. Following their sin in the Garden of Eden, God drove them out. They did not leave voluntarily, and they were not permitted to return. As their descendants, we have all been born far from our intended home.

“Adam named his wife Eve, because she would become the mother of all the living. The Lord God made garments of skin for Adam and his wife and clothed them. And the Lord God said, ‘The man has now become like one of us, knowing good and evil. He must not be allowed to reach out his hand and take also from the tree of life and eat, and live forever.’ So the Lord God banished him from the Garden of Eden to work the ground from which he had been taken. After he drove the man out, he placed on the east side of the Garden of Eden cherubim and a flaming sword flashing back and forth to guard the way to the tree of life.” (Genesis 3:20-24)

Pray for the team as they prepare and lead in various ways. They will have the opportunity to take part in biblical training, leadership training, job skills/finance training and soccer camp and work on a project within the camp and listen to people’s stories of what they have been through to get to Bidi Bidi.
