Pray for Carla as She Returns to Church

[372] prayers in [24] nations have been posted for Carla.

A young girl in southern Mexico has recently returned to church, after being forbidden from attending last year by her Zapatista parents. At the end of October, Carla visited her Christian grandparents and was able to return to the church where she accepted Christ. She was nervous about returning and feared that she might be shunned for failing to attend the Christian children’s group. Zapatistas, such as her parents, often shun community members who do not participate in meetings. Pray that Carla and her grandparents will remain faithful despite pressure from Carla’s parents and other members of the Zapatista community. Pray also for Christians who continue to reach out to children and others in the Zapatista community.
