Ministering to Children in the Drug Zones

[300] prayers in [18] nations have been posted for Pastor Jorge.

A pastor in one of Colombia’s rebel-controlled rural areas is serving the children caught up in the drug trade. Jorge invites these children to an after-school music program, where they can avoid being on the streets or in the coca fields. Guerrillas in the area often use children to harvest coca plants or transport chemicals needed for processing coca leaves into cocaine. “They are so poor,” the pastor told a VOM worker, “so the child works and it is an opportunity for the family because he is making a little money.” Through the music program, the children are channeled in another direction — and hear about the love God has for them. Pray for the pastor who is serving the children in this area. Pray for the children to see there is hope in the world beyond the drug trade.

  • Father, bless Jorge as he reaches out; guide him, strengthen him. Evil surrounds these little children; the enemy wants to get his claws into them. The families need money to live, Father, without you the situation looks hopeless. Open the eyes of these children and their parents to the truth. Help them to know you will supply their needs. Make a way.
