A Nepali church planter travels by bus and then by foot for many hours to reach the village where she now lives. A long way from her home town, she obeyed God when He spoke to her about reaching out to villages where no one has yet heard about Jesus. Initially treated with suspicion as an outsider, she gradually won people’s hearts through her commitment to education programs for children and farming projects for the community. A church is now growing. Pray that God will continue to soften the hearts of many in Nepal to the Gospel of Jesus Christ (The Bible, Isaiah 40:9).

Heart disease and high blood pressure continue to be on the rise in the UAE, according to the results of a 2019 wellness survey. In the UAE it covered a diverse group of 507 representatives of the population. The results revealed several key health indicators about stress and its importance in the workplace. Presenting the results of the survey, Jerome Droesch, CEO of Cigna, said: “The survey was based on five parameters of wellness — physical, social, family, financial and workplace health.” The results were more like Key Performance Indicators that the community could use to create greater awareness and help companies adopt Work Place Wellness Programs. Pray that the weary people will come to Christ for rest. Pray that the wellness program will be a boon to the people with health issues (The Bible, Exodus 33:14).
