Southern Baptist Convention

David & Julie Yngsdal

SOUTH AFRICA

Today in our prayer time we are going to focus on Durban, South Africa, where our missionaries David and Julie Yngsdal serve. A while back these veteran missionaries were asked to move to Durban and work among the tens of thousands of refugees there. The refugees have come here out of desperation. They have fled war and violence in their home countries in other parts of Africa. Every one of the refugees has had horrible experiences getting to Durban and then surviving in a new land. Mariam and her three children fled their home country of Burundi after her husband was killed in the war. In Durban she and her kids nearly starved, surviving on rotten vegetables the kids found in garbage. An older daughter became a prostitute. But then David and Julie used funds from Southern Baptists to help them get an apartment and jobs to earn a living. Now they hold Bible studies in that apartment. For Mariam, life looks good. Our church supports David and Julie through our Cooperative Program giving. Let's pray for them. Let's pray that so many will be saved that the wars can end.
