BMS World Mission

Please join us this week as we pray for the nation of Chad.

  • Please pray for continued wisdom and skill for BMS worker Kalbassou Doubassou as he works through the long list for surgery and leads Guinebor II Hospital (G2). Please continue to pray for another surgeon to join the team.
  • Please pray for Claire Bedford, managing the pharmacy at G2, as she increasingly finds medicines expensive and hard to source. Pray for medicines to be made more easily accessible.
  • Please pray for Andrea and Mark Hotchkin’s safety and well-being as they deliver medical services in a government hospital in Bardaï, one of the most fragile and remote areas of the world.
