14 Jul U COUNT JULY 2016 PRAYER NOTES
Praise and Prayer
You, my brothers and sisters, were called to be free. But do not use your freedom to indulge the flesh; rather, serve one another humbly in love. For the entire law is fulfilled in keeping this one command: “Love your neighbor as yourself.”
Thank you U COUNT Campaign volunteers for loving your global neighbors so well. Happy July 4 and may we be grateful for our freedom to serve God and others!
From our partner in Kolkata, India:

Prayer Requests from Sarah Miles
Anti-trafficking Missionary to Uganda
For the Center – For all the volunteers we have from both America and local supporters – that they know how important they are to the work we do, and that their part is so important in the journey of these ladies.
For the sewing project – Our tailor left and we were able to hire another one, may she be called, encouraged and led to teach this class. For what comes next for the girls who are in the class, with jobs, internships and for Rahab to have a sustainable business to employ some of these ladies.
For the night outreaches – Cover our social worker as he reaches out to the girls in the local bars and brothels. For the hearts of girls to see that this is not just another project but a transformation to leave the trade. Help us to be intentional and journey with each girl individually and have the capacity to do it.
For the Home – We are growing by leaps and bounds and seriously need funding to grow. We need programs for when the girls are on holiday and we need a 2nd house mom while they are home, we also need to support 26 girls in school fees, clothing, health, and food.
For Rahab – For our amazing staff, trustees and board members. As we just celebrated 10 years of work, let them see the next 20, one step at a time, that they continue to fill the gaps with such need, and we see the fruit of Jesus through this amazing group.
I need a foster family for my cat Pearl while I am back in the States. Pray for the right person to watch her.
I am in need of someone to format my prayer cards and things so I have fundraising materials while I am home. Or for the program so that I can do it and be effective in the social media and awareness of updating supporters.
For the gentlemen that is filming Serena’s story and the video for fundraising that it will all come together and be a way to show the work that I do in the ministry.
For opportunity to share what I am doing and to raise the support I need in order to return and do the work for the next 2 years. Pray for full monthly support to be met for me personally and for the ministry and people to present to and share what I am doing.
For continued health. I am still struggling with being tired and low energy. And for grace to take things slow and not over extend myself.
Praises! My insurance has submitted the claim for my surgery – they have all the documents and even the originals were able to make it back to the states. Now we just wait for the final yes and payment reimbursement. I also was able to raise the support needed to pay for the travel that was not included.
I will be packing up my house before I come back to the US to save money and not pay rent while I am gone. Friends have offered to house some of my things so several families are chipping in. When I return I will be moving from the side of town I am at because there is no community this side and I am so far from work that driving each day is getting to be very overwhelming. This is a prayer answered!
