Worldwide Child Development Centers

We give praise that:

  • More than 19,640 children gained education, nutrition, life skills, and spiritual formation through 156 Nazarene child development centers (CDC) in 36 countries worldwide.
  • Churches started new CDCs throughout Africa, South America, and Eurasia.
  • Almost 12,000 children received support through Nazarene Compassionate Ministries' Child Sponsorship program.
  • In addition, 7 leadership scholarships were awarded so that students from the child sponsorship program could study at the university level.

With 19,640 children being served through Nazarene CDCs, a conservative estimate is that local churches are investing more than 13 Million hours each year in the lives of children!

Lord, thank you for your faithfulness and for a church that generously gives to Nazarene Child Sponsorship!

Lisa’s Mother
  Missionary Lisa Lehman asks, “Please join me in prayer for my mom. She has been recovering slowly from medical procedures. Last week, she began having intense abdominal pain that hasn’t responded to medication. Mom is now hospitalized and doctors are trying to determine the cause of her pain and a course of treatment.” Lisa serves in Thailand.
Don Walker-UPDATE
  Retired missionary Don Walker had successful spine surgery on November 19. However, soon after he developed pneumonia and then had a heart attack. Don was to undergo a procedure on November 23 to determine what caused the attack. Please keep praying for Don. He and his wife, Mary Lou, served in Kenya, Zimbabwe, Zambia, and Papua New Guinea.
Marion Rich-UPDATE
  We continue to pray for former missionary Marion Rich who was in a serious car accident on September 29. Marion was moved to a skilled nursing facility recently but landed back in the hospital in ICU with an infection last week. She recovered from the infection and is now at a long-term acute care hospital in downtown Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. This is an hour’s drive for her husband, Harry. Please pray for his encouragement and safety as he makes daily trips to see his wife. Please continue to pray for Marion’s complete recovery. She and Harry served in Haiti and Rwanda. They are also the parents of missionary Dwight Rich who serves in Ecuador.
Family of Don Fothergill
  Missionary Gavin Fothergill's father, Don, passed away on November 18 after a brief battle with cancer. Gavin, and his family, had made it back to the USA from the Democratic Republic of Congo to be with his dad after they learned just a few weeks ago about the cancer diagnosis. Pray for the Fothergill family as they deal with Don's quick passing.
Hudson Father
  The father of missionary Tamara Hudson passed away recently. Please be in prayer for Tamara and her family. She serves with her husband, Michael, and family in Romania.
Family of Rosa Ainscough
  Our prayers go out to the family of Dr. Rosa Ainscough who passed away on November 22. Rosa struggled against cancer in the last years of her life but is now with the Lord she loved and served. She and her husband, Alberto, (medical doctors and pastors) were the first Latin Americans who officially served as missionaries in India.
Thank you for praying.

"Rest and be thankful."
