In a town near Hyderabad, a couple runs a ministry called Jeevanam, which means “giving life.” The ministry reaches out to people who are HIV positive, helping to meet medical and spiritual needs. Through visiting the homes of people involved in their ministry, they can share the love of Jesus and the new life and hope that can be found in Him. As we approach the Christmas season and remember the birth of Jesus, the wonderful gift that God has given us, pray that people who receive the love of this ministry will also come to accept Jesus as Lord and Savior (The Bible, 1 John 3:1-2).

The Catholic diocese in Mauritania has dramatically impacted the lives of people from different communities. People from poor backgrounds were rearing livestock. As more people were forced to settle in cities due to drought, they tried to improve their living conditions. Then, the Churches reached out to the oppressed and the needy, helping families to fetch for themselves. Mothers and children were taught health and hygiene. When children were taken care of, they experienced miraculous changes. The generosity extended by the global Church and the prayer support have made the change possible.
Millions of Mauritanians need a divine encounter with the Lord Jesus Christ. Pray that all those who still need help will hope in Christ and live a peaceful life (The Bible, Luke 2:14).
