President Volodymyr Zelensky held the first conversation in the history of bilateral relations with President of Guinea-Bissau Umaro Sissoco Embaló. The leaders discussed support in international organizations. He expressed Ukraine’s readiness to be a food security guarantor in the region. Pray for Guinea-Bissau, one of the least developed countries in the world. Pray for this small country with 1.8 million inhabitants and over 70 per cent of its population living below the poverty line (The Bible, Job 29:12).
In the seventh wave of COVID-19, Japan is experiencing an increase in COVID-19-related deaths, as the BA.5 subvariant of Omicron sweeps the nation. The daily number of deaths is expected to surpass that of the previous wave as facilities for the elderly have been greatly impacted. Pray that the God of comfort will minister to those who are grieving the deaths of loved ones. Pray that many will be hungry for the love and comfort, peace, and grace that can only come through Jesus Christ. May the hearts of many in Japan be softened, and pray for a new beginning to happen in Japan – that a wave of salvations will sweep the land (The Bible, Acts 2:47).
