Pray for Fraser’s as he builds the library portal, and for training sessions in different nations, when government elections can lead to participants being unwilling to travel as the prospect of violence is very real.
Pray for the safety of warders after a warder was killed and another hospitalised in an Eastern Cape prison. This is having a ripple effect throughout prisons in South Africa.
Give thanks for the Christian prison workers, one of whom was recently attacked (not for the first time). Pray that his attacker will come to real repentance and restoration.
Remember Andile Mafanga who is sure he has been made a scapegoat for being the wrong colour and being in the wrong place at the wrong time. Pray that he will continue to cling to God for himself and his family.
Also Jan Booysen who became a Christian in 2013 and is now a humble and sensitive leader as he reaches out to others (even warders call him in if someone seems suicidal). Pray that he will be allowed to train others as his assistants.
Another Restorative Justice Course will run in Drakenstein May 6-11. We need people and churches to provide lunches during the course, important for breaking down barriers in love. £55-£82 provides a non-prison issue lunch for 24-28 inmates, 15 ministry personnel and 5 prison officers.
