Pray for new Afar believer L recently visited in his desert village by missionaries. He had filled his house with many people in readiness to hear the gospel. Pray for his continued encouragement and that of all the believers. May they grow in knowledge, faith and zeal. The Afar are an un-reached people spread over the horn of Africa in Ethiopia, Eritrea, Djibouti and Somalia.
