Dear Friends,

We are requesting you as participating organisations of WCC-EAA, that each of your organisation is able to sign up and endorse the Global ‘Day of Prayer to End Famine’ on 21 May 2017 to be launched tomorrow. We are grateful to you if you have already endorsed it and agreed to be one of the organisations launching the call.  The General Secretaries of WCC & AACC had send out a call last week. The letter is attached with this message- please see below for the link to  register as partners in the campaign.

All this work is possible because of your committed guidance and support. We would very much want you register and back this Day of Prayer and to promote it among your partners and networks.

I am attaching the key documents that are part of a basic kit that has been developed for the Global day of Prayer- will be made available to the public only tomorrow. These documents are also being translated to French, Spanish and German and to be made available this week. Please go through it and contribute prayers and useful documents that we can add to the resources.
