We received this message from our CFCA project in Antipolo, Philippines:
“We are thinking at this moment of the people, particularly our sponsors, in Texas. We have seen in the news the huge tornado that hit the state of Texas. We hope and pray our sponsors are safe.
Please know we keep them in our thoughts and prayers for their recovery as we understand how one feels when affected by calamity.

Gracias Ö Salamat Ö Asante … Thank you. At CFCA, gratitude is expressed in many languages and for many reasons.
This Thanksgiving, we give thanks for the worldwide CFCA community: a spirited movement consisting of sponsored children, youth and elderly, their heroic families, generous sponsors and donors, courageous and dedicated field staff, committed employees and volunteers.
Thank you for your faith in our mission, for sharing your gifts and for walking with us as we build a better world that recognizes the dignity of all God’s children.
O God, look with compassion on the CFCA family; continue to unite us in bonds of love; lead us to accomplish your purposes on Earth so that all may share in your generous bounty; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.

As so many of us, my daily life is hectic and distracting. When I received the invitation from CFCA for Prayer Partners, it sounded appealing. What I didn’t expect was that I would be so moved and impressed with the prayers.
They take me out of my daily “busyness” and bring me to a moment of reflection and communication with the Lord that is all too often neglected. It has provided a talking point with my family, as I can read the prayers at dinner and share the message. I am eagerly looking forward to continuing this communication. Thank you!
Prayer Partners†began in August 2008†to provide a doorway into the CFCA projects. These weekly e-mails offer a prayerful way to support the CFCA community†and hopefully, to also enhance your own spiritual life. Prayer Partners is delivered on Mondays, and you can sign up to receive the e-mails on our†Web site.
