Prayers for Peacemakers, 16 August 2013


  Epixel* for 18 August 2013

 Therefore, since we a resurrounded by so great a cloud of witnesses, let us
lay aside every weight,
and sin which clings so closely,
and let us run with endurance
the race that is set before us,
to Jesus, the founder
and perfecter of our faith.
Hebrews 12: 1-2a

Prayers for Peacemakers, 16 August 2013

Give thanks that Colombian authorities have revoked
the right of Aportes San Isidro SA Security Guards to carry weapons because of
their violent attacks on the people of Las Pavas. 

Pray that the local police, who have not protected
the Las Pavas community in the past, will enforce the court’s decision

Will you host a dinner party for CPT?

CPT really needs your support in raising $10k in September. Unfortunately, we are behind our financial targets and need your help. We want to dedicate the month of September to bringing people together around the dinner table. You can choose the date, who you invite and what you cook (though our teams have some great recipes prepared!) We’d love to hear if you’d be interested. 

There’s no commitment needed at this stage.
