Even after travel restrictions hit in January 2020, Jim and Stacy Landry have stayed busy. As the virus spread and shutdowns happened, food relief was soon the biggest need as many people found themselves without work. In virtual coordination with others, the Landrys have done about 70 projects and seen God open new areas to an active witness for Christ. One of those is a group of migrant workers from another country living right in their own city. With a growing need for food due to COVID-19, the Global Hunger Relief offering is more important than ever. Please pray the offering this year will be abundant and overflowing.
Jim is now leading many of his previously in-person trainings online via Zoom. Pray he would have wisdom about adapting and adjusting things to make the format and interaction better. Pray those who are being trained would be able to use these new skills to reach their target people. Stacy also seeks prayers for her much-needed Trauma Healing trainings.
Restricted to their area of service since January, Jim and Stacy missed the birth of their granddaughter in June as well as two graduations—one son graduated from college and another from medical school. It was difficult not to be present for these important milestones in their children’s lives. At this point, it does not look like they will be able to leave until probably next year. Please pray for them to be content where God now has them.
