Reaching the Orphan in Africa

Tom & Sue Peters Grace Church partners with Tom & Sue Peters. Tom is serving with VisionTrust International.  

Pastor Tom will leverage his Central African experience as a missionary-child to oversee the orphan care ministries of VisionTrust in the Central African Republic and in other countries of Africa. Grace Church is so proud to partner with Pastor Tom & Sue, the second generation of Peters from our church to serve in Central Africa.  Grace Church counts it a privilege to send them out from our church to seek to develop fully devoted followers of Jesus in all the nations of the world.

Please pray for Pastor Tom & Sue as they sacrifice to help orphans with VisionTrust in Africa.  We praise God for His leading to place the Peters' in a position to help develop more Africans to be fully devoted followers of Christ and then to serve their communities and families. 

So please pray for Pastor Tom & Sue in the following ways:
  • ASk God to give Pastor Tom strength and stamina for his trip to Zimbabwe from Jan 15-25, 2014.  
  • Praise God for in-country partnership to help orphans in the Central African Republic
  • Ask God to provide NGO status for VisionTrust with the future government in the CAR
  • Ask God to bring His peace to the Central African Republic amid the escalating humanitarian crises
