Lift up Jackie Banks, who has served MAF with her husband, Ron, for over 30 years. Their first assignment was in the Amazon jungles of Venezuela and they also worked with learning technology to train church leaders in India, Costa Rica and Eastern Europe.

Now that she is a widow, pray that her personal needs will be met as well as her MAF support.
