A young victim of gang violence who urgently needs our prayers

12 September

We're pleased to share the news that Benny is now at home and receiving therapy. Sadly he still hasn't recovered much movement. The team from Compassion Colombia ask us to keep praying for a miracle for this little boy.

Our friends and colleagues from Compassion Colombia share an update on Benny and ask us to continue praying for this young boy in a critical condition:

“One of the shots impacted Benny’s spinal cord and he is quadriplegic. The family is suffering a lot and although Benny is still unknown in his diagnosis, he has the faith that everything will be okay. Benny is waiting a miracle from God and we pray for that. Nothing is impossible for God.”

  • Please pray for Benny from Colombia who is in intensive care in hospital. Tragically Benny was shot four times by thieves from local gangs who then stole some of his family's belongings. 
  • Remember 15-year-old Kevin and 10-year-old Brayan from El Salvador in your prayers. The two brothers are grieving the loss of their mum who was murdered by a local gang.
