Each day of Advent, we’re sharing a prayer from one of our missioners, people they serve, volunteers, staff, board members and friends all around the world.

Today’s prayer is from Tim Marcy, one of our lay missioners in South Africa who works at an HIV/AIDS clinic and is a practicing deacon.

“This Christmas I am thankful for my wife, family and friends – and that I do what I like to do: travel, meet new people and help people with my knowledge and person.”

Tim writes words of hope on a wall in the Regina Mundi church in South Africa, one of the homes of Aparteid movement

YOU can add a prayer to FMS’ virtual prayer wall on our website. We’d love to know what you are thankful for this Christmas and what you are praying for in 2012.
