The East Austin Wellness Center is pleased to announce that we’ve “walked” a total of 2,420 miles on our Walk to Jerusalem over the past two weeks, making it to Fes, Morocco in our first week and all the way to Gabes, Tunisia this week!
If you have the chance, please take a moment to familiarize yourself with Gabes, reading the Wikipedia entry here. You’re encouraged to reflect on and pray for this part of the world during your exercise this week.
Gabes Prayer Needs:
- The city’s fast-growing number of chemical factories has resulted in a serious pollution and health problem, both in the area and in the Gulf of Gabes. The government is working on new programs and laws to decrease the amount of pollution. Please pray for them in this important effort.
- Poverty and unemployment are on the rise, and the city is seeing a lot of social unrest resulting in violent protests involving unemployed residents and the police. Please pray for peace, love, guidance and support for all involved in these issues.
Additionally, below is this week’s devotion that you are welcome to reflect on and even discuss if you choose to exercise with others.
