Pray that this team is focused on what God is already doing in Mexico and willing to join him there. Pray for the two days of training with leaders from five different churches in the area.

- Pray for the Moldova team as they are finishing up their preparations for their trip August 23 – September 2. Plans are being finalized and the people in Moldova are excited to continue the training. Many of the participants will travel from areas that have not had any children’s ministry training before. Several of those attending are working in summer kids camps at this time. There are some at these camps that have attended past KidZ at Heart trainings and are showing others what they have learned.
