Welcome to day 18 of our 31 days of compassion. Today, we want to take you on a trip, and you can choose your destination from 26 countries throughout Central America and the Caribbean, South America, Africa, and Asia. You can even travel to specific regions of your chosen country, such as the northwestern region of the Dominican Republic, the Amazon region of Ecuador, the rural region of Kenya, or the central region of Thailand. You do not need an airplane to take this trip. You just need some time and the willingness to pray for the people you will learn so much about.
When choosing your country and/or region, ask yourself these questions:
• Has the Lord placed a specific country or people group on my heart?
• Do I have a connection to someone in a specific country or region?
• Is there a culture I have always wanted to learn more about?
Where did you choose to travel today? What did you learn about the country and/or region you visited and its beautiful people? What were you led to pray for these people in response to your exploration? Please share your experience in the comments, and encourage others to travel across the world and pray for those they meet along the way.
