Samaritan’s Purse on Their Way to Wembley
By Peter Wooding

LONDON, ENGLAND (ANS) -- Samaritan’s Purse UK is joining thousands of believers on their way to Wembley Stadium for the National Day of Prayer and Worship (NDOP) on September 29th, when the Christian charity will be leading prayers for some of the poorest and most vulnerable children around the world.
“With just over two weeks to go until NDOP we are really excited to be part of this historic event, where we will be highlighting the plight of some of the neediest children around the globe,” said Samaritan’s Purse UK Executive Director Simon Barrington.
On September 29th, as tens of thousands of Christians gather together at Wembley, there will be a time of prayer for the children in over 105 countries who’ll be receiving gift-filled shoeboxes through this year’s Operation Christmas Child campaign.
Before Simon Barrington leads the thousands gathered at Wembley in a time of prayer, a special children’s choir will perform a song specially written for the day, that highlights the plight of the world’s poorest children, followed by a series of video presentations that will look at the impact of the work of Samaritan’s Purse in Nepal helping the victims of trafficking and also looking at the work of Operation Christmas Child in Mongolia.
Simon Barrington concluded: “Our hope is that those gathered at Wembley will be challenged and inspired to continue to be praying for and acting on behalf of those who are orphaned, living in poverty and disease and victims of trafficking.”
