Carrying the cross of illness
Illness can come to any of us at any time. And many of our Mission friends write to ask for prayers for a family member or friend, and for themselves as they carry the cross of illness, very frequently the illness of cancer.
Praying for those friends who are ill, or those close to them, is a small way that we can do in return for the wonderful generosity of those who give us their partnership on the Zulu Missions.
We’d also like to share with you a prayer that was sent to us by a long standing Mission friend. This prayer was composed by her friend, Catherine, who is carrying the cross of both cancer and Parkinson’s Disease.

Whenever you say this prayer, please think of all other Mission friends and their loved ones who are suffering from illness in some way.
