I notice you’re from Sweden. I visited there years ago. A lot of history!
I've found that a lot of people here in the U.S. don't know much about their own country,
much less anyone else's.
I post prayer updates about different countries. Part of the reason is to raise awareness about what's going on in the rest of the world. If I notice someone on DA is from another country, if I've done their country I let them know. Its my way of letting them know that others are thinking about their home.
This update is about your home!
