Prayer Requests for Week Commencing 09 - 02 - 09

 

The following information comes mainly from the Echoes weekly prayer bulletin and further details can be found on their web site. Other prayer requests have come from direct communication with the missionary involved.  The prayer requests listed here are, as far as is sensibly practical, for activities that are happening on the particular week. A list of previous weekly Missionary Prayer requests can be found here.

The Assembly also publishes a monthly Missionary Prayer Newsletter, for prayer requests on a longer time-scale, but this is not currently available on the web site.

 

 

ETHIOPIA

The six-week Bible School in Chobi finishes this week. Give thanks for the interest shown and for help given to the teachers. Pray that all that has been said and done will be blessed by the Lord and that the teaching and fellowship will produce fruit to Godís glory. Remember particularly Kasahun Chala, who leads the final sessions, from 16th-21st.

MALAWI

Stephen and Gail Harper (Thondwe) request prayer for the new bookshop work. They had been promised delivery of books from Mozambique but are disappointed to learn that the consignment is stuck in South Africa. This is quite a setback as they had hoped to be open by now. Please pray for the quick and safe arrival of these goods. Pray, too, that the bookshop will prove to be a useful point of contact for Christians and unsaved alike.

REPUBLIC OF IRELAND

Noel and Liza McMeekin continue their Postal Bible School prize-givings this week in Newbliss on 10th February, Ballybay on 11th, Cootehill on 12th, and Cashel and Mountrath on 13th. Please pray for safety as they travel many miles and especially during the hours of darkness, and pray, too, for a sense of Godís presence and for help for the speakers as they make known the gospel message.

ITALY

Leo and Angela Isac (San Minato) request prayer for an outreach in the church hall on 14th February. Pray that those invited will go along. There is still a stigma attached to going into an evangelical hall, and many people do not attend because they donít want to be seen to be associating with evangelicals.

 

SPAIN

Ken and Alison Barrett (Madrid) ask for prayer for Ken, who will be out with evangelism teams in Madrid city centre on 11th and 12th February. Pray for the Lordís provision for the ministry, spiritual renewal among the leadership and material help for many Latin believers on the teams who face financial and health hardships, so that the efficacy of the gospel preaching might not be impaired. Give thanks to the Lord that an overzealous police interpretation of new publicity laws has been curbed, apparently by the intervention of the Protestant Federation through the Spanish Ministry of Justice. In addition, the emerging leadership team in the AlcalŠ church meets over the next weekend to think and pray through issues, as Ken now remains in sole eldership in the AlcalŠ assembly. Please pray for wisdom and the Lordís timing in the steps needed to build up a more lasting plural leadership team. 

 LOCAL

"Coffee & Chat" each Wednesday morning at 10:30 am.

Martin Bolam (S. Shields) is planned to be with us for the Gospel Service on Sunday evening.
