Prayer Requests for Week Commencing 15 - 06 - 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.

 

 

ZAMBIA

Please pray for Julie-Rachel Elwood, who has gone to Zambia this week to begin full-time service for the Lord. She will be working as a nurse and midwife at Chitokoloki Hospital, as well as being involved in childrenís work and other forms of outreach.

Jean-Luc Hainaut (Eliya) advises that his leg injury (see Missionary Prayer Request, 4th May) is now healing well following treatment at Chitokoloki, and he has been able to go back to work. Give thanks for this answer to prayer.

John and Gwyneth Symons (Mkushi) say they have just had one of the best baptism services they can remember at Chengelo School. 121 people were baptised, most of whom had come to the Lord whilst at the school. One former student, now aged 30, gave a clear testimony of how she had searched for the truth since leaving Chengelo. Give thanks for this encouragement and pray that the Lord will continue to work among the children.

INDIA

Ron Penny (Bangalore) reports that a cyclone has hit the Calcutta region recently, causing widespread damage and affecting mainly poor people. There is a great need for medicines, as many are sick from drinking contaminated water. Tarpaulins are also needed to protect people from heavy rain and from the heat of the sun, now that the monsoon season has started. Pray for Ron as he seeks to liaise with others to help those in need.

 

JAMAICA

Drs Winston and Nurkle Litchmore advise that the Midland Bible Institute was recently broken into. One member of staff lost her purse and laptop, and a book containing personal details. In addition a number of laptop computers were stolen and some cell phones. Thankfully no one was injured but the staff and students were shaken by this event. Some of the aforementioned items have been returned but the computers have been sold on by the thieves. The security at Midland Bible Institute is being reviewed and police advice is being sought. Please remember this situation in your prayers.

REPUBLIC OF IRELAND

Colin and Rosemary Sheldon (Dublin) will be distributing various gospel magazines to homes around the assembly during this month, as will many other workers and churches across the country. Pray for Godís Word to have an impact.

John and Linda Stanfield (Limerick) have been encouraged recently by the conversion of a man called Jackie, who is ill with lung cancer. Pray for this man and his wife and son. John and Linda have also had two replies following the distribution of a gospel magazine in the local area. Pray that others who have received the magazine will ask for further literature and that the Lord will speak to them through His Word.

NORWAY

Nat and Jennifer Rodgers (Skien) request prayer for their family camp near Bergen, which starts on 19th June. Pray for a time of blessing and encouragement.

SPAIN

Ken Barrett (Madrid) is in the UK this coming weekend with the Kilometre Zero outreach team from Spain. Pray for them as they preach on the streets of Bath and Bristol. The preaching will be filmed and placed on a website of resources for open-air work.

LOCAL

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

Tom Turton is responsible for the Gospel Service on Sunday next, 21st June.
