Prayer Requests for Week Commencing 16 - 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.

ZAMBIA

Rita Hainautís (Eliya) motherís health has deteriorated quite suddenly. The brain tumour removed lastAugust has showed up again and seems to be worse than the first time. She was in hospital for a little while but asked to return home. She spends most of her time in bed, is no longer eating and finds it very difficult to get up and move. Last week she was to have chemotherapy but the doctors cancelled it plus all other planned sessions. Due to these circumstances, Jean-Luc and Rita left Lupiya on 16th February and flying from Lusaka to Belgium on 19th. Please pray for Ritaís parents, and for Jean-Luc and Rita as they travel and during the next few weeks as they cope with this situation. At this stage, their plan is to be in Belgium for a month.

 

On 16th February, Eric McCaughren (Kitwe) began two weeks of teaching the basic principles of Bible interpretation, aimed especially at younger men. Each evening session is for two hours. Pray that those who would benefit most may attend faithfully.

BRAZIL

Harry Reid (Santarem) will be having bypass surgery at Mater Private Hospital, in Dublin, on 19th February and would appreciate prayer for the operation and for a good recovery. Jean will be staying in a hotel adjacent to the hospital, so please pray for her also during this time.

PANAMA
Hazel Walker (Santiago) currently in Northern Ireland, is due to have an operation on a throat cyst on 18th February. Please pray for successful surgery and a quick recovery.

FRANCE

Ronnie Skene (Figeac) (left)) is grateful for your prayers regarding his sciatica. The pain has reduced and his doctor has given the all-clear for his and Heatherís visit to Northern Ireland, which starts on 23rd February. Please pray that Ronnie will keep well and be able to fulfil his speaking engagements.

 

 

 

Alison Packer (Laval) has asked for prayer as she visits a consultant in Paris and has an MRI scan on 18th February. Pray that this visit may shed light on the reasons for her continuing health problems.

Yannick and Margaret Ollivier (Quimper Region) have sent an update on their situation. Margaret is to have the baby by caesarean on the 23rd February at the University Hospital in Rennes, which has a lot of experience in treating babies with this condition and with good results. In the meantime she has a series of appointments with the surgeon, paediatrician and others. While Yannick and Margaret are looking forward to welcoming their baby, they are also apprehensive. Pray that the Lord will give them the strength and courage that they need at this time.

 

IRELAND

Noel and Liza McMeekin (Cootehill) continue their Postal Bible School prize-givings this week in Cavan at Belturbet on 18th. 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.

AUSTRALIA
Please remember in
prayer those who have been injured, bereaved or traumatised as a result of the bush fires currently raging in Victoria state. ECHOES have had reports of believers losing their lives and others have lost their livelihoods. Pray for people who are now homeless and living in tents.

LOCAL

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

Robert Plant (Harrogate) is planned to be with us for the Gospel Service on Sunday evening at 6:30 pm.
