Prayer Requests for Week Commencing 18th December, 2006

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.  

ZAMBIA

Ray and Ruth Williams (Chavuma) mention several items for prayer regarding the assembly and hospital work. Between Christmas and New Year, there will be a week of prayer and waiting on the Lord for blessing on His work. Please pray for a revitalisation of the assembly in the future. Pray, too, that the assembly will be moved to reach out into the surrounding villages. In the hospital, quite a few of the senior staff have left, so pray for those who remain, that they will cope well with the heavy workload, and for help as they witness to the patients.

BAHAMAS

It gives Mark Lacey great joy and pleasure to report the wonderful news that this past weekend they finally moved The Haven ministry onto the new site! In spite of much opposition and government red tape they now have all the various permits to allow them to use the building. From beginning to end they paid no bribes to any one and they give glory to the Lord for all His enabling help in removing the many obstacles that Satan sought to stumble them with.

Please join them in praise and thanksgiving to our Lord and Saviour for all the help, finance and fortitude given to realise this vision and burden given to them 6 1/2 years ago.

Satan has been busy throughout in various ways to discourage and bring to a halt this venture of the Lord's, but they are thanking Him for the victory and testimony this is to the fervent prayers of His people.

BRAZIL

Jeff and Denise Watson (Foz do Iguacu) request prayer for a Christmas play being held by the young people, using hand puppets. They are practicing each afternoon this week, in time for the performance on the evening of 25th. Pray that many will attend, and that as the gospel is proclaimed, hearts will be touched and people saved. Pray, too, for a response to the gospel tract distribution last week and this, that Godís Word will have an impact on those who read it.

Chrissie McSorley (Sacramento) requests prayer for the annual meeting at the creche for children and their parents, to be held on 21st December. The hall will be filled with non-Christians, so please pray that the true message of Christmas will speak to the hearts of those who attend.

MEXICO

Eglon and Judith Harris report that the Christmas activities held on two recent Sunday evenings, organised by the young people, saw good numbers attending. Eglon is busy with the choir on 23rd and a different programme is arranged for 31st. Please pray for help and that the gospel message will touch the hearts of those who go along to listen.

LEBANON

Don and Nicola Alexander ask us to pray for the Christmas presentation being held at the Lebanese Evangelical School, Ain Zahalta, for the studentsí families on the morning of 21st. There will be a nativity play and an evangelistic talk as part of this event, so pray that the Lord will speak through the Christmas message.

CZECH REPUBLIC

Pavel & Danka Vopalecky will be taking part in their fourth Open Air Christmas Service. It will be held at 10:00 pm on the 24th December. In previous years between 1500 and 2200 people attended. 26,000 invitation cards have been mailed and some given out personally. Please remember in prayer.

LOCAL

The informal Carol Service will be held this coming Sunday at 4:30 pm. The timing could be a help to elderly people in the neighbourhood who donít normally go out after tea  in winter. Please remember Andrew Lumsden in prayer that this occasion may be a time when the Lord speaks to individuals.
