Prayer Requests for Week Commencing 19-11-2007

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.  A list of previous weekly Missionary Prayer requests can be found here.

 

ETHIOPIA

Please continue to remember John McQuoid, who is currently revisiting Ethiopia. This week he is in Ginchi, 70 miles west of Addis Ababa. This town has seen great blessing over the past 15 years, with around 7,000 people coming to faith and almost 100 assemblies and preaching stations being established. Pray for John as he teaches the elders and evangelists, who will be coming together from all over the area, and also as he speaks to high school students on Saturday.

ZAMBIA

ECHOES report that short-term worker Helen Hindson (Zambia) may be able to leave hospital in Belfast very soon, as she is now starting to walk again. However, she will need a wheelchair and crutches for a while yet. Give thanks for this good progress, and pray that it may continue.

THAILAND

Dr Geoff and Pat Atkinson Thailand) are travelling to the Thai/Lao border at the end of November for the Khmu womenís conference. Pat will be the speaker, and they are expecting many Khmu women to come from Laos. Pray for a good time of fellowship and blessing.

BRAZIL

Jeff and Denise Watson (Foz) are currently preparing for Christmas activities and for the new year ahead. Tragically, one of their young people was shot dead at the end of October, causing great panic amongst others in the group. Many are now in hiding, for fear of being the next. Pray for Jeff and Denise, that the Lord will give them His wisdom to know how to handle this sad and dangerous situation. They are trying to encourage the young people to return to the meetings.

Walter Alexander (Vitoria) has been allowed home from hospital following his recent surgery. He is still very weak, so needs our continued prayers, but is in good spirits and rejoicing in the Lord.

This week, Harry and Jean Reid will be visiting a town called Gort in the south of Ireland, where one person in every four is a Brazilian immigrant.  They will be taking a good selection of Portuguese literature to distribute among these folk, and prayer is requested that they will have a good reception. 

CANADA

Peter Smith is with the small assembly in Grand Bend (near Sarnia, Ontario) for childrenís meetings. He then flies on to England on Sunday evening for a brief 10 day visit to his Mum, before returning with Elaine's Mum, who is planning to stay with them for four weeks, God willing.

FRANCE

Alison Packerís (Laval) five-hour operation went well and the doctors say they found no nasty surprises. Please pray that she will recover quickly from the operation and the weeks of intense pain which have left her feeling very tired. Pray, too, that she will recover her appetite. Pray for Mike and the boys to remain positive and trust in the Lord. Remember especially Sebastien, who has just left to spend ten months in Spain.

Allan and Anne Kitt(Villefranche-sur-Saone) are planning to distribute tracts to about 550 new homes which have been built near their hall. The tract will welcome people to the district and encourage them to think about making a fresh start with God. Please pray for these new residents. Some may be Christians already, and could be a real help in the assembly.

SPAIN

Ken Barrett requests prayer for an English camp which is due to take place on 24th and 25th November. This has been planned by the missionaries associated with the Alcala assembly, as a means of making contacts in the community. Several church members will be involved as conversational language helpers over the weekend. Please pray that hearts will be opened to the gospel.

OTHER OVERSEAS SERVICE

Peter Hedley is visiting Albania for teaching and preaching this coming week. Please pray that he will be encouraged and helped and that the Lord will bless those who attend the meetings.

Please pray for Ian Burness (ECHOES) as he travels to Angola from 23rd November to 8th December.

LOCAL

John Wilcock (Wylam) is the planned speaker this coming Sunday at 6:30 pm.
