Hadley (Saurimo) asks prayer that she will find the
sufficient time needed for preparation of the three main Bible study
groups that she runs. When demands of day to day life are so many,
and in an area where people are petrified by witchcraft claims or
accusations, the importance that each endeavour is done in the
strength of Christ becomes even more paramount.

distributing books and Bibles.
Tim and Joy Beer (Loloma)
that the camp and conference season is going well, having had a
number of youth camps and also Bible teaching conferences at
Samafunda Centre. Each of these lasts for 4 or 5 days, and
there is a great opportunity to reach young people with the Gospel
at the camps, and at the Bible conferences to teach believers from
the local churches in the area. A number of similar activities will
follow in the next 2-3 months for which they would value prayer.
In addition, they ask prayer for the daily presentation of
the gospel through the wards in the hospital, and also the
devotionals that are held with the staff twice a week. The ongoing
vision is to meet not only the physical needs, but to also spread
the truth of the Gospel for spiritual healing.
Ian and Marilyn
– The new ladies
group that began with a group of believers studying the Bible, has
become a mix of believers and unbelievers and created an opportunity
for witness. Pray that these studies would challenge
and change those who don’t know Christ and encourage those who do.
Eric and Margaret

School of Nursing, Vocational Training College, College of Education
and Mukuba University. Several young people from the assembly

staff. Pray that they will read the contents and be challenged and
want to learn more about salvation in Christ. Gospel booklets

their spiritual well-being. Pray that these people would come to
understand the hope they can have in Christ.

Bible Study is held for school mums when approximately ten ladies
attend. Prayer is asked that they will enlarge their vision
of God and put their trust in Him. In addition, during the month of
July Luis will be teaching at the Bible Institute in
Trujillo and would value prayer for the teachers, and
pastoral care of the students.
Enris and Sylvia Nase (Tirana) – At the beginning of
June the first Bible exhibition was held in a small town in
the north of Albania and they have further bookings arranged.
Pray that this tool may be used to bring an understanding of the
Bible and its message of salvation.

asks prayer for the completion of a project producing
a small booklet, translated from English to Czech, to aid
understanding and encourage prayer for Vietnamese
Christians. It contains stories of Vietnamese Christians, the
