CAM INTERNATIONAL – NEWSLINK – 14 May 2019
‘Pray continually; give thanks in all circumstances’ (1 Thess.5:17-18)
Here’s our latest news to help you praise and pray with us for the work of CAM International. We are so grateful for your interest and support.
Gordon McKillop met his wife Sybil at Solwezi on Sunday, along with 2 American visitors. It was a 5-hour drive to Nyangombe, with 3 of those hours ‘in and out of bone-jarring potholes’. They didn’t arrive until 9pm. Pray for Sybil as she adjusts back to her Zambian life and ministry after over 10 weeks in UK. A short-term Bible School started last Saturday, with a good number attending, and will last for 16 days. Pray for teachers and students to be blessed and equipped through the different courses that are taught. Many visitors are arriving this week and next to see various works around the NW Province, so it is a ‘very busy time, with work, ministry and visitors pulling us in many different directions.’ Pray for the McKillops as they seek to respond to all the needs.
Lloyd Rowlands is now over the bad throat he had last week – praise God! Tomorrow he will be attending a big funeral for the mother of Pastor Betavie (General Superintendent of the Pentecostal Church of Congo). Pray for the family, for God’s comfort and for people to be touched by the Gospel message. Lloyd has been busy with the Centre workers, sorting through piles of rubbish that has accumulated over 3 years, separating for recycling, burning, composting, etc. Pray for all his practical work, and that he will have more opportunities for his preaching/teaching ministry.
Wanderley & Rosaria da Silva have started the process of registering their Centro Baruk (Blessing Centre) with the government. Pray for wisdom and patience as they deal with all the official documents involved. Pray that the fees charged will be reasonable. Wanderley has had an attack of malaria. He is much better today. Pray for his complete recovery.
Dave & Ruth Garrard arrived safely with all their luggage in Ndola, Zambia, last Saturday. On Sunday, Dave preached at the new Oasis Church in the city centre. Yesterday he started a 5-day course of Bible teaching with church leaders. Pray for him and for his students, for good communication and understanding.
Carol Seymour and Ginny Perkins have been participating in the Missions Conference at Croydon New Life Christian Centre, which started last Saturday and continues until Sunday. Apparently it is going really well. Pray for God’s blessing on their times of sharing. Pray that they will also be blessed and encouraged as they listen to other missionaries’ presentations.
Thank you so much for all your prayers, which encourage and bless our workers.
