‘Devote yourselves to prayer, being watchful and thankful (Colossians 4:2)

Thank you for your interest in CAM International and for your support in prayer. Here is the latest news from our CAM personnel, with points for praise and prayer:-

Carol Seymour and Ginny Perkins arrived safely back in Lubumbashi last Tuesday. They had to wait for well over an hour for their baggage to appear, but it was all there and all intact. Praise God! They have returned to very erratic electricity supplies, clouds of red dust (it’s late dry season) and mice in the ceiling of their house! Pray for patience and quick adjustment back to local conditions! Since they arrived back, they have had an almost continuous stream of visitors coming to update them, often with moving stories of how God has helped them through difficult situations. Yesterday, they went shopping for supplies (personal and for the prison ministry, etc.) On Sunday 25th they hope to visit Kipushi Prison (about 20 miles from Lubumbashi). Pray that their trip will be a blessing and encouragement for the prisoners and guards.

Gordon & Sybil McKillop and Sam Livingston report that the Church Convention at Nyangombe went very well, last Thurs – Mon, with over 1,000 people present. Many were counselled, and many of these gave their lives to Christ. Praise God! Pray for these new believers, and others who rededicated their lives to God, to go on well and grow in the faith. Now preparations are ongoing for the Children’s Camp, which starts on Thursday and finishes on Monday 26th. Pray for Sam as he teaches some children sketches to perform at the Camp. Sunday school teachers are coming in a day early for training. Pray for those preparing messages and materials. Pray for safe transport for the children and for God’s blessing on every aspect of the Camp. May many young lives be transformed!

CAM trustee Fletcher Kusaloka, who lives in Preston, is a Zambian who comes from the Nyangombe area. He is currently visiting Zambia and arrived at Nyangombe early today. Some of his wider family have come in to see him. Pray for his visit to be a blessing, both to himself and to those he meets with.

Wanderley & Rosaria da Silva are on holiday in southern Mozambique, while the pre-school is closed for two weeks. They should be returning to Chimoio this weekend. Pray for safety on the long drive back, over some very bad roads.

Thank you so much for all your prayers, which encourage and bless our workers.
