CAM INTERNATIONAL – NEWSLINK – 27 August 2019
‘Look to the Lord and His strength; seek His face always’ (1 Chronicles 16:11)
Thank you for joining us in prayer this week for the work of CAM International. Here are some points for praise and prayer:-
Carol Seymour and Ginny Perkins had an excellent visit to Kipushi Prison on Sunday, with a very good meeting and an encouraging response to their Gospel message. However, they found the needs there ‘horrendous’, with many malnourished prisoners. Thank God for the spiritual blessings and also the food supplies they were able to take. Pray for the weak and sickly to be built up in strength. Today, at the Lighthouse Project, a reconciliation meeting is taking place to address some problems in the work there. Pray that everything may be resolved peacefully, through God’s love and grace. On Sunday, they plan to visit the two prisons at Likasi, taking badly-needed supplies. Pray for a fruitful time. Pray for a planned trip down to Zambia next week to fetch goods that have been shipped out from UK.
Gordon & Sybil McKillop and Sam Livingston are all praising God for a very good Children’s Camp over the past long weekend, with over 1,600 children attending! There was lots of fun and games, but also Bible teaching to smaller groups on the theme of ‘Knowing Jesus’. Thank God for safety and protection throughout the Camp. Pray that seeds sown will bear fruit in the children’s lives and that they will indeed come to know Jesus as Saviour. The staff at Nyangombe, as well as the missionaries, are all very tired, but they are now involved in the big clean-up and preparing for a Youth Camp starting on Thursday 29th. This involves a full schedule from 5am – 11pm, so it will be a very busy weekend! Pray for all the workers and teachers involved in the Camp, and pray that the young folk will be impacted for God in a life-changing way. Pray that the leaders will be able to have a good rest next week, when the camps are all over.
Wanderley & Rosaria da Silva enjoyed their holiday at the beach (in the south of Mozambique) during the 2-week pre-school break. Thank God for a refreshing time. They are now back in Chimoio and the pre-school has reopened. Pray for another fruitful term of learning and spiritual blessings for these young children. At the Vocational Centre, a sewing course is being completed this week and a new course starting, in IT (computing). Pray that everything will go smoothly. Thanks to CAM’s Cyclone Fund, the da Silvas are going to visit some more families this week and give them some help towards rebuilding their homes. Praise God for such a good response to the appeal, enabling this ongoing work to be done. Pray for these families to know God’s love in a personal way.
Daniel Habtey has had a very hot few days in London recently. He was involved with an Eritrean community development programme there. Only 14 people managed to attend, but we pray for the training to have a good outcome and bless the local community. This is the final week of Daniel’s online Leadership training course for Eritreans, which was launched in February. Pray for the students to do well in their exams, and to be ‘agents of change’ in their future ministry.
Thank you so much for all your prayers, which encourage and bless our workers.
