‘The prayer of a righteous person is powerful and effective’ (James 5:16)
Thank you for joining with us in prayer for the work of CAM. Your interest and support are a great encouragement. Here is some up-to-date news to help you in your prayers.
Funeral of Bahati Masuka. This was yesterday, 2 December, in York. Over 200 people filled the cemetery chapel for a stirring, ‘truly African’ memorial service, with songs in Swahili from the Tanzanians. Dave Garrard shared some of his personal memories of Bahati. Remember Miriam, her 14-year-old daughter and young son as they work through their deep grief.
Gordon & Sybil McKillop have important planning meetings for Nyangombe Christian Training Centre coming up this week, with people travelling in to participate. There has already been a lot of planning for these vital meetings! They will take place from Thursday to Saturday, looking at different aspects of the programme each day. Pray for God’s guidance as they work through the various proposals for next year. The local hospital is still awaiting delivery of urgent supplies. Pray for these to turn up, and for other sources to be found in the meantime.
Sam Livingston mentioned his Wednesday Bible study for young people. Last week it was very good, as many young people who have returned from boarding school came along and really enjoyed the time together. Thank God for this great opportunity to reach the youth. Pray for this group, as they meet week by week, to be built up in their faith. Pray for Sam as he prepares the studies. The children’s workers are all busy with Christmas preparations. Pray that the children they work with at Nyangombe will be blessed as they celebrate the birth of Jesus.
Daniel Habtey is busy organising a conference for second generation Eritreans in London on Saturday 14 December. 40 students have registered and there is room for 10 more at the venue. Pray for all the preparations and for ‘inspiration and good communication on the day’.
Thank you so much for your prayers, which encourage and bless our workers.
