‘Be joyful in hope, patient in affliction, faithful in prayer’ (Romans 12:12)
Our hope is in God, so we can rejoice as we pray, knowing that He has the whole world in His hands. Thank you for your support in prayer. Here are some up-to-date items to guide you:-
In DR Congo, 30 June is Independence Day. Carol Seymour, Ginny Perkins and Lloyd Rowlands will be spending the day quietly at the Living Waters Centre in Lubumbashi while the country celebrates. There have been many rumours of potential troubles and uprisings. Pray for peace and security across this vast nation.
Lloyd has sent some news. Not able to visit churches, he is posting weekly devotional messages on Facebook and is encouraged by the positive feedback. He has been assured that his passport, with renewed visa, is safe in Kinshasa and will be sent when flights resume. Praise God for these blessings! On the practical side, Lloyd’s work in recent years to stop erosion of the local river banks is an ongoing battle. The vetiver grass he has been planting has not been as effective as hoped, so he is now planting elephant grass. The orchard has plenty of grapefruit and oranges ready for selling, and the tangerines are nearly ready. Pray that all Lloyd’s hard work will be blessed.
Wanderley & Rosaria da Silva were sorry when the President of Mozambique announced a further 30 days of lockdown in the country. This means that they will not be able to re-open the Pre-school until at least August now. Pray for them as they continue to keep in contact with the children and their families, giving them lessons and activities to follow at home. They are concerned that their residence visas will expire on 10 July, but no renewals are being done until September. Pray that this will not cause them any problems.
Pray for Daniel Habtey, in Huddersfield, that God will bless all his on-line training courses and help with the publishing of his books.
Ken Herschell update. He had heart surgery last Friday – a triple bypass operation – and is now doing well, after a couple of days in Intensive Care. Thank God. Pray for him as he recovers.
Gordon & Sybil McKillop are currently in Northern Ireland. They are seeing their son Bobby and family, but are also meeting with supporters, and have to select, load and transport tools, ready for onward shipping to Nyangombe. Pray for wisdom and blessing in all they do during this time in N Ireland. Yesterday they were repairing the Nyangombe email from UK and trust that it is now functioning. Pray that it will keep working well.
Pray for Sam Livingston, in Preston, as he waits to return to Zambia with the McKillops (hopefully at the end of July). Pray that his quarantine requirements for when he arrives there will be sorted out satisfactorily.
