CAM INTERNATIONAL – NEWSLINK – 6 November 2018
‘Don’t be anxious… but in everything, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God’ (Phil 4:6).
Here’s our latest news to help you praise and pray for the work of CAM International in Africa and in UK.
Water crisis in Lubumbashi: Lloyd Rowlands reports that the situation has improved. Firstly, he had an old well dug deeper, providing water for the orchard and tree nursery, though unsuitable for kitchen use. Secondly, there has been some more rain at last. Thank God. Pray for good, substantial rains; pray for wisdom in seeking to resolve the long-term water problems at the Centre.
Lloyd Rowlands was pleased to have his ministry opportunity on Sunday, preaching at a church in Tumbwe village. He had a good meeting. Praise God. Pray for Pastor Luc, the church leader, who is ‘very weak and frail, in need of a miracle’. Next Sunday, Lloyd will be speaking at a city church, ‘Living Stones’. Pray for God’s anointing on his ministry.
Sandy is preparing her English lessons for ISTELU Bible College, which start its new academic year in a couple of weeks. Pray for her.
Carol Seymour and Ginny Perkins had a ‘marathon’ day on Sunday, visiting the two prisons at Likasi. They had taken food supplies and the prisoners were so grateful to have a good meal – ‘needs are horrendous at present.’ After the ministry, many wanted to follow Jesus. Thank God that both physical and spiritual needs were met through these visits. Pray for conditions to improve. TV/Radio recordings went well last Thursday. Thank God for this ministry, and for more testimonies that have come in of blessings brought by the broadcasts – God saving, healing and protecting people. Pastor Mwambay (on media team) will be leaving in a few days on another relief trip. Pray for God to protect and guide him. Carol and Ginny plan to visit another Bike Evangelism village church on Sunday. Pray for them.
Sam Livingston is doing well at Nyangombe. He reports that it is raining every day. (No water shortages here!) Unfortunately, the weekend youth camp had to be cancelled – Sam only found out the day before it was due to start. However, he expects the next one to take place as planned next week, starting Friday 16 Nov. Pray for all the preparations for this camp, at a village called Mujila, to go ahead well. Sam is doing a lot of media work on computer these days to help with communications. Pray for God’s blessing on this ministry.
Wanderley & Rosaria da Silva are very busy with the pre-school – ‘running around trying to prepare everything for the end-of-year party on Saturday’. Pray for everything to go well and for the children and their families to retain a lasting blessing from all that has been taught in pre-school this year. New immigration laws are making it harder for missionaries to stay in Mozambique. Next year the da Silvas will have to register their CAM work at national level in order to be able to renew their residence visas. Pray for missionaries who are currently struggling to stay in Mozambique.
Daniel Habtey had a good week, speaking at a meeting in Birmingham about his ministry and then, on Sunday, giving training to Eritrean and Ethiopian church leaders in Sheffield. Praise God for these opportunities. This weekend, Daniel will be flying out to Ethiopia. He will visit a refugee camp and also give training to Eritrean church leaders who can now cross the border into Ethiopia for the first time in about 18 years. Pray for Daniel to know God’s anointing on all his ministry in Ethiopia.
Gordon & Sybil McKillop are preparing to fly back to Zambia on 16 November. On 15th, Sybil will have laser treatment on her eyes (and will not then need to use drops). Pray for their last ten days in UK, as they fit in seeing family and friends and doing their shopping and packing.
CAM supports Church Planters in ETHIOPIA, enabling them to take the Gospel into unreached areas.
Thank You! Your prayers, interest and support are greatly appreciated by all our personnel.
