‘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. We appreciate your prayer support.

Wanderley & Rosaria da Silva put photos and videos on Facebook of the pre-school’s special event last Friday to celebrate Mother’s Day. The children seemed to be having a great time singing songs to their mothers. Thank God for the blessing this pre-school is bringing to the children and their families. Pray that the Gospel will touch many hearts in the community through its witness.

Gordon McKillop has been busy at Nyangombe, catching up on repairs of items which caused problems while he was in UK. A Ladies’ Convention is currently running, with 115 ladies involved and being blessed. Another Bible School begins on Friday. Pray for God’s anointing on the ministry. Irene Kafweta has arrived at Mukinge Mission Hospital and may require surgery this week. Pray for her. Gordon’s wife Sybil should be arriving at Solwezi on Sunday, along with 2 American visitors. Pray for Gordon as he drives to pick them up.

Lloyd Rowlands has had a very bad sore throat for about a week – the worst he has ever had! As a result, last weekend’s seminar at Kawama Village was cancelled. A number of workers at Living Waters have colds and coughs at present, coinciding with the onset of the cooler dry season, with much colder nights. Lloyd is improving now – pray for his full recovery. He has been taking things easier but still doing jobs around the Centre – tidying up, working in the tree nursery and planting vetiver grass along the river banks to counteract erosion. Pray that Lloyd will be able to keep on top of all the work.

Daniel Habtey will be going to Coventry on Saturday for 2 days with an Eritrean fellowship there. Pray for him to have God’s wisdom and guidance as he seeks to help with some relationship problems in the group which have caused a split.

Kym Delport (CAM Administrator) and her husband Nick arrived back in UK last Sunday after their time in Zimbabwe. Tomorrow the funeral will take place of Kym’s mother, Judith Wall, who passed away on 11 April, after gradually declining over several weeks. Dave Garrard and Andrew Ramsey will attend the funeral at Gloucester Crematorium and Thanksgiving Service in Cheltenham. Pray for Kym’s father, Anton, and all the family at this sad time.

Dave & Ruth Garrard are setting off for Africa once again! They leave on Friday afternoon for Zambia. At the end of the month, Dave will go to Congo for ministry there and later spend a few days in Tanzania. They will be away for 3 months altogether. Pray for them, for Dave with his heavy Bible-teaching schedule and Ruth as she remains in Zambia and ‘keeps house’.

ON LEAVE

Carol Seymour and Ginny Perkins had a good time at churches in Wickford and Debden last Sunday. Yesterday they were packing up goods to take to Wickford today for shipping to Zambia. They will be taking part in a Missions Conference at Croydon New Life Christian Centre, which runs from Sat 11 – Sun 19 May. Pray for them as they share about their work in Congo.

Sybil McKillop will be leaving Scotland on Friday to return to Zambia and join her husband Gordon at Nyangombe. She has been able to stay a few extra weeks in UK to give support to their daughter Susan and her new baby. Pray for Sybil to know God’s strength as she travels and, if all goes to plan, meets her husband Gordon in Solwezi on Sunday.

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