CAM INTERNATIONAL – NEWSLINK – 9 April 2019
‘Pray in the Spirit on all occasions with all kinds of prayers and requests… and always keep on praying’ (Eph 6:18)
Thank you for joining us in prayer this week. Here’s our latest news to help you praise and pray for the work of CAM International in Africa and in UK.
Wanderley & Rosaria da Silva, based in Chimoio, are helping with relief aid in the aftermath of Cyclone Idai, which hit Mozambique nearly 4 weeks ago. Apparently, cholera and malaria are on the increase, making the situation more critical. Pray that those suffering may be treated promptly and that these diseases may be contained. Tomorrow (Weds), Wanderley will be visiting the district of Nhamatanda to take more aid. They are trying to buy 3 tons of beans and corn for planting, to distribute to families who have lost all their crops. Pray that they may find the necessary supplies, and pray for safety and protection as they travel out to the devastated areas.
Sam Livingston was greatly blessed last weekend as he ministered at a Youth Camp at a place called Mapunga. He saw many young people committing their lives to Christ, with some delivered from evil spirits and addictions. There were opportunities for the youth to ask questions and to understand better how God’s Word applied to their lives. Praise God for this powerful time. Pray that these young folk will remain faithful and see God do great things in their lives. This week Sam will be giving some training to Sunday school teachers and then, at the weekend, he has a Youth Camp at Mujila. Pray for safe travel, good weather and another great time of ministry, seeing more young lives transformed.
Lloyd Rowlands ministered at the Living Waters church last Sunday and it went well. Next Sunday he will be at Kawama Village, on the Likasi road. Pray for God to use Lloyd to challenge and encourage this church fellowship. Pray that he will have regular opportunities to speak at churches and take seminars. On the practical side, he has been busy in the orchard and working on the local river bank to prevent erosion. Pray for wisdom and strength for all these tasks around the Centre. Pray for Sandy, back in Adelaide, Australia.
Daniel Habtey is on the move again, visiting Eritreans in other countries. Praise God for the many invitations and opportunities to encourage these displaced people. This week Daniel will be in Dubai and Kuwait. Pray for him as he shares with fellowships there. Next week, he is visiting Germany for ministry over Easter to an Eritrean church. Pray for safe travel and a fruitful time.
David Womersley is in hospital in Kettering following a fall over 2 weeks ago. Last Saturday his son Stephen reported that David had ‘deteriorated with a kidney infection and sepsis’ and was on a 5-day treatment to deal with the sepsis. Pray for his recovery from this serious infection.
Carol Seymour and Ginny Perkins ministered at Manor Park (E London) on Sunday and the people were very happy with their visit. They will be in the Nottingham area this weekend and will speak at churches in Bulwell on Sunday and Arnold on Tuesday. Pray for God’s blessing on their ministry and on their visits to several old friends in the area.
Gordon & Sybil McKillop are on leave in Scotland and have been very busy this past week helping their daughter Susan, who gave birth to Erin Isabella a few weeks prematurely last Wednesday. There were some complications for them both, but mother and baby are now doing well and hope to go home tomorrow. Gordon was able to look after the two older children (on holiday from school) during the days while Sybil was with Susan and the baby. (Gordon said he was looking forward to having a rest back at Nyangombe!) Pray for Susan and Erin to do well and for husband Willie, Ethan and Emily to know God’s blessings too. Pray for Gordon preparing to leave on 16 April to return to Zambia; pray for Sybil as she remains for another month to help Susan.
Thank you so much for all your prayers, which encourage and bless our workers.
