Our mission partners and projects value your prayer support. Here are some of their latest prayer needs:

  • Continue to pray for Peter Harris after he was involved in a road accident in South Africa in October, in which his wife Miranda died. Peter has been recovering well in hospital and, more recently, at a hotel near the sea in Port Elizabeth. He returned to the UK at the end of November – pray for his continued re-adjustment to being home. Pray for ongoing healing, especially for his eyesight, which may take several months to return to normal.
  • Give thanks for the birth of Noah to mission partners Bethanie and Andrew Walker on Friday 15 November. Noah means comfort and rest and their prayer is that he would be able to point to the God of all comfort and source of true rest. Pray for Andrew and Bethanie as they look after their newborn alongside their other three children. Pray that Maia, Emilio and Lucy would adapt well and enjoy having a new baby brother.
  • The Foster family (Luke and Mary with children Barney and Martha) arrived in the UK to start their three month home assignment on 28 November. Pray that they would adjust quickly to life back in the UK and be encouraged by seeing family, friends and partner churches.
  • Pray for Discipling the Next Generation, a Crosslinks project in Rwanda that is led by Jean Ngirimana. The project equips Sunday school leaders with sound theology as well as training them for leading and teaching children. Their annual ‘Big Holiday Club’ runs from 8 to 14 December. 100 children are expected and they will be teaching them about the way God has ordained which people can be saved. The lessons for the children will be in the morning then the 30 leaders will receive training in the evenings, which is aimed at equipping them for year-round children’s ministry. Give thanks to God for financial provision for the event from a UK church. Pray for children to come and that God would grant salvation to those he has chosen.
  • Pray for Julian and Nicky Milson in Valencia, Spain. This will be their first Christmas in Valencia without any other missionary families or visiting family and they anticipate that it may be quite hard/lonely. Please pray that they find their joy and satisfaction in Jesus and that they won’t be pining to be back with UK friends and family. Pray for their Christmas services: a carols by candlelight service in Spanish and an English carol service. Pray that people will bring friends and that the gospel message is heard. Give thanks that their son Theo is having conversations at school with some friends about Jesus.  Please pray for his evangelism and that his friends respond to the gospel.
  • Pray for Trevor and Andrea Watson, who work with Gothenburg International Church in Sweden. Pray for their advent series that is focusing on ‘the grandmothers’ of Jesus: Tamar, Rahab, Ruth and Bathsheba. Give thanks for many great opportunities with some of the families connected with the church – pray for growing friendships and a softening towards the gospel.
  • Pray for Alun and Debbie Burt in South Africa who are running a youth camp 6 -11 December. They have more kids than ever before signed up to attend – almost 300. Pray for the speakers, that they will teach God’s word clearly. Pray for God to work and convict and encourage hearts. Pray for great fellowship between campers and leaders. Pray for safety and efficiency.
  • Pray for Andrew and Eunice Moody, working with South Sudanese refugees in Uganda. Pray that their house build will keep to schedule and that the roof would be on before Christmas. Pray that they will have a good time with their daughter Joy as she is home for her Christmas holidays during December. Pray for the prison ministry team as they prepare Christmas gifts for two nearby prisons.
  • Pray for Gerald and Louise Mwangi in Kenya as they run three camps for teenagers in December. Gerald leads TransformD Discipleship Programme – a Christian gap year programme for Kenyan school leavers – so the December camps aim to teach the young people the word of God and give them a ‘taster’ of what TransformD is about.  The three camps will be in Nairobi (where they live), Nyeri (three hours away) and Mombasa (12 hours away). Pray that the word of God will be preached faithfully and that the teenagers will grow in faith. Pray for recruitment for TransformD 2020 – they are aiming for 30-40 young people.
  • Pray for Julia Snodgrass in Portugal. In the next couple of weeks she'll be meeting up with two of the university Christian Union student leaders to plan the group’s bible studies for next term. Pray for Tiago, Patricia and Julia as they choose a book to study and pray that God would use it mightily to re-shape students’ lives according to his ways. Give thanks for Julia’s progress in learning Portuguese. She can speak and understand a lot more than when she arrived there in September and was able to give a bible talk in Portuguese a couple of weeks ago. Pray for continued progress and that her learning won’t be set back by time in England over Christmas.
