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

  • Pray for Louise Mwangi in Kenya, who gave birth to twins Jeremiah and Daniel by caesarean section on 2 April. Pray for a swift recovery for Louise and for good health for all of them. Pray for Louise and Gerald as they adapt to being parents for the first time. Pray that Jeremiah and Daniel would grow up knowing and loving the Lord Jesus.
  • Pray for Nick Algeo in The Gambia as he travels to Guinea Bissau with Adriano, a local pastor and administrator at the bible school where Nick teaches. Nick and Adriano will be teaching at a preaching conference for church leaders from 11 – 14 April. Pray for safety in travel and for an encouraging, productive conference. Pray also for Harriet and children Phoebe and Arthur, who will be staying in The Gambia whilst Nick is away. On 8 and 16 April, Nick and Harriet will be showing The Prince of Egypt and The Jesus Film in their street – pray for good discussions with neighbours off the back of these film showings. From 18 – 21 April the Evangelical Churches of the Gambia have their annual Easter conference and Nick and Harriet will attend with a group from their church: pray for a good time with church family and for opportunities to encourage the young people to live whole-heartedly for Christ.
  • Pray for Kerstin and Thorsten Prill who work at Edinburgh Bible College. They are travelling to Poland 23 – 30 April to teach local church leaders and preach in churches. Pray for Adam and Ben in Poland as they organise the logistics and invite church leaders. Pray that many will attend the talks and that they will equip local people for faithful bible teaching ministry. 
  • Pray for Sena and Jane Ounate-Lare as they run six cooking workshops on Thursday evenings from 18 April. They plan to invite non-believers from their neighbourhood and they will learn how to cook a specific dish followed by a discussion on a biblical theme. Pray also for the international lunch they are organising for after the Easter service on 21 April. Pray for many newcomers to attend and be struck by hearing the true meaning of the Easter story.
  • Pray for the iServe Africa conference in Nairobi, Kenya, taking place 23-26 April. iServe Africa provides Christian apprenticeships for university graduates. All apprentices attend ministry training together three times per year. Alex Maclean will be teaching the apprentices from the book of Job. Pray that it will be effective for shaping the minds of these young people, whatever their futures may be: Christian parents, office workers, pastors, missionaries… There is also a holiday bible club taking place at Alex and Susannah Maclean’s church from 8 – 12 April and Susannah is involved with planning the crafts. Pray that the children who attend will be excited about being Jesus’ disciples.
  • Pray for Joe and Rachel Clarke in Portugal, who are helping with a mission week at Aveiro University 8 – 12 April. Pray for open hearts and minds as they share the gospel with people. April can be the busiest month for the Clarkes so pray that they have extra energy and use their time efficiently and that they manage to have time with their children in the midst of all the busyness.
  • Pray for Steve and Dawn Orange and the children’s club from 11 – 15 April at their church in Brussels, Belgium. Pray for creativity and patience for them, and for safety and clarity in teaching God's love for the world. Pray for new families to hear the gospel on Easter Sunday as a result. Robbie and Lizzie Bellis are also involved in the club. The teaching will be based around John 3:16 – ask God that the children and some of the parents would understand that verse perhaps for the first time.
  • Pray for Tim and Julie Eady who are ending their time in Thailand at the end of April. Tim and Julie have worked for Christ Church Bangkok for the last seven years. Pray that they finish well and have a restful trip around Australia for six weeks before returning to the UK. Tim will be taking up a post as minister at a church in the UK in August.
  • Pray for Mark and Jane Oden who work in Naples, Italy. They are involved in the planning of the second annual conference of the Gospel Coalition Italia. The conference is taking place 12 – 14 April and Don Carson will be speaking. Pray for churches to find a home in this new coalition and for leaders to be trained and equipped for expository preaching.
  • Pray for the Easter-egg hunt being organised by Forte Torre Church in Bologna, Italy on 6 April. Mission partners Louis Palombo and JP and Sue Aranzulla are involved and it will be held in an historic villa on the edge of town. A gospel message will be presented and there will be lots of games. Pray that the Lord brings new families and for opportunities to build relationships and speak boldly to parents. The hope is also that the children would be excited to sign up to the church summer camp and the afterschool club.
