Thank you for your prayers last weekend. Although the students did not do anything on Sunday, they had many opportunities to speak with people and lead Bible studies on Friday and Saturday. And now we have more opportunities this weekend. Glen will preach at Talua (2 Thes 1:3-10) and Sam will preach at Tata School (Luke 12:49-53); the other students in the mentoring group will help in the services. We have also been asked to preach and teach in several nearby villages over the next month – a real answer to our prayers as we try to encourage and train the students!
It is often difficult preaching at Talua. Staff are meant to be a model to the students, who meet in groups each Tuesday to discuss the sermon. Pray that this Sunday Glen will faithfully teach the Scriptures for God's glory and not his own. Pray that students and staff will be reminded that Christ is coming to punish those who do not know him, and that they will trust fully in Christ for salvation, persevere even through hard times, and grow in their desire to proclaim Christ where he is not yet known.
Yours in Christ,
Glen, Rachael, Sophie, Bethany, Matthew & Lachlan
