Brief prayer point: Pray that God will give Glen and the students opportunities to evangelise, teach and preach on field this weekend, despite difficulties in communication with the village.
We are thankful that we just had two lighter weeks during college holidays which gave us time for rest and preparation. Our planned trip to the island of Malekula for one week fell through, so we went to Ipayato village for one night instead. We can see that this was for the best and are now more refreshed.
Over the next week:
• Pray for Glen as he leads college devotions on Ascension Day (Thursday 17th). Pray that students and staff will realise that Jesus has power over every ruler and authority, both physical and spiritual.
• Pray for field this weekend (18th-20th). Glen has prepared two talks and Sam and John should also have teaching prepared, but communication with the village has been poor and this often means people go to their gardens and programs cannot go ahead. Pray that God will give us opportunities to evangelise, teach and encourage people this weekend, either in Avunumbulu or elsewhere.
• We are in the first week of a new term. Pray for safe travel for students still traveling, and for staff to prepare and teach faithfully this term.
• We have just appointed a new Sunday School committee. Pray that students will see the importance of teaching our children and will have fresh enthusiasm and faithfulness in this work. Pray that children at Talua will know what God has done for them through Christ and will have fellowship with him. Pray for wisdom for the committee as they plan lessons for this term. Pray that Glen will be able to encourage and train the committee and Sunday School teachers.
Thanks again for your prayers,
Yours in Christ,
Glen, Rachael, Sophie, Bethany, Matthew & Lachlan Connor
