Thank you for joining us in prayer this week.  We acknowledge together that God is greater, that he is our hope and comfort and that he reigns over all things. 

GORDON & SYBIL MCKILLOP - ZAMBIA

Above:  Children's camp where 1600 gathered.

We are thrilled to have completed an extremely full annual program at Nyangombe in November.   Around 4,500 men, women and children have attended teaching, youth camps, children's camps and Bible Schools during 2019.  

As always there are the things which stick in our minds like a young boy who had been introduced to charms and witchcraft at a young age by an uncle and during a youth camp was completely delivered by the Lord and spent the rest of the night in a deep sleep. He said that he did not recall when he last slept well!   A colleague from the same area told me yesterday that the young lad is totally changed, attends a local church and is fully active in the youth group.  The Lord is good.  

Our annual program for 2020 has just been arranged.  Please join with us in prayer for everyone who comes to Nyangombe will be impacted by the Lord and will grow in the knowledge of and love for the Saviour.

CHRISTMAS APPEAL 2019

Pray for the partnership with our global partner in Mumbai as we work towards  planting a preschool, kids club and then a church in the Dharavi slum.

This Christmas we are inviting people to give their best gift, to partner with us and to see this become a reality for the children living there.

IAN & KATIE MOORE - MACEDONIA

Celebrations:
-    The successful mission trip to Romania (read more below).
-    Increasing opportunities to build bridges into the local community.
-    The openness of many people to talk about Jesus. 

Challenges:
-    Local team. We are seeking to train and empower more local Christians in mission. 
-    The orthodox traditions which seem to act as a barrier to people connecting with Jesus. 
-    The influence of Islam on the Albanian population which makes it very difficult to get breakthrough.

MACEDONIANS ON MISSION TO ROMANIA

Ian Moore is an Elim missionary in Macedonia.  At the end of November, Ian and a small team of Macedonians from the Oaza church in Skopje went on mission to Sardu, Romania to serve Liz Face and the team there.
 
The team were involved in practical works such as clothing distribution to  the villagers as well as sharing testimony to the children’s groups and ministering in local churches.

Ian shared:  ‘We had a great time and it was fantastic to see how the team really got involved and tried some new things. They really allowed God to use them and we hope they have made a big impact.’

Please pray for the team and other Christians in Macedonia that are being trained in mission.
