Remember: PRAYER MATTERS
Byron and Lyn Johannesen (Colombia, DPG Day 4)
Byron and Lyn have returned to Australia as Lyn’s father had a heart attack last week, and they arrive in Brisbane early on Tuesday morning. Pray for his ongoing recovery.
Paul and Debbie Howells (Philippines, DPG Day 10)
Pray for Paul and Debbie as they set up a new work centre in Cagayan de Oro. Here they will finish their translation and work on materials needed by the churches. Pray that Jubab will safely join Paul and Debbie in a few days.
Colin and Marg (Restricted Access, DPG Day 24)
Pray for Colin as he organises two training workshops — one in NZ (July) and the other in Thailand (August). Pray that attendees will be challenged and encouraged during these workshops. Praise God that Marg has had a good class this year. Pray for a teacher to be available to teach grade one/two. Praise God for new believers, and for those who have saved others through their living testimonies. Pray for His strength and peace amidst difficult situations for all believers.
Simon and Anni (Restricted Access, DPG Day 25)
Pray for the nine students of the Bible translation class as they graduate this month. Pray for them as they wait on the Lord’s direction regarding their future ministry. Pray for the people groups that Simon and his co-worker met on their survey trip. Pray for more opportunities for Christian workers to serve amongst these people.
Debbie Denny (AMT, DPG Day 29)
Kevan’s father had a fall recently, and while in hospital was incidentally found to have a pancreatic mass pressing on his liver. The mass will be removed today, 22 May (that’s why this GPM is going out a day early). Pray for wisdom for the surgical team, and peace for Kevan and Debbie, who are still in Vietnam at this stage. Andrew, Kevan’s brother-in-law, is looking after things here. Pray that Kevan’s father makes a good recovery, and that the mass won’t be serious. Pray for Debbie who had a fingernail torn off a few days ago; pray that the nailbed won’t get infected.
Ross and Lea Ginn (ex-Philippines)
Although her knee surgery was deemed successful, Lea is still in a lot of pain and will need a knee replacement. Pray for good management of her knee and back pain. Pray for Ross as he’s admitted on 26 May (their 45th wedding anniversary) for his back operation on 27 May. Pray for wisdom for his surgical team, and pray that he makes a swift and uncomplicated recovery. Praise God that Ross and Lea have been able to lead a Bible study group in Hobart Village, as well as reach out to the community with the gospel. Pray for the ROC Ministries team leaving on 3 June for the Philippines to build a four-bedroom missionary training staff house for the ROC Bataan Project.
