John and Remy Tan (Specialists, DPG Day 22)
John will be in Newtown from 10 to 12 October participating in an inter-mission IT conference. Please pray for the conference: the fellowship, the presentations and the knowledge to be shared. Pray for John as he is scheduled to lead devotions and to speak at one of the technical sessions.
The Finance team’s manager has returned from his Sabbatical leave. Remy continues to facilitate some of the work at Kangaroo Ground while also doing her online studies and looking after Janelle on her own while John travels. Pray for safety for them all.
Pray for the team at Kangaroo Ground through this time of change, with kitchen renovations and many people coming and going in this month of October. In particular, pray for the English Immersion Experience people from Vanuatu and Indonesia: that they may acquire enough fluency in our language to help us to work with theirs.
Our deepest condolences to Miriam (Flack) Palmer and her family on the passing away on 5 October of her mother Joyce (Flack) Jemmett, former missionary to India. The funeral will be on Friday 13 October, starting at Lithgow cemetery at 11.30 am, followed by a thanksgiving service at Lithgow Bible Church (opposite Lithgow Hospital) at 12.30 pm. Miriam’s mother had requested that if any people wanted to purchase flowers they may like instead to donate financially towards Clarence High School and Kollegal Girls' Home in India. There will be a box for this at the Bible Church. For more information please contact Miriam (, 02 6355 4104).
