Remember: PRAYER MATTERS
Gary and Louise Bryar (Brazil, DPG Day 4)
Sorry for the typo in PM18.10 — they celebrated their 50th not 60th wedding anniversary.
Gail Thomson (Colombia, DPG Day 5)
Pray that Gail will get her energy back soon after recovering from a viral infection.
Phil and Sandy Jones (Mexico, DPG Day 5)

Ian and Leann Buckley (Nepal, DPG Day 9)
Pray for a Badi school they recently visited. Pray that the children will continue to be educated and that they can be transformed by the gospel. Pray for a nine-year-old boy who is being treated for a neglected large burn to his thigh. Thank God it’s not infected, but the path to recovery will be significant. Praise God the Sangachowk Church land was purchased in mid-February.
John and Kathy Harris (Netherlands, DPG Day 14)
Praise God that Safe Haven’s renovations are completed, and it is taking its first residents (the first woman moved in on 7 March). Pray for Marije as she leads this ministry.

Gavin and Janet Petersen (Portugal, DPG Day 15)
Pray for the GBU students who had two outreach events last week. Praise God for positive responses — pray for Diogo, Mario and Maria who especially showed interest. Pray for those with whom Gavin and Janet are doing Discovery Bible Studies — Regina and Pedro (Sunday) and João (Wednesday). Pray that Pedro and João (who’s blind) will continue to ask questions and have a better understanding of the gospel. Pray for the nine students at the SPEAK Basic English class where Janet and Gavin are the volunteer teachers. Pray for growth of friendships and opportunities to share Christ. Pray for Idalena, Ferdinando and Vera who are unsaved, and who attend the English class in Claudio’s home on Thursday evenings.

Les and Kay Loader (PNG, DPG Day 17)
Pray for Les as he travels tomorrow to PNG to oversee the distribution of materials (nails, hammers, rice, bibles), much of which was bought by Walter Wetzel (PNG, DPG Day 18). Gordon Cowell (AMT, DPG Day 29) and Les will be helping CBM set up the rejuvenated wholesale depot in Lae. Les will also meet Shane Ginn (QLD, DPG Day 19) in Port Moresby to plan construction.
Simon and Anni (Restricted Access, DPG Day 25)
Praise God that Simon has finished commentaries (written by him in the local language) on James, Galatians, I and II Timothy, and he’s working on I John.

Alan is working well in the clock shop and Tania and Rachael are studying Travel & Tourism and Primary teaching, respectively.
Russ and Ruth Keanalley (ex-Thailand, DPG Day 26)
Please pray for the opening of the Phrasiri church building this Friday (23rd March) at 5pm Thailand time.

Pray that God will be glorified, and that the building will be used for His glory.
