Pray for the Chad Church’s new leadership to work well together in bringing unity.

There is a lot of red tape and Jason has been spending lots of his time visiting different departments to sort it all out. Pray for the elections here in Timor-Leste next Saturday, 12th of May. This is the second round of elections in a year because the first produced a parliament that was so divided that it could not agree on anything, and so was then dissolved.

Pray for wisdom, energy, perseverance and creativity for Kim as she home-schools Sam each day.
