Kevin and Eloise Dyer (Specialists, DPG Day 19)
Peter, an African brother in Zambia who is a strong believer and has helped Bright Hope with a lot of their building projects, is being accused of causing the death of another man named Levy who actually died from health issues. The deputy Chief heard the case and ordered Peter and his accusers to go to the witch-finder. Peter refused, as he will not have anything to do with witchcraft. His life could be in jeopardy and we ask that you pray that God would intervene. Bright Hope workers in Zambia are planning to appeal the case and see if they can make a stand against these accusations that involve witchcraft. The new well Bright Hope drilled in Haiti ran dry after a short time. They were deeply disappointed but dug another 10 metres to only find more brackish water. A second well was drilled, but the same thing happened again — no good water. Bright Hope has to do a lot more research to find a good water solution for this needy community.
John and Remy Tan (Specialists, DPG Day 22)
Pray for wisdom in preparing for a Sydney visit during the July school holidays. Pray that they will make good connections, even though their time is short.
John and Sharon Thomson (Specialists, DPG Day 22)
Praise God that Sharon’s dairy allergy has been healed. Praise God that more and more people are using Bloom, which won an award for an enhanced version that can make electronic books with features that include audio descriptions of pictures for the visually impaired. Pray for John and Sharon as they plan their Western US trip — where they should go, how they should travel, and who they can talk to about their ministry
