Richard and Anne Hoyt (Chad, DPG Day 1)
Praise God for the safe arrival of another grandson, Silas, born to Kristin and Tim. Pray for Anne as she stays in Australia to help care for her father, Howard Wilson. Pray for Janet Murray, David and Lucy Morrison, and Aline as they keep the ACACIA ministry going while Anne’s away. Pray for them as they and the Acacia centre ladies run a three-day vacation Bible school in August. Praise God for the ministry of compassion through meals by ‘Sally’; praise God for her perseverance and servant heart. Pray for the new believers around her to grow spiritually. Pray for a miraculous restoration in the split in the EET, as the situation still hasn’t resolved.
Jason and Kim Job, Tim and Anna Southcott (Timor-Leste, DPG Day 12)
Due to a GA8 aircraft accident in Sweden, all GA8 flights have been suspended, including those flown by MAF in Timor-Leste. Pray for wisdom for the CASA and European investigators who are investigating the plane involved in the accident. Pray for the ill and injured people of Timor-Leste who will need to rely upon road and sea transport until Jason and Tim can fly again. Pray for the families of those killed in the crash in Sweden that they may be comforted as they mourn.
Colin and Marg (Restricted Access, DPG Day 24)
Pray for Colin as he prepares five devotional messages at the annual conference in Thailand (27/7–3/8), and as he prepares and leads sessions on multicultural teamwork with young Asians in the Philippines who are considering cross-cultural service (5-10/8). Praise God for accreditation being given to Marg’s school.
Jono and Marie (Restricted Access, DPG Day 24)
Pray for Jono and Marie as they have decided to return home in late October due to Marie’s medical condition. Pray for Marie’s health, and for the family during this difficult transition.
Simon and Ann (Restricted Access, DPG Day 25)
Praise God that the commentaries are almost all edited (just waiting for 1 Timothy) and ready to be published.
CAMPIALBA: Full Time Workers’ Camp, which takes place at Campialba in beautiful Hervey Bay, provides a time of restoration, fellowship, encouragement and teaching for those involved in full-time Christian ministry, and also for those who wish to fellowship with full-time Christian workers. It is a camp designed for those working in a full-time, unpaid ministry capacity for assemblies in Qld. We invite you to nominate (https://campialba.corsizio.com/c/5d2fe5a088c9305f95827fc2) your Full Time Workers for the annual Full Time Workers’ Camp.
For full time workers (FTW) on no fixed income, there is NO COST for this camp. This is paid for firstly by a heavy subsidy from Campialba, and secondly we ask that the sponsoring assembly contribute to the cost of the camp. This suggested contribution is $200 per adult. This covers all accommodation and all meals for the entire camp.
We encourage you to consider which FTW(s) you believe could benefit from this camp, particularly those who may be home on furlough in January 2020. Once we receive the nomination we will make contact with your nominated workers to get everything organised. If there are also non-FTWs in your congregation who show interest in attending, we would encourage you to support them should they wish to attend. They can register simply by visiting our website and following the registration link.
If you have any questions or would prefer to do this nomination over the phone, please contact Terrence at Campialba on 07 4124 3396.
