Phil and Sandy Jones (Mexico, DPG Day 5)
Pray for Sandy as she has her follow-up PET scan tomorrow. Pray for the RenovArte team to have wisdom as they work through some issues. Pray for the salvation of neighbours José Manuel and Itzel.


Fiona Thomas (Cambodia, DPG Day 7)
Pray for Fiona as she goes to Phnom Penh today to collect her passport, then exit and re-enters on the weekend to get her visa.


Wendy Strachan (Specialist, DPG Day 22)
The applications for the Leadership Experience 2020 will open on April 1 – contact Wendy for more information if you know a children’s ministry leader who may be interested. Please pray that changes being made to the gcfleadership.org website will be ready by that date. The LE curriculum team has just finished meetings in USA and have done an amazing job in synthesising the work of LE 2016 and LE 2018 so that in future LE can be reproduced by LE alumni and other experienced children’s ministry leaders in a local context. Wendy is enjoying the process of transitioning out of her LE responsibilities over the next two years and it is a delight to work with people who share the same passion for leadership development.


Richard and Rachel Reed (ex-Zambia)
Pray for Richard and Rachel as they visit Zambia for 2.5 weeks from the end of March, including 10 days back at Kalene Hospital.


Pray that AMT’s new server will run smoothly.


Pray for those grieving in Christchurch. Pray for the recovering victims and their families and friends, the hospital staff (surgeons, nurses, rehabilitation services), and the counsellors for victims, their families and emergency personnel. Pray that Christians and churches worldwide will respond with compassion, grace and wisdom during this painful and difficult time.
