Praise God that John and Remy celebrated five years of Wycliffe service in February. Praise God for safekeeping during bushfire season. Praise God for good progress in Bible translation despite COVID-19 disruptions. Praise God for successes in their work in spite of discouraging times. Pray for the biennial Wycliffe staff gathering in May. Pray for good cooperation between mission agencies doing Bible translation, and for smooth coordination between members working from Australia and local translators. Pray for John and Remy to improve their physical fitness. Pray for John as he considers how to make new members aware of cybersecurity issues before they go overseas. Pray for him to balance his energy between various tasks and other responsibilities outside of work. Pray for Remy in her roles as Finance Assistant and Member Budget Coordinator. Pray for two of her colleagues who are going to Vanuatu to serve as Bible translators and literacy workers. Pray for Janelle who is in year 11, helps in Sunday School and has a part-time waitressing job.


John and Kathy Harris (Netherlands, DPG Day 17)
Praise God that Mathilde’s hip operation went smoothly and she’s recovering well. Praise God that Jaap-Jan has transitioned well into iTeams NL and is settling well into his role supporting Bible translation projects. Pray for Amy in her final stages of preparation to leave for service in Uganda; praise God she has enough funds for her plane ticket. Pray for Andreas and Ligia (iTeams NL in Romania) who have had a tough time with their son having a serious kidney problem, as well as heavy church responsibility during COVID restrictions and lockdown. Pray that they can have some respite when they spend two weeks in April in the Netherlands.

Pray for John and Kathy as they teach their last session on Tuesday (for this academic year) of English for Refugees.

Daniel and Emily (Restricted Access, DPG Day 25)
Daniel and Emily are thankful for a great time sharing at different events over the past two weeks. Pray for discernment for them to know God’s timing as to when to return to their host city.
