Piesa and Tamoli leave Misima and arrive in Brisbane on 26 September. Pray for smooth and safe travels and for a fruitful month as they work with Bill and Sandra on translation.
Daniel and Emily (Restricted Access, DPG Day 23)
This continues to be a very stressful period as they process all that has happened in the past few weeks and as they await new visas – this could take at least 2 more weeks. Pray for peace, patience and grace for all in this waiting time. The children are feeling very unsettled especially as the family needs to move to another country in this waiting period, because of the intense smoke caused by the burning of forests. Pray for mercy for those impacted by these forest fires, and that justice will be done.
