Bethany Kapezya (DR Congo, DPG Day 1)
Pray that justice will be done in the continuing school situation that Bethany faces (PM19.36). Thank God for signs of hope.


Tess (Restricted Access, DPG Day 24)
Pray for Tess as she meets people with whom she’ll be working in West Asia, and as she begins to learn the culture and language. Her commendation is in the October Serving Together.


Simon and Ann (Restricted Access, DPG Day 25)
Praise God for the great news that those who run the most widely used Bible app in this country are planning to include the commentaries that Simon has been working on. This will ensure widespread distribution of these Bible tools.


Les and Kay Loader (PNG, DPG Day 17)
Pray that the renovations on the CBM bookshop will be completed as soon as possible so that the shop can be fully operational. Pray for Moses as he teaches at Evangelical Church of Papua missions conference and then as he goes to Pori to teach John’s Gospel in the Bible School, and for ongoing impact of a 4 day youth camp which finishes this Tuesday. (Thank God for the work that Jeremy did in organising this.)


Kara McLaughlin (South Africa, DPG Day 2)
Pray that God’s Spirit will be moving in the lives of all who participate in the Carers’ Workshop that will take place in Chinaka B Community (Zimbabwe) all this week. Pray too, for the Regional Support team who will be presenting the topics.


Bill and Sandra Callister (PNG, DPG Day 16)
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.


Allison Howell (Ghana, DPG Day 2)
Allison is in Ghana during September and October. She will work with Rev Dr Ebenezer Blasu in teaching an MTh/PhD course on ‘Theology, Human Need and the Environment’ and fulfil other responsibilities at the Akrofi-Christaller Institute. A trip to northern Ghana is possibility. Pray for these activities and for Allison’s ongoing work in supervising PhD students from various countries.


Wendy Strachan (Specialist, DPG Day 22)
Thank you for your prayers for Wendy’s health. She is resuming work this week.
