We have been working for some time to simplify our office so more of our time, energy and finance is used in direct ministry. Over these 2 weeks we will be making changes in our office and equipment to make this happen. We also have 2 meetings in this time to debrief and evaluate some of our recent ministry and some planning and practice time with the team for the Nundah after school programs.
Monday 5th – Thursday 8th August
Pray for Wes & the team from Gateway Presbyterian as they run a week of after school programs at Nundah. Pray that they will present the gospel clearly to kids and build good relationships with their parents.
Friday 9th August
On this last day of after school programs, pray for the kids to clearly understand how the gospel message applies to them. Pray too, for a good turnout of parents at the family night in the local church. Pray that this will build ongoing relationships for sharing the message of Jesus with these families.
Monday 12th – Friday 16th August
This week we will be doing final detailed preparation for our SW Qld schools trip. On Wednesday 15th, (Ecca holiday) the Gateway Presbyterian Church is having a family day as a follow-up to last week’s after school programs. Pray for families to attend and for relationships to be established to reinforce the Gospel message.
Sunday 18th – Friday 30th August
Pray for us as Wes and a volunteer travel about 3000km conducting special Religious Education sessions in about 25 small country schools. Most of these are one teacher schools and are in areas where there is no active organised church. Pray for safety as they travel and for effective teaching of the message of Jesus in the schools. Pray too that they will be a blessing both to the teachers and the people they stay with along the way.
