First, Paul and Sarah Tester give thanks that the youth mission trip to Juliaca in the south of Peru, mentioned in the Prayer Line three weeks ago, went very well. The church plant there is beginning its own Sunday School and Youth Group as a result. Please pray for Rev. Rubén Mancilla and the congregation of St Mary Magdalene’s mission as they seek to grow these ministries.
Thank you too for praying for the Morrisons in Chile. Both Marion and Ary are out of hospital; Marion has had 5 stents and is feeling like a new person. All the family are grateful to the Lord and to all those who have upheld them in prayer.
Richard Crofts of SAMS GB goes into hospital on Thursday for an operation. Please uphold Richard in your prayers. Also in Tunbridge Wells Beryl Round, former PA to Philip Tadman and his predecessor, suffered a stroke on Saturday. Beryl is back home; please pray for her full recovery.
Confirmations take place next Sunday in the church of the Redeemer in La Serena, Chile. Pray for the service, those who are taking this important step, and for pastor Pablo Zavala and his wife Pamela in their ongoing ministry.
Finally, we’ve received the sad news of the sudden death early yesterday of Amy Nicholls, who served as a SAMS missionary in Chile and Brazil with her late husband Edgar. In the latter country they looked after the Boys’ Town orphanage near Petrópolis. As we give thanks to God for Amy, please remember particularly in your prayers her daughter Pam in Canada and for her neighbour and close friend Barbara Kitchin, another long-serving former SAMS missionary.
