Ruth & Efraim Vilella moved last week from Recife in northeast Brazil to Porto Alegre in the south. Please pray for them in their adjustment, for Efraim’s work and for Ruth as she explores possible projects in which she can use her skills and experience. Remember too the House of Hope project in Recife and those in leadership there. Ruth hopes to visit fairly regularly.
This weekend a Marriage Encounter event takes place in La Serena in Chile. Pray for the couples attending, that their marriages may be refreshed and enriched, and uphold the leaders, including pastor Pablo & Pamela Zavala.
This weekend is also the 140th anniversary of the Anglican church in Fray Bentos, Uruguay. Pray for the celebratory services and events, and especially for pastor Gonzalo & Leticia Soria in their oversight of this congregation.
Early in October Neill Brice, son of mission partners Ed & Marie in Paraguay, marries his fiancée Deysi. Pray God’s blessing on this wedding and for a long and happy Christian marriage.
Finally, flying in from Argentina on Monday are Latin Partner Mario Ágreda and Bishop Greg & Sylvia Venables. Mario is making his first visit to the UK and is spending most of October here visiting churches and groups (including the Sheffield Area Roadshow), while Greg is coming principally for a primates’ meeting the following week. Please keep them all in your prayers.
