Alf & Hilary Cooper in Chile ask prayer for their organizing of a massive rally of evangelical churches outside the presidential palace in the main square of Santiago.  The rally is held on 30 May and “could be a major breakthrough in the cause of revival”.


A number of events deserving our prayers take place this weekend:


the 50th Diocesan Synod of the Spanish Reformed Episcopal Church (IERE) in Madrid.  Pray for the Diocesan Plan to be well received and also for Sue Woodcock, just back from her UK visit, in whatever diocesan role God has for her alongside her work in Sabadell and as an archdeacon.


the annual Paraguay conference of the Association of Christian Schools International (ACSI).  FEISA Teacher Training College will run two workshops for early years teachers on behavioural problems in children and on planning projects to fit in with the Ministry of Education’s new early years curriculum.  Pray for these workshops, for Gloria de Álvarez and Ana Demestri leading them, and for all who attend to be blessed, encouraged and challenged to become better teachers.


also in Asunción a Marriage Encounter weekend.  Pray for its leaders and the participating couples, for healing, renewal and enrichment of marriages.


a regional training course for indigenous church leaders held in Santa Teresa in the Argentine Chaco.  Pray for coordinator René Pereira and all involved.


Finally, please remember Ian Meldrum who arrives for UK leave on Wednesday 27th.  His wife Siméa and the family continue their work in Olinda; she and two of their sons will come here in late June.  And John Wigfield completes his short lecturing tour in Brazil and Paraguay, setting off home on Sunday.
