Paul Tester has been really encouraged to see the youth ministry in the Diocese of Peru come on strongly over the last couple of months. Please pray for Lizbeth, the new diocesan youth ministry coordinator, who has made a great start in her new role, and for Paul as he visits Juliaca and Arequipa from 8th -18th October to strengthen the youth ministries in those cities.
On Friday SAMS GB Trustees meet at CMS offices in Oxford. Pray for Chairman Patrick Coghlan and all gathered, that God would guide clearly in their deliberations and decisions.
We were privileged last month to welcome Latin Partner Cristóbal Cerón to the UK from Chile. On Saturday Cristóbal is being ordained deacon in Santiago. Pray for him and for Alejandra and the family on this very special day.
This follows the ordination on 26 September of Alister Morrison as presbyter at his church of St James’, Punta Arenas, in the far south of Chile. Pray for Alister, Julie and family.
Finally, in Paraguay Caroline Gilmour-White has been introduced to a government department which offers training in various skills, including sewing. Pray this contact will result in the training of leaders for sewing workshops and thus propel forward an important ministry much encouraged by Mission Paraguay short-term teams over the past two years.
