Walter Barrientos, pastor of the church in Tarija, Bolivia, has been suffering from throat cancer . This Friday is Walter’s 40th birthday; let’s pray with and for him and Sandra, that God will be close at this challenging time.


Give thanks for the recent Women’s Encounter in La Serena, Chile, which, says Pastor Pablo Zavala, surpassed all expectations both in number of participants and in outcome, with several women coming to church as a result of the event.  Pablo & Pamela ask prayer for this ongoing ministry and for a way to reach men for the Lord.


On Thursday the school year ends at St Andrew’s and the Annexe schools in Paraguay.  Praise God for all achieved and pray for a thoroughly refreshing summer break for all staff and pupils.


Finally, a number of events to pray for this weekend:


Synod of the Diocese of Chile in Temuco (Friday-Sunday)

Marriage Encounter at La Trinidad, Las Condes, in Santiago, Chile (Friday-Sunday)

Service of blessing in Río Verde, in the Paraguayan Chaco, on the new church of San Mateo, which is led by Ed & Marie Brice (Sunday).
