Please praise God for the dedication of those who work as employees or as volunteers within the Monte Horebe organisation.  Give thanks that Monte Horebe continues to be a beacon of light and hope in an impoverished community and that it propounds the Gospel through all its works: church, crèche, school, sponsorship of children; dental surgery; Health Express; football and volleyball schools; youth group; outreach to Caçador and to other parts of Brazil. Give thanks too that so many people, in Northern Ireland and elsewhere, are supportive of the work of Monte Horebe both practically and prayerfully;4 employees of Monte Horebe will graduate from university in December 2010.

Please pray: that school Principal Shia soon returns to full health and that she will be able to develop the Community Kitchen project as originally planned:  Also that mission directors Bebeto and Suely Arraújo and their family enjoy continued good health and remain free from threat or actual harm.


As we praise God for his provision for Saint Andrew’s College during 2010, we pray for rest for the staff over the holidays, for safe travelling for the mission partners, and that God will provide Christian teachers to teach Maths, Computing, and Business Studies at IGCSE and AS level.
