We thank God for His continued help to Joyce and Eunice as they serve the Lord in Africa. Eunice has been distributing some Bibles which we give God thanks for. Joyce visited a school on Saturday and we Praise God for the encouraging time she had.
We have also appreciated your prayers over the weekend. On Friday evening we returned to share at a "Fold". We are usually here each year and thank God for those who join in the community room to learn more of God's work. This little group have been a real encouragement to us over the years and we thank God for them. We knew they were really concentrating and had a genuine interest in the ministry as we shared about our mission trip in July and also about some new opportunities.
Saturday, Sunday and Monday we enjoyed representing Feed my Lambs with the stand at a missionary convention in Belfast. It was a real blessing to be able to share about the work and 9 new names were added to our mailing list which is particularly encouraging. We also had been asked to share with the Sunday School and Bible Class on Sunday afternoon. Over 40 children and young people gathered along with their teachers and we had a special time sharing about some of those we work amongst in Africa. They were sent on their way with worksheet and were encouraged to visit the Just for Kids section of our website.
Please continue to pray on for those in Africa who are also seeking to reach out to the local children. Today and tomorrow I plan to mark some more assignments from children's workers who are taking our online child protection course and am thankful for another new student; a Sunday School teacher; who has just enrolled. Am hoping to set up his private study page here on our website today. This allows students to log in and complete their assignments. We thank God that technology; when used correctly; can really help to forward the work of God.
Please continue to pray for us as we meet to finalise some decisions this evening regarding the implementation of new ministries. We also need wisdom in prioritising the needs and distribution of funds. Thank God for His goodness to us in these days. Pray on that He will continue to lead and guide.
