We always appreciate prayer for us as we share in meetings regarding the work of FML. Our team in Kenya and Uganda have opportunities to do this and really value your support for them as they introduce others to the ministry. Here in Northern Ireland, William and I also appreciate you holding us up before the Lord as doors are opened for us to share about FML and God's work in Africa. This week we have a booking for a ladies' meeting and another few meetings are in the diary for the month of November. It will be a busy few weeks. We are thankful for bookings that are steadily coming in for next year; with another one today.
Please continue to remember the various aspects of the work. The Bible Lessons which are circulating across Kenya and Uganda among thousands of children. The volunteers who mark these lessons. Those who evangelise and teach the Word of God to the boys and girls. The administration work which takes place in our offices. The writing of training courses. The procedure of coming up with new ideas and initiatives, praying them through and then putting them into practice. The plans for future trips; from the UK to Africa and for the local people on the ground as they travel also. Remembering also our new library facility as it is promoted.
The email course is another ministry and we would ask you to pray for the students currently enrolled as they are at the stage of completing final assignments. We trust certificates will be awarded in January following completion of assignments and marking by the end of the year.
As the school year draws to a close in Kenya in particular, please pray for the young people who are sitting exams in the coming days. Today I have been specifically asked by a School Principal in Nairobi to remember the few individual students in his school who started their final national exams today which will enable them to join High School. Please pray for Caleb, Hosea, two called Kevin and Vivian.
Please also remember the ongoing financial needs of the work. God is faithful in supplying. Pray concerning a few needs which are pressing at the moment including rent for our Nairobi office.
Thank you for your ongoing prayers.
