MUSTARD SEED JERSEY PRAYER UPDATE OCTOBER 2017
In Jersey we are getting ready for the busiest time of our year with the Christmas shoebox appeal and all that that involves. Pray various logistical problems will sort out. Pray for strength & energy that we will need.
Each year we struggle to have enough Christmas shoeboxes for the 12-16 age range. This year we have been asked for a large number of boxes for this age group – please pray we receive enough boxes to meet the need.
ROMANIA PRAYER POINTERS:
MUSTARD SEED ROMANIA (MSR):
Alex Stroie has asked that we will pray that the applications for change of use for the Casa Mabel site will go ahead speedily and successfully and that there will be sufficient bookings this summer to make it successful so that with the profits more non-paying children and young people can benefit.
Ken and Florence (retired pastors) will be returning to Romania for several weeks in October/November. Pray for them as they travel and that they will blessed by their time in Romania and that they will be a source of blessing to those they meet.
KATHY LANGSTON OUTREACHES:
Now Kathy has left Romania and returned to Canada, the running of the various outreaches is being done by others. For a number of years, special Christmas shoeboxes have been packed for a number of orphaned children & young people who have special needs. Please pray for better communication with those now liaising with us especially on this project.
MORE JERSEY PRAYER POINTERS:
This year’s Christmas appeal focusses on 3 areas of need in Romania: the shoeboxes, money to purchase food including bread and money to provide winter fuel. Please pray for a spirit of generosity.
Groups from St Pauls Church and Beaulieu Convent School plan to visit Romania to assist with the Christmas distributions. Both groups are working hard to raise funds to ease suffering – pray God’s blessing on those endeavours.
Last month I asked for prayers that there would be sufficient collectors – now we appear to have enough including a number of new volunteers.
Please pray for WISDOM for us as we receive various requests for help, that we will discern where the greatest need is and follow God’s leading.
We really do believe that PRAYER CHANGES THINGS, and that many blessings are directly linked to prayer. Please continue to bless us with your prayers ~ both us in Jersey and those on the “cutting edge” in Romania, who often benefit as a result of what happens in Jersey.
