INDIA: ACGC Executive Director Rev Ron Thomas and his wife Jan visit Guindy from 2 to 9 July, to fellowship with Immanuel and Rani and Mission staff and visit and have discussions with the Mission’s partners in ministry, including the AC Conference and the Fellowship of Blessed Hope Churches. Please pray for health and safety and positive, helpful meetings.
INDIA: All going well, the agreement between the Mission and the AC Conference will have been signed on 26 June. Pray that the next step, which is the sale of the jointly owner land at Guindy, will proceed quickly and smoothly this month. There are several important reasons that it be completed in the first half of this month (July).
INDIA: The Advent Christian Conference of India holds its General Body (Annual) meeting late this month at which new Executive Committee members will be elected. Pray that the meeting’s choices for these positions will be the Lord’s choices. Pray especially for President Rev M Barnabas as he leads the meeting.
INDIA: The Fellowship of Blessed Hope Churches holds its General Body (Annual) meeting late this month, at which new officers and some committee members are to be elected. There is a “rebel” faction causing great concern and seeking election, whilst those loyal to the Lord’s work are also putting forward candidates for the positions of President, Secretary,Treasurer and Vice President. Please pray for wisdom for pastors and members as they vote.
MYANMAR: Pray especially for the four organisations which make up the Advent Christian Conference of Myanmar and their leaders. Between them they are caring for more than a hundred orphaned children in their homes and homes of some members. The beginning of the school year brings substantial expense and pressures.
THAILAND: Praise the Lord for positive results from health check-ups for John and Maeo Middlewood. Pray for wisdom and patience for them as they act as foster parents to the seven girls they have taken into their home for a year as they attend an English program at college. Pray also for the girls – that the Lord will draw them to commit their lives to Him.
MALAYSIA: Pray especially for Ruth Devairakkam and Wilfred in Kluang – they are having difficulties with the AC Conference’s bank account and other “official” pressures to the sustaining of their ministry.
