Dec/13: Mission Partners
Charles and Jocelyne MontaguArab World Ministries
Charles' work around use of internet and mobile phone technologies to communicate with, encourage and teach Arab seekers and new Christians. Currently, as well as the ongoing work of answering questions through email, he is developing an online Bible study. Please pray for all those who are engaging with the Bible study material, and that Charles will make good progress with it's development which has been slower than planned.
Charles reminds us to pray for Christians in Egypt who he says, “have set a wonderful example by not retaliating to the destruction of churches and Christian property following the army's removal of President Morsi".
We thank God that he has enabled them to exercise restraint. Charles also asks us to pray for Slimane in Egypt and Mehdi (from Morocco) in Brazil. Please pray that they will not waver in their faith and that they become part of Christian communities who can encourage them. We sometimes forget the sacrifice made by our mission partners and the effect it can have on their families.
So we give thanks with Charles that Edward, Emily and Robert are doing well at their studies (Edward and Emily in university, Robert in year 11 at school) and in their churches. Please pray that God will continue to bless them and for Jocelyne who works in AWM reception.
Overseas Mission Committee
We are a small team in St George's and this is the time of year when we make decisions on what grants to give to our long term mission partners. Please pray for us that we use the money entrusted to us wisely, and for all our mission partners that God will provide the financial resources needed for the coming year.
This is an exciting time for us; we are in the process of adopting two new families as mission partners. We will share full details in the New Year, in the meantime please pray that we, the new families and their mission agencies will all work together well as we draw up agreements and the details of how we can best support them.
