Alan and Isabel Knott (Colombia, DPG Day 4)
Alan taught on Romans 10 in early May. Praise God for the nine young men who were keen to understand the Scriptures — pray that they have opportunities to teach others in their home assemblies. Praise God for the profitable time at last weekend’s Annual regional Elders’ Conference. Pray for the work in Mistrató, which has stalled due to an internal disagreement. Praise God that eight unsaved neighbours attended the recent monthly gospel meeting at Santa Rosa assembly; pray for their salvation. Pray for Alan and Isabel to travel safely on 18 June to the Australian embassy in Bogotá in order to renew Alan’s passport.
Farid and Parila Qurbanpur (QLD, DPG Day 11)
Pray that Peter and Farid’s citizenship applications will be approved soon, as Farid and Parila are going to IBCM7 later this month. Praise God that Parila and the other children have their citizenships.
Daniel and Candide Weekes (France, DPG Day 14)
Praise God that we're able to get into deeper conversations with our neighbours and that they are asking more and more questions. Praise God we've been able to show them the difference between faith and religion. Praise God for the men's spiritual wilderness retreat, which went really well.
Gavin & Janet Petersen (Portugal, DPG Day 15)
Gavin and Janet are serving at Leiria through evangelism, church planting, teaching, training and discipleship. Their 20-year-old car is becoming unreliable and is continually requiring maintenance. Due to the high cost of vehicles in Portugal, Craigmore Christian Church has opened a Car Fund for the Petersens. A target of $30,000 has been set to allow for the purchase of a reliable vehicle suitable for ministry. Donations can be sent directly to Craigmore Christian Church as per the following bank details:
BSB: 065 137
Acct: 009 008 62

Thank you for your consideration.

Pray for the safety of Wendy and other attendees who are travelling this weekend and next week to the IBCM7 conference in Rome (24-28 June).
Wesley and Esther (Restricted Access, DPG Day 23)
Due to unrest following the death of a young man from Mamit, many non-Papuan staff were evacuated from Mamit. Pray for those who were not able to travel away. Pray especially that tribal law (revenge killings) won’t occur and that people will be safe from violence.
