Bethany Kapezya (DR Congo, DPG Day 1)
Pray for patience as she waits for the final report regarding the school situation and for the best possible outcome.


Gary and Louise Bryar (Brazil, DPG Day 4)

Praise God they arrived safely in Mindanao. Pray for ongoing safety for them and those in the volcano-affected areas.


Elizabeth Pfeifer (Philippines, DPG Day 10)
Pray for Liz as she gives a presentation at a Mission Awareness Program in Ballarat on 23 February. Pray for her to continue to apply what she learnt at a ‘transformation program’ for SIL leaders in Thailand in December.


Isaac and Eileen Gordon (Australia, DPG Day 12)
Praise God for the completed renovations at Brewarrina church. Praise God for a family from Granville who have helped with the ministry. Pray for Isaac and Eileen as they continue to minister to Brewarrina and surrounding communities. Pray for the River Conventions in April, when they will visit Goodooga, Weilmoringle, Collarenebri, Walgett, Lightning Ridge and Enngonia. Pray for Eileen and her family as one of her sisters died last year, and in November her mother had a stroke, then was diagnosed with cancer. It has been a sad start for Brewarrina, with the passing of two community members. Pray for the Lord to comfort their families and to convict the hearts of the unsaved.


Gavin and Janet Petersen (Portugal, DPG Day 14)
Pray for opportunities in the English Now and SPEAK classes and conversions in the Discovery Bible studies. Pray for an evangelistic afternoon on 22 February to address ‘What is the Bible?’ and ‘What do I do with it?’ Pray for the organisation of the International Portuguese Bible Conference (22-26 July) in São Tomé and Principe. The theme is ‘The work is not yet completed.’


Daniel and Emily (Restricted Access, DPG Day 22)
In mid-December, they had to take unexpected and quite sudden medical leave from their host country and return to Australia for a period of time. While it has been difficult to be in this season of waiting, they are thankful in these past two weeks to have finally begun specialist appointments, taking steps to a clearer future. Please pray for wisdom for all involved as they determine when they can return to the field. Please pray for patience and humble hearts as they reflect and learn from their experiences. Please pray for good communication with all those around them.


Jono and Marie (Restricted Access, DPG Day 24)
Thank God for Marie’s health, and pray for continued improvement. Thank God for providing a house in Lismore and thank God for the welcome they’ve received in the community. Pray for their boys to continue to transition well.


Simon and Ann (Restricted Access, DPG Day 25)
Pray for Ann as she continues to teach the campus pre-schoolers. Pray for Simon as he defends his doctoral thesis in early February; pray that the thesis will bless many people.
