Calvin and Shirley Oule (Uganda, DPG Day 3)
Selah is 10 months and she is healthy and happy. Calvin and Shirley are currently in a fix as their office space is quite busy and noisy making it hard for Selah to go into the office with them. They need someone capable and reliable to look after Selah so that Shirley can leave her at home for 3-4 hours a day, on a couple of days a week, when she goes to work. Selah has a few dry patches of skin which may be infant eczema — pray that they will settle with ointment. Shirley’s Dad’s eyesight is not great and he is in need of possible cataract surgery in two months if his new glasses don’t make his sight any better. Pray that his vision improves.
Byron and Lyn Johannesen (Colombia, DPG Day 4)
Thank God for His protection as Byron and Olmey were robbed at gunpoint when they were on their way to Acevedo and Neiva a few weeks ago. Pray for Christians Julieth and Michael in Neiva, and Karen (whom Michael brought to the Lord) and her family. In the last year several members of Karen’s extended family have accepted Christ; pray that her stepfather, Martin, who welcomes believers to meet in his house, will also be saved. Pray for the believers in Buga; there are about 30 of them and a hall will soon be rented for meetings. Pray for Samuel and Alissa as they continue to administer the Bible Institute. Pray that Alissa will feel better and have more energy soon. Pray for Byron and Lyn to have a restful four months when they return to Australia in September.
Paul and Debbie Howells (Philippines, DPG Day 10)
Praise God that Debbie’s shoulder is recovering well. Pray for her as she has physio and for Paul as he has physio for his leg. Pray for them as they begin the final proof reading of the Talaandig Bible text before it goes to the printers.
Daniel and Emily (Restricted Access, DPG Day 23)
‘We are thankful to have moved into our house and that the problems in the house are slowly being fixed. Jude and Siena continue to settle into school life — please pray for them to have energy and good rest as they deal with language and cultural differences. We need clarity on which visa to apply for because the one we were hoping to get in September is no longer possible to get at this time, and there are added complications for obtaining this visa in the future. We are reminded again of the need for flexibility, which is a real challenge when dealing with all this change. Please pray for strength, good health, and the ability to live one day at a time.’
Colin and Marg (Restricted Access, DPG Day 24)
Pray for Colin as he is part of a team of seven facilitators at a conference in Mongolia. Twenty-two people of nine nationalities, serving mostly in Asian countries, will share the week together outside Ulaanbaatar. The theme is ‘When God speaks into our lives we change’. Pray for an enriching and encouraging time of fellowship. Pray for Marg as the new school year starts this week.
Simon and Ann (Restricted Access, DPG Day 25)
Pray for the 36 students at the MTC. Pray especially for a couple’s two children who are unwell with high temperatures, and the girl has a burst eardrum. Pray that they will be back to full health soon.
