...striving together for the faith of the gospel

NEW OPPORTUNITIES
Philip Gardiner is currently conducting a weekly Bible Study with a group of men in a South Asian Islamic Country. Thus far Philip has been speaking to them concerning the authority of scripture, and the awfulness of sin. Please pray that the messages will be translated accurately, and souls will be saved and equipped through the Word.

PRAY FOR WORK IN IRELAND
Thank you for your ongoing prayerful support at this time. Due to the lockdown and restrictions, I was not able to continue my normal work between April and the end of June this year, however I took the opportunity to prepare two evangelistic CD's with short (12-15 minute) gospel messages for distribution. July saw a return to outdoor evangelistic work again at Knock RC Shrine and street preaching in Dublin city centre. We pray that Covid will soon pass into history, meanwhile I am both comforted and challenged by the Saviour's words concerning the woman who anointed His head with ointment: "Leave her alone...she hath done what she could." Thank you for your continued support.

PRAY FOR FPC KIDS HOLIDAY BIBLE CLUB
A virtual Holiday Bible Club organised by FPC Kids runs this week on Facebook and YouTube. The videos will go out every morning at 10am until Friday 24th July. Please join us in prayer for all the children who join the Bible Club, that they will enjoy all the singing, crafts, memory verses, quizzes and stories; but most of all that many will hear and understand the gospel, and put their trust in Jesus Christ.

MISSION PRAYER REQUEST - JULY 2020
KENYA PRAYER REQUESTS
We had commenced our deputation meetings around our church congregations in Northern Ireland at the beginning of January but were not able to continue after 17th March because of the situation with the Covid 19 pandemic. We had planned to return to Kenya around the 20th May but all our plans were changed with the developing Covid 19 situation.

Please remember in prayer the plight of the Kenyan brethren and sisters at this time that the Lord will keep them safe and meet their basic needs. Our Mission Board have been able to provide some needy families in the congregations with a quantity of maize which has been much appreciated.

We thank the Lord for modern technology that enables online meeting to take place; pray for the blessing of the Lord upon every effort in the Gospel at this time.

Pray that God’s people will be faithful, maintain a good testimony and that the church will grow stronger in these days

Pray for the salvation of many as the radio broadcasts continue and as people do access the gospel on social media.

On the home front, we continue to appreciate prayer for our two sons and daughter-in-law as they are all involved in the National Health Service. Also remember our elderly parents, Malcolm's mum is in a Care Facility with no visits allowed at this time. His dad is at home being cared for by Malcolm's brother and Alison's mum who was staying with us but now has returned to her own home.

I will say of the LORD, He is my refuge and my fortress: my God; in him will I trust.” Psalm 91:2

PRAY FOR ANDREW & HANNAH
We appreciate your prayer support as we continue to work here at the Church and School compound in Uganda. We would leave the following requests before you at this time :-

1. For Hannah, as many of you will now have heard is pregnant. I would appreciate prayer for her - that we can get any medical help that we need at this time, that we can get home on furlough as planned to have the baby at home where medical help is significantly better and that Hannah and the baby stay healthy given a limited diet etc.

2. For the work, I have been busy as usual in many ways practically, but it would be our prayer and desire to see the children and staff back at school and the greater community to have the opportunity to attend church services. We very much miss the interaction with people and have a deep burden that we can’t reach them with the gospel at this time when our opportunities to preach, teach or speak to them are severely limited.

3. For our leaders – that the Lord will give wisdom to all who are making difficult yet important decisions at this time during the pandemic. We are hopeful, that some children in the exam classes may be able to return to school in the next two weeks and that some of the other measures in place for the lockdown will also start to ease from the 2nd of June.
