PRAYER REQUESTS FROM ROBERT
Please pray for...
1) The recommencement of many of our children's meetings which are now into their third week without any incidents.

2) Our next round of deputation meetings. It is so good to get the opportunity to bring the very latest reports to the congregations again.

3) A favourable response from the state school sector as we roll out an online "in the classroom assembly" playlist offer, to many hundreds of primary schools across the whole Province.

So far the feedback has been very favourable... so much so that we have been encouraged to go even further and offer these videos to some schools on the UK mainland through the efforts of many of our ministers there, who have linked up with us in this online ministry to the boys and girls.

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
