PRAY FOR JOYCE IN THE SCHOOLS
In September the work in the schools started again with Bible Club meetings and school assemblies. Some of the meetings are held during the school day while others are after school. It has been encouraging to see the enthusiasm of the children who have attended the meetings. I greatly appreciate the help and support of the staff in the schools visited since September.

In November the Lord opened a new opportunity for me. On 19th November l was with the P1 class in Lisnadill PS and then each morning after that I was in a different class from 11.00 to 11.45am.

As well as these meetings l continue to have the opportunity to speak at weekly Children’s Meetings, Deputation meetings and some Ladies meetings.

The following is a list of Schools that I will be holding meetings in over the next few months.

November 19th to 23rd Lisnadill P.S - 11.00 to 11.45 in a different class each day
December 3rd to 7th Lauervale P.S - 9.30 to 10.15 each morning

MISSION IN MANORHAMILTON
The summer work is now finished for another year. I have just concluded five nights of gospel meetings in the local community centre in Manorhamilton, Co. Leitrim.

I preached for three of the nights with the Rev. Larry Power and Rev. Alvin Mullan preaching the others. Many homes were reached with an invite and also a gospel calendar for 2019, during the outreach.

As ever, your prayers and support are both sought and appreciated.

PRAY FOR EXAMS IN KENYA
By God’s grace and provision we have been enabled to reach the end of another school year in the Academy in Kapenguria. I sincerely thank everyone for your prayers and support for the school. But as we close on the 26th October, National Examination are set for primary 29th October to 1st November and Secondary from 5th -30th November. Throughout the country 1.7 million students will sit for these examinations. It is a time when we need much prayer. Please pray for the following:

- Good health and safety of candidates and their families. In one week in the academy a teacher lost his mother, a student lost her father in a road accident and a teacher responsible for an exam class was admitted to hospital: we need prayer.

- The Kenya National Examination Council ( KNEC) for the administration and security of exams. They are seeking to administer examinations efficiently and free from cheating! It is a huge administrative and security exercise. Pray for them.

- For the success for our BCFC candidates which will not only benefit them, but is vital for an improved enrolment in the academy in 2019. Much work and expense has gone into the preparation of candidates and much prayer is being offered. Some of the primary students meet together themselves, to fast and pray over their lunch break. Please join them and ask God to hear their cries!

- Pray for the candidates, as they leave us, that God will go with them and the Word that they have been taught will never leave them!

- Personally, do pray for my final weeks in the Academy. It is not an easy time! Pray for those who will take over my responsibilities. Pray that God will prosper, bless and provide for the Academy in 2019

The effectual fervent prayer of a righteous man availeth much

PRAY FOR THE PATTERSONS - BACK IN KENYA
We arrived back in Kitale on Monday 6th August to recommence our work in this part of the Lord’s vineyard. Thank you for continuing to pray for us, especially over the past 2 ½ years since Alison was diagnosed with colon cancer.

We would be greatly encouraged and helped if you are able to pray with us and for us; we cannot do God’s work to God’s glory without the continual prayerful support of God’s people

The following are some points for Prayer:

• For our families especially Alison’s Mum, Malcolm’s Mum & Dad, Philip, Timothy & Sarah.
• That our work/entry permit which has been applied for may come though quickly so that we can engage in public ministry.
• For the Radio Programmes which we have done which were produced when we were in Northern Ireland and go out on Imani Radio & MMUST FM each week.
• For settling back to life in Kenya, good health, for general safety and especially as we travel on the roads.

There are those things we are not to covet but we do covet the prayers of God’s people for the Lord’s work in Kenya and all our missionaries. (1 Thess. 5:17)
