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)
REV & MRS PATTERSON - AUGUST 2018
PRAY FOR OUTREACH AT CLEVE FIELD DAYS
Thank you all for your continued prayers for us here in the Eyre Peninsula as we labour in Port Lincoln and Lock. We would ask you to particularly seek the Lord for our outreach efforts in the coming week.

From Tuesday 14th to Thursday 16th the bi-annual Cleve field days are being held. This is a reasonably large agricultural show which serves as something of a social highlight in the area attracting many people from across the whole Eyre Peninsula and further afield.

As we did two years ago, our Lock congregation is manning a stall over the three days as a means of distributing gospel literature. Over 1000 showbags have been prepared containing gospel material and we hope that most, if not all of these will be distributed over the course of the show.

Please pray for us, that the Lord would multiply our labours, prosper His Word, and that it might please the Lord to grant a time of spiritual reaping for us as well as a time of sowing.

PRAY FOR WORK TEAM IN KENYA
Please pray for the team of nine, led by Rev Kenny, who travel out to Kenya on 31st July for two weeks. The main purpose of the trip is to assist with the repainting of the Christian Academy at Lityei, and they will have an opportunity to visit the BCFC churches in the area and fellowship with Miss Russell and our friends in the BCFC.

Please pray for the trip, for journeying mercies and that everyone would be encouraged at this time.
