PRAYER REQUESTS AND WORK UPDATES: SPRING 2018
1. I am delighted to report that although we are starting the final term of another school year, due to the willingness of a newly appointed head teacher, I have been able to get my first assembly booking in a large primary school that crosses over into West Belfast. Do please pray for this endeavour as we seek to bring the Gospel into this part of the city.

2. At this time of the year we are in the midst of many prize giving and parent’s night meetings. It was very good to see so many visitors and family members along recently at such meetings in Mullaglass, Comber, Rasharkin and Limavady. Do please pray for the last of these services coming up at the end of April in our Banbridge church.

3. I know it still seems a long way off, but I would ask for prayer as we begin now to prepare messages, power point presentations and various work books for all of the Holiday Bible Clubs and children’s missions to be held throughout the summer months. The meetings this year will be held (DV) in Garvagh, Ballymena, Ballygowan, UCC Larne, Aghalee, John Knox (Belfast), Larne, Randalstown and Comber, with one or two others still to confirm their bookings.

4. Again, many thanks for all the continued practical and prayerful support.

PRAY FOR JOYCE IN THE SCHOOLS
As l reflect on the work amongst the children it is with a deep sense of gratitude for all that Lord He has enabled me to do. I can say with the Psalmist the Lord hath done great things whereof we are glad,

Since the beginning of January I have conducted Bible Club Meetings in six Primary Schools. In some of the schools l have had the opportunity to speak to the entire school as the meetings were held during the school day others after school. In some schools l would have two meetings in the afternoon P1-3 then P4 -7.

Praise the Lord for the opening into Darley School again this year at the end of January. It has been very encouraging to see the enthusiasm of the children and to see some trust the Lord. The help and support of Principals and teaching staff has been brilliant. I have also had the opportunity to speak at school assemblies and weekly children’s meetings.

PRAY FOR THE WORK TEAM IN SPAIN
Could you please remember in prayer a visit of a group of nine young people, headed by Rev. Andrew Patterson from Mourne F.P.C. who are on a Mission visit to our work in Spain. They arrived on the 29th March and will stay in our home until the 5th April. Pray for them as they will have the opportunity to see the false religion, particularly in this part of Spain, which has been practiced for so many centuries. Pray that God would burden these young people´s hearts for this part of His vineyard. We will be covering various villages with gospel tracts, so pray that this literature would be well received and be the means of leading many to the knowledge of the truth in Christ Jesus.

PRAY FOR THE BOYS AND GIRLS
Please continue to pray for the work among the boys and girls. A bit of sickness followed then by several days of snow meant that some of our assemblies and children’s meetings had to be cancelled.

We are now looking forward to the clock changing back, Easter and the brighter nights. With most of our children’s meetings now nearing to a close, please pray for several special parent’s night and prize giving meetings planned for end of March. Such meeting are always a great opportunity of getting parents and other family members in under the sound of the Gospel.

Many of the Scripture Union classes in the schools are now drawing to a close for another season as well. Looking back, the Lord has been gracious, with good numbers in attendance and precious souls being saved. To that end we say with the Psalmist, “… my glory may sing praise to thee, and not be silent.”

PRAY FOR THE WORK IN NEPAL
I do thank God for a blessed time in Ulster over Christmas. It was blessed because God was with me in a special way. It was sad because a beloved uncle died but I was so thankful that God give me the opportunity to be with him in his final weeks and especially his final hours. Do pray for my dad as he adjusts to life without his older brother, he would have visited with him two or three days each week. Pray that God will be with my dad and all the family circle at this time.

Please continue to pray for the work visa as the application has now been submitted. It will have to go through many different departments of government before being accepted, DV. Pray that the connected work project, of starting a new English academy, will be seen as viable and needful in this area. Pray that as it passes from department to department that God will go before, preparing the way and that the visa will be granted. It will take a month or so before I will know the final decision. 

Since returning from the Christmas break I have commenced teaching English to the bible students three days a week. This has allowed me to get to know the students a bit better and they are truly a lovey group of Christians. Pray for each student, that God will open the door of further service for them in the Nepalese church. Pray for their families, that they will be a source of encouragement to them in their labours.

Whilst at home I was given a gift of some wool hats for the children in the children's home. I do want to thank those involved most sincerely. It is the winter season here in Nepal and the mornings are very cold, so the hats have been greatly received by the boys and girls. They love wearing them to church and to school alike.

Please continue to pray for the language learning, I am improving but it is slow. Pray that God will help my mind to quickly understand and recognise this new language.

Thank you for your prayers and interest in the work of Nepal and pray that God will continue to move in a wonderful way, saving souls for eternity here in Nepal.
