PRAYER REQUESTS FROM PATTERSONS
On 7th July we commenced a new 15-minute LTBS broadcast, on a third radio station, Labao FM which means that we now have radio coverage from West Pokot to the north of Kitale right down to over 30 kms beyond Kakamega. Our team of broadcasters is also increasing, with Evangelist Patrice and Pastor Andrew preaching alongside me, and then Margaret and Alison who are recording addresses for children. We have also invited those visiting us from home to record their testimonies which we have also broadcast.

We travelled to Northern Ireland for Alison's third annual scan which is all clear. Over the next two years she will be supervised by nurses and then see the Surgeon at the end of the five-year supervision period. We are thankful to God for His mercies and to the people of God for their prayers.

We returned to Kenya on 12th August and have conducted some important meetings in connection with obtaining a church registration under the Societies Act of Kenya.

During the week commencing 19th August the Nyaporo and Bikeke Fellowships held their Vacation Bible Schools. Pray for the teams of Kenyans, led by Mercy and Benson, who are labouring with the boys and girls.

Continue to pray for the book table ministries in Kitale and Shianda and for the young people manning the stalls fulltime, Godwill, Praxeides and Josephine.

Remember also Josephine Kisea who manages the bookshop in Kakamega.

We attended the Kitale Agricultural Show from Wednesday 18th – Saturday 21st September; this is the main agricultural show in north western Kenya. Please pray that the Lord will speak to those who visited our stand or received some of the tracts during their visit.

Pray for the young pastors: Pastor Andrew as he ministers mainly in Bikeke, does evangelism, has book tables in Bikeke and Sibanga and ministers in a local School on Fridays and Lord’s Day morning during term time. Patrice as he ministers mainly in the new Fellowship in Kakamega, conducts the Bible Study in the bookshop and book table in the town centre and recently has been able to gain access to an Open Prison outside Kakamega.

Remember in prayer the men who are potentially leaders in the various congregations and our families back in Northern Ireland. Thank you.
