Prayers for Sierra Leone - October
It's nearly time for the annual shipment to Sierra Leone of shoe bags, school books, equipment for the Health Centre, and a whole host of other items. The container will be delivered to Redcoat at Crawley on Monday 17 October and transported to the docks on Thursday 20 October. Please pray for everything to run smoothly and for financial provision to cover the shipping costs.
Magnus’ prayer requests for October
Please pray for peace in Sierra Leone. Whenever General or National Elections are announced there is a threat to our peace. Pray that politicians will see reason not to 'fan the flames of war' as a way of luring votes. Because of widespread illiteracy, we have a very gullible population. Elections are due June 24, 2023
Pray also for healing for the sick. Gabriel Kamara from St John’s Church in Goderich has been very sick and has now been diagnosed with prostrate cancer. Gabriel has been a very committed youth worker in the church, as well as a lay preacher and choir leader at Goderich. As it stands, he cannot pay the cost charged for his operation (£1300). The Connexion and Goderich Church have sent letters of appeal around the churches in Sierra Leone, and we ask that you please pray for God’s intervention in this matter. Prayer is also required for Jane Bassie from Fabaina Church. Jane has been feeling unwell, but the cause has not yet been diagnosed.
Please continue to pray for us as we are putting together a team for the new Health Centre. We pray that God will provide us with mission-minded people who will work as unto the Lord – Col 3:23.
Please pray also for God’s provision to continue to raise funds to support our schools and churches and enable us to carry out necessary works to make them comfortable and respectable places for education and worship. Current works include: completion of the roof of the school at Kamakontakay; completion of the roof lintels and roof of the school at Fogbo; completion of the church roofs at Mathoir and Songo Loko and the re-roofing of the weak additional classroom block at Mabang, which was destroyed by the August rain storms.
We join in prayer for the economies of the UK, Sierra Leone and many other parts of the world, praying that God will intervene and restore the past glory of peace and economic development.
Finally, we pray for the Conference of the UK Connexion in October. May God’s name be glorified!
