Partnering through Faculty Development: Lael from Sri Lanka

Prayer Points (con’t)

Latin America: You will see that Dionisio is now the ‘interim’ Director. This is because Igor and Charo Améstegui are on sabbatical. This was first talked about more than five years ago, but the pandemic obstructed our plans—as well as taking Charo (and the family) through ‘the valley of the shadow of death’ as she suffered with COVID-19. Please rejoice with them that this opportunity for refreshment and rest has finally arrived—and give thanks to Dionisio and the team for carrying extra responsibility during this time.

Myanmar: (a) Running right through this week is a Level Two seminar in Yangon, with 25 participants expected from nearby churches—and with Sein Kyi, Slai Yaw Han and Run Nuam Thang as the facilitators. And then (b) from Friday until Tuesday the focus shifts to Keng Tung, in East Shan state. Once again it is a Level Two seminar; once again the facilitators will be Sein Kyi, Slai Yaw Han and Run Nuam Thang; and once again 25 participants are expected! Sein Kyi asks us to pray that being in the middle of the rainy season won’t impact the seminar and that all participants will remain healthy.

Zimbabwe: The final seminar for this round of training takes place on Saturday in Harare. Praise God that over four (monthly) Saturdays, all three Levels have been covered and that participants have been faithful in their attendance. As Gary Cross writes, ‘It is our prayer that God’s Word will be taught and preached more faithfully, clearly and relevantly, by men and women who are confident in conviction and Christ-like in character as a result of our seminars this year.’

Thank you for your faithfulness in this ministry of prayer.
