9 T Floods Heavy rain has caused major flooding in the NT communities of Kalkarindji, Daguragu and Pigeon Hole. 700 residents have been evacuated, including our team members Mat and Shannon and their four young children. We give thanks that the family is safe. Pray with us for the hundreds of people who have lost everything. 

10 F Floods One of the local believers shared, “There is a lot of uncertainty around how long we will be dislocated and away from everything we know and love. It has been a long few days and it is not over yet.” Pray that during this challenging time, the local church can shine, sharing God’s love through word and practical action.

11 S Floods Pray for God’s provision as we seek funds to support the long-term community recovery effort.

12 S South East Asia Members of our South East Asia team are currently attending a training course for culture and language facilitators, as they teach English at the Education Foundation. Pray for this to be a fruitful time that will help them engage meaningfully with their local friends.

14 T South East Asia Mike writes, “Please lift up the local people. Pray for God to be at work in their hearts. Pray that they would be open and attentive to the Father’s voice. And ask that we, the team, would be ready to participate in God’s work as He leads us.”

17 F Cambodia The whole community of the house church Luke and Rachel are involved in is being involuntarily relocated.  Pray for God to make a way for this small faith community to continue, despite its fragility.

18 S Cambodia Rachel and Luke’s disability therapy project is almost up and running. Praise God for His provision of a great space to rent and a passionate staff member to join the project team.

19 S Thailand Pray for the leadership training events that are held each month. Pray for the Ethnic Thai leaders to be equipped with the Word of God so they can share it in relevant ways with their communities.
