BMS World Mission Day of Prayer

BMS World Mission is setting aside Monday, 28 February as a Day of Prayer. If you want to be involved, the BMS site has loads of great resources. We want to be involved too, so we asked our church in Cusco if they had any prayer requests. Here is what they said:
• For the health of Sylvia, Carlota and Manuel
• Stefan Illary and Jordan have had problems with their throat and health concerns for some time.
• For God to provide job opportunities for the church family.
• Some church members are not currently attending; please pray that they return.
• For Scott, Anjanette, Jessica and Samuel as they return to Cusco following their home assignment.
• For Yhome, the 15-year-old daughter of a church member who is having a time of rebellion.
• Yaneli is a young girl who attends the church and her 3-month-old baby sister died a month ago of pneumonia. Please pray for the whole family.
• That more people in the community will come to faith through the witness of the church.
• That the current church members will grow in their understanding and knowledge of God.
• That God will give the church wisdom in the development of the youth and children’s work.

It would be great if you could join us in prayer for as much of the day as you can; it is a great opportunity for us all to be joined together across the continents.

  1. Hi N, M, D & S
    We hope you are all well.
    We want you to know that we are praying for you during our sunday services tomorrow (27th February) as part of our involvement in the BMS Day of Prayer.
    We read your blog with interest and it's whetting our appetite for Peru once again! On top of that, BMS have recently distributed their latest DVD called Amazonia with includes some great stuff about the work going on in Iquitos (a long way from where you are!), a place we've been to several times before. In fact, it was a bit weird seeing it on DVD.
    Anyway, blessings to you all.
    And if you get bored at anytime and you want a quick glance at some of the things happening at Mount Pleasant (Blackwood) take a glance at our website:
    We've even got a link to you on it!
    God bless,
    Mark & Anne Thomas
