Prayer Requests for September and October 2016
The International Council of OSWW meets 26 September – 1 October in South Africa. Pray for safe travel for the members . Pray that we will hear God’s voice as we make important decisions about the future direction of OSWW.
Pray also for the Southern Africa board which meets on Saturday 17th. Pray that they will also be guided by the Holy Spirit as they plan and make recommendations to the International Council.
Over the last few months a small team in Cape Town has been working on a youth curriculum to accompany our life skills board game (Route 86:11). The initial testing of this material will take place during a church mission trip to Lesotho. Pray that we will learn from the experience, improve the curriculum and that young people will be challenged and their lives changed as they take part in the programme.
Give thanks that we have received donations that will enable us to purchase an off-road trailer tent to provide accommodation for Mitch and Carol when they travel into remote areas of Zimbabwe.
Pray for Dorian as he travels to Bella Bella 15-16 September to train volunteers in a forgotten village outside the town.
Pray for wisdom for the volunteers in Mooiplaas as they consider how best to continue their ministry to children from the dump.
We give thanks for the partnerships with other organisations that enable us to work in Zimbabwe, Kenya and Zambia. In South Africa we have a number of unfunded small projects that have been serving children for many years. Student workbooks have to be replaced every year, other materials wear out. The volunteers get tired. Please pray that the people, resources and funding may be found to sustain the ministry to marginalised children in these very needy places.
