Praise & Prayer October 2011
Praise the Lord with us for:
- A great start to the semester, once again we are filling our all our allotted bead space here at the accommodation we rent, all our problems are the good kind the one that come with growth. The Lord has yet again shown Himself to be very faithful in deed.
- A great student body, there is real sense of desire for the Lord and His things.
- A blessed time in Sydney as Pastor Scott from CC Rotorua and I shared at the Spirit filled life conference last month. The Lord answered so many of our prayers.
- The Lords faithfulness in so many ways, the provision of a vehicle for CCBI, Pastor Franz Bischof and his family joining us as a CCBI registrar.
- For the successful completion of Jordans dental surgery.
- A blessed an insightful time at the CC Asian Missions conference in Hong Kong. It was precious time in which many were encouraged in the calling to bring the gospel to Asia. I was personally encouraged and challenged by some many faithful servants of God who serve the Lord in such difficult arenas of service.
- Jordan as he reached his 18th Birthday and all of Gods faithfulness to him.
Pay with us for:

- The anointed teaching of the scriptures under the influence of the Spirit of God. That there would be hunger in this region for the word of God.
- The weekly outreach as we share the gospel on the streets for Rotorua, for salvation to visit many homes. For wisdom, courage, protection and glory to the Lord.
- I will be teaching a mens retreat for 5 Calvary Chapels on the east coast of the Usa in October, please pray for anointing and that the Lord would seek powerfully though His Word.
- Wisdom for CCBI, the next step for us as we grow and really need to make some decisions for the regarding the ministry, In essence we need to find amore permanent home that will allow us to expand and grow.
- That the Lord would raise up labourers to plant churches across the South Pacific Rim.
- The upcoming church plant in Tauranga, New Zealand with Pastor Dave Heitman. (Feb 2012)
- The CC Wellington retreat in November 2011. As CCBI will be serving in the retreat providing Childcare, Gwyn and I will be speaking during the weekend,. Please pray for a blessed and encouraging time for Pastor Dave Pham and the fellowship there in Wellington.
- The Lord provision for the ministry and for us as a family. We all know things are tight world wide with the recession; this has also impacted us as family and as ministry. Practically, I will be looking for work to help provide for the family, as you can imagine this will be difficult in the context of the ministry here at CCBI, so my intention is to try and find work during the semester gap. Pleas pray that the Lord would provide the right opportunities and the wisdom how to move forward in this area.
Thank you for co labouring with us in this ministry through the privilege of prayer.
