Prayer & Praise December 2012
Praise the Lord with us for :
- A wonderful semester, we have had a blessed time with small groups of students and seen much growth in heart and understanding.
- The provision of a van for the school, this has made it possible to minister more regularly at the Calvary Chapel in Hamilton , which is about 90 minutes way.
- Great times of outreach on the streets of Hamilton and Rotorua, for those who have been saved on the streets.
- For the outreach trips to Hamilton, the mens conference in New Jersey & Melbourne, Australia, for God’s goodness, protection and the fruit from these times of service.
- Great times of blessings at the envision New Zealand conference and the envision conference in Australia
- God’s faithful provision for us and the staff of CCBI, who all serve as missionaries here in New Zealand, I have personally been so blessed by the team the Lord has brought here to serve with us in this pioneering work, the steps of faith and commitment they have made has been quite humbling.
- Students for the February semester, we are all ready on the verge of turning students away because of a lack of space & additional accommodation. As problems go, a great one to have.
- The Lord’s Grace and the privilege to serve Him
Please stand with us and seek the Lord in prayer over these items:
- Wisdom from the Lord and the provision of His Spirit. Anointing as we prepare to teach the next set of classes in February
- That the Lord would bring those He wishes to study here for the upcoming February semester.
- The provision of additional accommodation as the school grows particularly accommodation for married couples & Staff. Wisdom in relation to decisions about where to host the school as it grows.
- The provision of an additional vehicles, with one of our vehicles written of in an accident last month, fortunately Gwyn and Jordan were not hurt, but it leaves us once again in the position of difficulty in relation to transporting students.
- Rest and refreshment for all especially Mark & Gwyn, after a tiring , blessed but demanding semester.
- The church plant in Tauranga, the planting Byways, a Calvary Chapel affiliate will begin in February 2012. Please pray for wisdom and God provision as we seek to get involved and support Pastor Dave Heitman in this new venture.
- The planned outreach to Calvary Chapel Perth in March 2012. A team from CCBI will be travelling to Western Australia to encourage and serve with Calvary Perth.
- The Ladies Conference with Pam Markey in February/ March 2012. Once again CCBI along with CC Rotorua & CC Hamilton will hosting a national ladies conference for New Zealand.
- Personally for God’s provision for flights as we try and make a trip back to europe during the summer.
- Wisdom over our current living situation and whether we need to move off site to release accommodation for the student body and staff, for God’s provision of a suitable place to live, in suitable location.
We thank you with all our hearts for the love and care that you have shown us as we serve here in the South Pacific Rim.
God Bless this Christmas
