Tearfund: Eastern Uganda
In February, Mark Powley went to Eastern Uganda with a small Tearfund media crew. Praise God that through Tearfund’s promotional work based on the trip already over 100 people have begun giving regularly to support development work in Uganda.
Tearfund work with local churches to find out what the needs of the local community are. Then the local church set about meeting those needs with the resources God gives. Praise God for this empowering work, and pray for wisdom in how St George’s can partner with it.
The churches of Assuret and Baropoc sent their greetings to us. Please pray for God to help them meet the local needs for sanitation, schooling and good governance. Praise God that he has given us resources that can make a global difference.
URGENT PRAYER REQUEST Andy and Uta Buckler: France
Andy's job is extremely demanding and he has to be away from home a lot. Uta is having to deal with their five kids on her own, and they are not settling well into living in Paris and coping with their new schools. They have decided that one of the boys would be better off with grand parents in England, which is itself upsetting for the family.
Uta asks us to pray that this lad will benefit from being in UK. She asks for a calmer home life, energy to cope, love and wisdom. The church they attend is dry and does not cater for the needs of young people. To add to their difficulties they have recently been robbed at home, their bicycles being stolen, leaving them feeling vulnerable.
"Lord, hear our prayers and let this cry come to Thee."
Please pray for them.
