Focus for the coming months – More of you God. “We have witnessed your powerful work amongst us, laying foundations, preparing the ground and establishing your righteousness amongst the people. Over the past eight years we have been truley amazed ! This year we know you have so much for us and we know that as we sit with you and listen to your heart it will cause us to speak these things out. We then want to do what we see the Father is doing -in everything we do – from fundraising to action on the ground.

Give us your heart we pray, keep us humble and willing to do what is needed to the glory of your name, Amen.”

Psalm 24 A psalm of David.

The earth is the LORD’s, and everything in it.

The world and all its people belong to him.

For he laid the earth’s foundation on the seas and built it on the ocean depths.

Who may climb the mountain of the LORD?

Who may stand in his holy place?

Only those whose hands and hearts are pure, who do not worship idols and never tell lies.

They will receive the LORD’s blessing and have a right relationship with God their savior.

Such people may seek you and worship in your presence, O God of Jacob.


Open up, ancient gates! Open up, ancient doors, and let the King of glory enter.

Who is the King of glory? The LORD, strong and mighty; the LORD, invincible in battle.

Open up, ancient gates! Open up, ancient doors, and let the King of glory enter.

Who is the King of glory? The LORD of Heaven’s Armies— he is the King of glory.

Children’s Home and church at Shine Village.

Pray for the renovations now taking place at the Children’s home at Shine Village and also a properties belonging to children from our project. We pray for Pastor Lino and his wife who lead the church at Shine Village, “Shine Assembly” which has been growing since October 2016. Today they have over 50 members. Please pray for the children as they meet together.

Discipleship. We want to see all those who wish to follow Christ receive the support they need to grow in their faith and realise their God-given potential. Shine Village is an oasis of support and with individuals of all ages finding faith, comfort, support and love from Jesus we need to take seriously the followup through regular activities. Many children live too far to attend church. Special sessions running at Shine Village on a Saturday will include transporting children from the villages on the outskirts of our project area.
