The Christchurch mission team is in it’s final stages of preparing.
The last of the assignments that were due prior to leaving are done and team members are getting packed and ready to head over and partner with the saints at St Saviours Sydnenham and Beckenham.
There are plenty of great opportunities that we will have to share the gospel with people over the course of the week from Church meetings to kid’s clubs and door knocking and even at a Sushi Masterclass.
The Christchurch team are looking forward to letting you know what we are up to over the week.
We would love you to be praying for us in the following ways:
– That God would keep us safe while we travel to and around New Zealand.
– That God would be merciful on those who do not yet follow Jesus and bring them to himself.
– Pray that the mission team would be living out their faith in Jesus as they seek to serve the members of St Saviours.
– Pray that as the team partners with St Saviours we would be willing to learn from a different culture as well as sensitive to differences that may exist.
– Give thanks for the many opportunities to preach God’s word during the week and pray that the team members who are speaking would clearly preach the gospel.
– Pray that our visit would be a refreshment and encouragement to the church and that as we stay with church members we wouldn’t burden them seek to love and serve them throughout the week.
