Prayer points before our visit…

Hello everyone!

We are off to Santa Cruz in Bolivia on Wednesday (28th October) for two weeks. We are going to stay with the leaders of Fuente De Vida- the Church we are praying about joining. If you want to know how we got to this point, look at the ‘Our story so far’ page. While away we’ll go to the church, spend time seeing what the city is like, Ben will spend a day at the school he could possibly work for and we’ll both be praying and trying to hear God’s voice!

While we’re away we’ll try to post some more on this blog so you can keep up to date with what we’re doing. We’d really appreciate your prayers.

Please could you pray for us and our visit-

  • That we hear God’s voice guiding us- that He gives us a heart for Santa Cruz and the Church if we are to move there.
  • For faith and courage- part of us doesn’t want to leave Frontiers at all or move away from our family and friends. We are also tempted to be quite fearful of all the changes and things to be done.
  • For finances- we don’t know how much it will cost to visit or move if we do and we don’t know how much Ben is earning from Supply teaching yet. We do know God provides as He already has with gifts from people that have been so encouraging.
  • For Ben to be offered a job, and pray for his interview and lesson that he will teach.
  • For our role in the Church as a family- Ben, Roz and Chloe. We believe Chloe is key in being called to Bolivia.
