FRANCE

Mike and Alison Packer - Pray for Mike as he visits the prison in his role as chaplain. He is able to speak to the men in their cells and share God's Word with them when he can. He holds a monthly service and, although attendances are small, those who come ask questions and have an opportunity to pray with Mike.

 

Colin and Maureen Crow - Pray for Colin and Maureen, as they are involved in organising two festive meals for the needy in Montpellier on 16 December. About 300 people are expected for lunch and again in the evening. It is an inter-church effort in collaboration with social services and the mayor's office. Pray for a good number of volunteers to serve and also to speak to the guests, and that their hearts may be touched by God's love manifested in the Lord Jesus.

Patrizio and Jennifer Zucchetto - Pray for a project that Patrizio and Jennifer are involved in, "A John's Gospel for every home in every village with no evangelical church".

Pray for contacts after a large distribution of Gospels and tracts.

 

Geoff and Janet Ruston - Geoff is making good progress following his recent heart surgery. Pray that this would continue and for Janet as she supports him.
