EBA ask us to pray for Ormesby Light of
Light of Life continues it's journey seeking God's
direction as we seek to relevantly share his love,
concern and interest for the entire community. In
many ways we have had a challenging time recently
but see God's generous provision and care towards us.
Please pray for us as we journey for a while with Tear
Fund as they help us to truly understand the needs of
our community and build a project that is sustainable
and fruitful as we aim to really "scratch where it is
itching". Pray that both as church made up of
individuals with individual calls on our lives that we
impact those around us with the unrelenting
acceptance of God the Father.
Please also pray for wisdom as we seek to both grow
our work with children and teenagers and older
people, as with all projects and churches we need
God's practical provision and direction.
BMS ask us to pray for Italy
Immigration came later to Italy than to other western
European countries, but the Baptist Union there is
