In regards to

decision is
still with the
SA government cabinet...
SMG are contacting churches (and
chaplains) and asking people to help
‘fund the gap’. That is – contribute
money to chaplaincy so that chaplains
will have full funding in term 1 while
the State Government makes its
decision on funding.

PRAYER POINTS
LOCALLY
(1) Please pray for a
blessing upon all Christian satellite TV
programs & radio broadcasts in
December. Many non- believers are
reached in this way.
Please continue to pray for (and
connect with) members of our
congregation and community who are
unwell and in hospital : Heather, Rex,
Delphine, Lindsay.
(2) Pray for God`s peace in Jolo,

that are being committed in this area
are very extreme. Pray that the
authorities will act with integrity to stop
the violence.
Matt, Lisa and Isla Lucas would like to
sincerely thank their church family for
the overwhelming well wishes, prayer
support and cards. A special thanks
also to those who prepared delicious
meals for us. We look forward to
introducing Isla to you soon!

following bombings by Somali militants
in northeast Kenya, & threats by alShabab to attack Kenyan cities. Please
