Much love to you all in the dear Lords name.
We often hear people blame (the enemy) the d***l whose name I will not give pen to for tribulation.
When God uses this very instrument to fulfil His will for our lives, God takes us through the fire not to burn us but to purify us,
He takes us through the waters not to drown us but to wash us and when the waters are rough. He’s in the boat with us.
When we understand that the dear Lord chastens those He loves, this enables us to endure trials.
Psalm 119:71 – ‘It is good for me that I have been afflicted that I may learn your statutes.
Loving Father through your gracious Holy Spirit would you please teach us good judgment, wise and right discernment and knowledge for we have believed (trusted, relied on and clung to your word) (commandments)’ – AMP version.

Pray for all of those that visit the bus in the evenings that. Please pray that there would be fruitful conversations that are gospel lead with wisdom and care.
Pray that the dear Lord would graciously open people’s hearts to the message of hope in the gospel and those that do come to the Lord and added to Gods family that they would be protected from the devils schemes, grow in Christ and would be able to continue in Christian fellowship.
Also pray for guidance for the team & trust going forward into the future with this outreach work that we would continue in the will of God for us as long as God desires us to go out.
Pray that the Lord of the harvest would continue to send out labourers into his harvest field and for the reception of God’s Word in the land.

In Genesis 8 verse 22 it says “While the earth remains, seedtime and harvest, cold and heat, summer and winter, and day and night shall not cease”. What a wonderful promise from our Heavenly Father who continues to sustain our planet day by day. It’s on record that we have had an exceptional summer with such a long dry spell. Without rain our crops would wither and die and as we have witnessed we are more prone to wildfires and the destruction they bring. This reminds me that there is truly a famine in the land for the word of God! We have fallen far away spiritually and morally as a Nation from God’s best. There is a spiritual dryness and only our God can bring times of refreshing so there is an urgent need to pray for God’s mercy to be shown rather than His righteous anger. He is a God who will fulfil all His promises because He is just.
Every Blessing, Roy.

“He hath said, I will never leave thee nor forsake thee” Hebrews 8: 5.
Here is a promise that provides a balm to every wound and a quieting for every downcast spirit, as well as for every child of God with whatever situation one is in or whatever circumstance prevails. The promise is sure because ‘He hath said…’ Just as He said ‘Let there be light and there was light.’ God spoke and it came into being, so He has spoken in his communion with His people that He would never leave them. In every changing scene of life the dear Lord will remain true to His loving promises always.
Are you facing adversity or have been facing uncertainty, or find yourself as it were in unchartered territory, alone, bereaved or broken? Then rest your head on his breast this very hour and cast your burdens upon the king of kings.
Are you feeling ineffective, unfruitful, crushed by temptation? Is there any limit to our Heavenly Father to help? Will He pass by those whom His beloved Son has purchased and leave us to ourselves? There may be times that bring what seems a frowning providence but yet still God works out still all things for good for those who love Him , who are called according to His promise (Romans 8: 28). He says,’ I will never leave thee nor forsake thee’!
‘ For which cause we faint not; but though our outward man perish, yet the inward man is renewed day by day. For our light affliction, which is but for a moment, worketh for us a far more exceeding and eternal weight of glory; While we look not at the things which are seen, but at the things which are not seen: for the things which are seen are temporal; but the things which are not seen are eternal’. 2 Corinthians 4: 16-18.
May God Bless you and your loved ones always.
