News from Tory & Jo Cayzer (Walgett-Collarenebri)
In the April school holidays they ran a Kid’s Club in Collarenebri with help from North Epping Church. They say the outreach events went really well and think it was the best one ever. Relationships grow every year. The highlight was an outside service on Friday night. Keep praying for ways to grow the kingdom through the rest of the year.
Tory’s father’s heart surgery went well and they thank people for praying for him. Keep praying for strength for his parents.
In May our family and three ladies from Walgett went to an Indigenous Ministry Training Weekend at Copeton Dam which was an encouraging weekend. Keep praying for their perseverance in indigenous outreach.
Please also pray for Jacob and Annika to keep motivated at school where educational levels are low. Both of their teachers are taking maternity leave.
Pray for Tory who will be attending the Global Anglican Futures Conference in Jerusalem 15-25 June. Pray that this might lead to a new partnership for Armidale Diocese with a diocese in the South Pacific.
News from Bruce & Jodi Chapman (Northern Territory)
Bruce and Jodi are thankful for time in Adelaide meeting with and speaking to various groups. Bruce took seven youth to Katoomba where they had a great time at the KYCK youth convention. They are thankful for the Katherine Christian Convention 5-6 May, especially the youth section with teaching on God’s faithfulness from the story of Joseph. Bruce asks for prayer for preaching on Deuteronomy throughout Term 2; and for the Pearson family, supported by CMS, who are moving to Gunbalanya this month. Pray that they can all work well together.
Bruce will be with us 25 June – 1 July.

Prayer for Asylum Seekers
Lord, No one is a stranger to you and no one is ever far from your loving care. In your kindness watch over refugees and asylum seekers, those separated from their loved ones, those who are lost, and those who have been exiled from their homes. Bring them safely to the place where they long to be, and help us always to show your kindness to strangers and those in need. Guide the nations of the world towards that day
when all will rejoice in your Kingdom of justice and of peace. Amen.
Prayer for those in need: Ask God to comfort, strengthen and deepen the trust of those who are sick, grieving, or in special need at this time especially Betty, Koula, Des and Chris.
