Lord willing, we leave this Sunday, August 14, for Dar Es Salaam, Tanzania, for ABWE's East Africa Regional Conference. I (Bruce) will be speaking 6 times to our missionaries, and Bev will have the joy speaking once to the ladies. We'll also be available for encouragement and counseling during the conference. This will be our new East Africa's Regional Director's first Regional Conference, and the first for our East Africa missionaries. These dear servants serve Christ in a challenging part of the world, and we are blessed and honored to be there with them.
We seriously covet your prayers, knowing apart from God's grace and your prayers, our efforts would be in vain.
1. Prayer for safe travels and health for the journey. Our 5 combined flights of 26 hours and 5 airports. Pray that we'll be able to sleep some, and that Bev and I will not have problems with blood clots on such long flights (because of past knee replacements). Pray for connecting flights and luggage traveling with us.
2. Prayer for freshness and anointing for Bev and Bruce. That Christ will receive glory, and hearts and bodies will be encouraged and helped.
3. Prayer for safety while in Dar Es Salaam and Zanzibar.
4. Prayer for Kyle and Heather Farran (Regional Director), that they will be encouraged, and pray for those who will lead worship and work with the youth.
5. Above all, pray for God's will to be done, more than numbers 1 & 2
Bruce & Bev McDonald
