For your PRAYERS
The Persecuted Church: Christians in CHINA. Surveillance is amongst the most oppressive and sophisticated in the world. Church attendance is rigorously monitored, and many churches have been closed down; it is illegal for under-18s to attend church. Yet, the number of Christians continues to grow in China.
Those in particular need of our prayers: Miriam BOOBIER (the family have asked for no phone calls or emails please), Elizabeth CARDEN & Peter BAKER.
The Bereaved: Those known to us.
