Operation Mobilisation prayer request
The visit of the ship Logos Hope run by Operation Mobilisation to the UK (including Birkenhead) has had to be delayed by 3 months because of visa problems. The UK immigration and visa office will not say who will be allowed visas only a list of countries that are excluded with no guarantees that a person from a country not on the exclusion list will be granted a visa. As the ship will be in the UK for about 3 months it is not practical for staff to remain on board throughout the visit. If this cannot be resolved along with outstanding issues at each port, including health and safety for queueing and adequate parking etc etc then the visit may have to be abandoned. Please pray that solutions are found soon. Thank you, Geff Meyer.
Suffering Christians of Nigeria
Thirteen Christian boys and girls were killed and many injured when a car deliberately mowed them down as they marched in a parade celebrating their Saviour’s Resurrection. Earlier a Christian village in Northern Nigeria was ambushed at night by hundreds of Fulani herdsmen who maimed and murdered anyone they could find, killing livestock and burning homes and crops. Please help Barnabas Fund as they provide trauma-healing programmes for survivors and support for orphans. Details are here and on the Mission Board. Thank you, Jenny Summersby
