The Fergusons' July Prayer Points
The Walgett ladies have planned to hold their annual Christmas in July. This normally attracts up to 20 ladies who gather to share a Christmas-style meal and hear the gospel. Pray that if this can still go ahead it will be a successful witness to those that don’t know Jesus yet.
