The Faricys' April Prayer Points
  • Give thanks that we can go the Bush Church Aid Filed Staff Conference in QLD (at time of writing). Please pray that this will be time of encouragement as we meet with the BCA field staff and support workers.
  • As a family, praise God, we are also getting to travel to NSW to visit family in what is looking to be an action packed time (lots of people to see).
  • Pray for the local members of church who will be leading services and preaching while we’re away. Pray that God would continue to grow our church to maturity in Christ.
  • Give thanks for the visitors God bought along to church this Easter. Pray that at St. James we’d be able to follow them up and continue to share God’s good news of Jesus with them.
