Last year we raised over £1200 for toilet twinning. This year we turn to a very different but equally urgent need of the Anglican Church of Pakistan and the Diocese of Raiwind. They desperately need leadership training. Imagine if we did not have trained and resourced leaders, we would be a flock without a shepherd. Bishop Azad Marshall writes:
“We want to provide on-the-job training for Laity and Clergy by offering short-term courses as well as help to meet their ministry needs. We would appreciate your prayers and financial support. ”Please give generously to support the church often oppressed and persecuted. Special envelopes will be provided to be returned by Easter Sunday.
Please remember in your prayers
Please pray for Karen Harcombe and Helen Coomber as they step out in faith to visit the Church of Kenya in March. And also pray for Bishop Azad Marshall and the leadership training so desperately needed in the Diocese of Raiwind.
