Mission of the Month – Crosslinks

We pray for Nick and Harriet Algeo as they prepare for their move to the Servants of the Word College in The Gambia in June.  We give thanks for the response they have received from churches and individuals who have pledged financial and prayer support for their mission. 

We pray that all their practical needs would be met in the next few months, and especially for the health and safety of their young children Phoebe and Arthur in a new country. 

See the board at the back of church for more information!
