Allan spends time in Bangkok this month. 17-20 May: coordinating the Asian Forum for Christian Educators – a biennial regional networking opportunity, with participants from ten countries and serving in eleven mainly-Asian countries. It promises rich interaction. 20-22 May: the AGST Alliance annual doctoral colloquium, where our PhD and EdD candidates meet with faculty to present their research progress and receive encouragement. Pray that each of the numerous contacts Allan makes and sessions he conducts will be mutually enriching and edifying.
Praise for sorted travel plans and progress with tasks begun. Pray for visas for India, for John's language course (13-24 May) and for Wendy: safe travel, continued good health and good working relationships as she goes to another city for the next six weeks.
Please pray that unity between all the Christians and denominations will come out of the Thanksgiving Rally held in Yirrkala last week. Pray that a visiting speaker this week (who used to live in Arnhem Land and is well respected) will have a huge impact and cement relationships. Please also pray for Michelle's mum who is having surgery today to remove a lump, and they are unsure if it is benign or not. Please pray for peace and comfort for Michelle being so far away at this time.
Short Term Mission Papua New Guinea
Are you a teacher with a heart for Mission? If so, there is a wonderful opportunity to be part of a team of teachers going to Anguganak for approx 10 days in September this year.
We will be working with PNG teachers, both primary and secondary, at a Christian Teachers Fellowship Conference. Many of these teachers work with little or no professional development and often very few resources. Many teachers from remote schools have had very little teacher training and they need help with ideas and resources.
We are looking for English, Maths and Science teachers at both primary and secondary levels.
We are also looking for a carpenter to work with teachers from the Vocational College.
As this trip is self-funded we need to make airline booking fairly soon to get the best possible price.
