Prayer Points for May

Hello to all of our supporters,

I will be sending along an update about all of the activities from April and May soon. Here are a few prayer points for things for the immediate future:

1. Winning the City Dinner – Vision setting & Fundraising for city ministries
2. Youth Leader – We need a youth leader for our youth group at Glorious Hope Baptist. (Praise: The Youth had a great time at a recent event in the Blue Mountains, KYCK)
3. Preaching opportunities: Inner West Baptist, Youth group in Bankstown and a young adults retreat on the 15 May
4. City Bible Forum Weekend Away: An evangelistic weekend away in the Southern Highlands. We are praying for 50 people to come away on the weekend.
5. Pamper Day: An evangelistic event for the women of o the community around Glorious Hope Baptist
6. Continued growth and salvations at City Bible Forum, Sydney. Al Stewart’s series in Ecclesiastes and Ian Powell’s continuing series in John.
7. Planning and financial preparations for US ministry trip: we need a van during our time in Iowa, a house-sitter for our Australian home and the necessary finances for the travel in the US.

Thanks for all of your faithful support and prayers. We look forward to seeing you soon.

Happy Easter & Citizenship

HAPPY EASTER! To all of our freinds family & supporters. We are grateful for all you do for us in prayer and support. The Matthews would like to wish you all the happiest, safest & healthiest Easter. We hope that beyond the chocolate, eggs and Easter bunnies that you can rejoice with us in our Saviour’s resurrection. He is risen! Happy Easter!

Citizenship: For all who have sent questions on our citizenship application. We did receive the letter of acceptance for dual citizenship in Australia. Quite an exciting day. We will be attending a swearing in ceremony soon and it will all be official. To clarify, we will be dual citizens in Australia and the US.

Sending lots of joy your way during this incredible celebration season,

The adventure continues…
