Edition 99/2015 JOB 14:7-9 (New King James Version)

Pray for Jean Bosco Tshiswaka, Timothy Mission Partner working with the Diocese of Katanga's Kimbilio Project plans to visit the UK from the end of August till early October. Tshiswaka has recently just submitted his visa application to the British embassy in Kinshasa (the Congolese capital) approximately 1,000 miles from Lubumbashi. Due to the high cost of the airfare he is obliged to wait in Kinshasa the 21 days it will take for a response to his visa application. We would appreciate your thoughts and prayers that he would be granted a visa quickly enabling him to come and share more about Kimbilio's work in the UK.

Pray that the university may be able to start the new term in September as projected. “The Bujumbura Christian University hopes to open again on Monday 24 September.My difficulty is to persuade potential sponsors that this will happen...ie. to financially act because they have faith in God's plan - even before solid evidence is given,' says Donald.
