This week we have cause for thanks!  Claire has had the result of her tests, and has been told that the cancer has gone from head, bowel and kidney.  The rest of her body is stable, but the consultant was amazed.  Keep praying – let’s amaze the Doctor a bit more! There are still many in our Fellowship to pray for.  Please remember Mary (Parsons) Ted and Margaret, Margaret and David, Vera, Jimmy Barber and Vanessa, and Ron Watkins.  Please keep praying!  Don’t forget to continue to pray for Allie.  She thanks you for your prayers She says ’God has been good to us, and at the moment I am well. We pray on!  Barbara Emma has been very poorly this week.  Please pray that she will soon be much better.

Iris had her hip operation on Tuesday and is quite  satisfactory.

The Fellowship would like to thank Elizabeth for all the hard work she has put in arranging the Chapel Christmas dinner.   I am sure that everyone had a lovely time  Elizabeth would like everyone to know that ‘The Downlong boys’ won the quiz!

News from Janet O’Shea  Just received news from Magnus that the ferry we travel on the Mabang sank 2 days ago.  Many people lost their lives in the fast flowing Rokel River.  Two of the children who attend our school were drowned – Hava and Aminata – they were 10 years old.  Abdul who lived next door to Bethesda drowned saving others.  Please remember the families of these dear people in your prayers and the children as they have lost a friend.

Thought for the Week

God broke into human history to offer us the gift of SALVATION!
