This Week's News

News from Wayne & Helen
Ben was able to get his final vaccination OK. They survived their long flights and arrived safely. They’ve been at the SIM Guest House but were due to move on 13th April to a place closer to language school. Caleb begins school at Bingham Academy on Monday 16th; Wayne and Helen start language school the same day. Please pray for patience and concentration for learning Amharic; getting to know lots of new people; adjusting to new routines e.g. soaking fruit and veg in bleach, not using tap water to brush teeth, sporadic water/electricity/internet; for better health as all 5 of them have had a tummy bug. Give thanks for the encouragement of the Commissioning Service and final SIM training before departure.
To receive the Mayhews’ prayer letters please contact SIM or the church office.
