This month, we welcome to the website our new missionary partners Ali and Cathy Hunt with their family Abigail and Kirstin. They are going to Cambodia this summer and will be sending us regular updates on how they are getting on. The first of these appear below along with some prayer and praise points.
HUNT FAMILY NEWSLETTER
I lift up my eyes to the hills. From where does my help come? Psalm 121:1
Prayer and Praise points
• Thank God for our studies and all we are learning about Him.
• Thank God for an increase in financial provision so we are now 62.5% supported, and pray on for us to reach 80% by the end of April, so we can book flights and our arrival in Cambodia is not delayed. And please pray for 100% support too!
• Thank God for Kirstin’s good health.
• Please continue to be praying for good transitions and saying good-bye well, and for patience in the waiting.
• Please pray for a restful break on the Isle of Mull this coming week.
CAMBODIA PRAYER INFO:
The Cambodia Daily reports: The Environment Ministry is study-ing water samples from Preah Vihear province to find out what has been killing thousands of fish in the Stung Sen River, where villagers are reportedly blaming a sugarcane plantation.
Please pray that corporations run by non-nationals would respect Cambodia’s countryside and peoples.
Listening to Scripture class—Scottish Baptist College
I have read or heard Psalm 121 3 times this week. A great reminder that our Creator God is the one we trust despite all that is going on in our world and our lives. Would you pray for us to look to God for help in all things?
To give you a flavour of our studies, let me recap on the past week. On Tuesday we studied virtue ethics, and the ethics of healthcare rationing. On Wednesday we visited a crematorium, graveyard and funeral directors as the trainee ministers among us were guided
through how to lead a funeral service. On Thurs-day we had an excellent lesson on cross-cultural hermeneutics led by Derek Newton who spent many years in Indonesia and the Philippines with OMF. A very varied and interesting week, what a privilege to study for this year at the Scottish Bap-tist College!
Encouragingly, Kirstin’s hospital appointment went well and we don’t believe there is anything to hold up medical clear-ance.
Also encouragingly, our support level is 62.5%. This means that we are
only about £11,000 short of our annual minimum target in pledges. Thank you to so many who have giv-en. Please do pray for pledged giving to in-crease before our dead-line at the end of April, or we will be unable to go to Cambodia in the summer as planned. We trust in the Lord’s provi-sion and timing.
With grateful thanks for your partnership in mis-sion.
Happy Easter 🙂
Ali, Cathy, Abigail and Kirstin xxx
