PHILIPPINES
Jonathan and Jingle Bradford
have recently finished a number of different outreaches in Manila. One was a series on Apologetics, which they used as an outreach. Each night took around three hours with two 50-minute sessions and an open Q&A, where Jonathan took live questions from the audience. It was attended by around 900 people each night and the feedback was excellent. Pray that the people who attended will take what they learned and share it with their friends, family and colleagues.
 

BOLIVIA

Mario and Helen Ponce -
This week there is a big pagan celebration. It lasts three days and people walk all night for 18km carrying stones to the church where the statue of Mary is. They believe she can give them houses and cars etc. On Friday night, the church will take the opportunity to share the gospel at the door of their church as people pass. The youth will prepare drinks and snacks so that the people will stop and listen. Please pray for that outreach.
  
FRANCE

Ian and Françoise Newberry -
This summer Ian will have given the Bible teaching at three family camps, reaching over 350 people. The first camp was for seniors in the southwest of France on 'Encouragement'. The second is at L'Eau Vive Provence and the third camp starts on the 12 of August in the southwest of France, where there will be over 220 participants - the theme there is 'How to cultivate the fruit of the Spirit'. These camps are opportunities to encourage Christians and reach non-Christians. For the camp at L'Eau Vive, Françoise put together a special programme for children aged 4 - 11. Pray that God will give them strength and that the Bible teaching will produce good fruit.
