PRAY FOR JOYCE IN SCHOOLS
Please continue to remember the work amongst the boys and girls. I rejoice in the number of opportunities to hold Bible Clubs in our Primary Schools. The majority of these are held during the day so as a result l am able to speak to the entire School. Others are held after School so only the children whose parents give consent can stay for the meetings. I am greatly encouraged by the help and support of Principals and teachers who welcome me into their schools. It has been most encouraging to see some children trust the Lord.

As well as the meetings in the schools l also keep busy with speaking at weekly children's meetings, school assemblies, deputation meetings and Ladies Meetings.

In January and February, I visited the following schools:
Jan 6th to 10th Bleary P.S
Jan 8th to 10th Pontyzpass P.S
Jan 20th to 24th Maralin P.S and Darkley P.S
Jan 27th to 31st Donacloney P.S
Feb 10th to 13th Scarva P.S.
Feb 24th to 28th Kingsmills P.S

I am booked this week, 2nd to 6th March, into Castleblaney P.S. Please pray for these meetings.

PRAY FOR RECOVERY
Please remember Rev Wesley Graham in prayer. Last weekend he took unwell, was taken into hospital for tests, and following scans has been diagnosed with a brain tumour. Understandably this has come as a terrible shock for him and his family, but he is in good spirits and trusting the Lord for the coming days.

Miss Margaret Russell is out of hospital and recovering in Nairobi following surgery on her shoulder. Her sister, Valerie, a nurse, has travelled out to be with her as she recovers. She is getting physio and they hope to travel back to Kitale later this week. Pray for Margaret - for her recovery and as she prepares to retire from her work in Kenya in the Spring.

PRAY FOR KENYA DURING FLOODING
Kenya is suffering from extremely high rainfall which has resulted in flooding since mid-October. The saturated ground in the hilly areas has given way causing severe landslides in populated areas.

It is estimated that at least 330,000 people are affected - 20,000 people have been displaced, 120 people have died, and 26,000 animals have been killed due to floods and landslides. It is reported that 72 deaths are from massive landslides in West Pokot, where our workers are located.

Major roads have been cut off in 11 counties, affecting accessibility to affected populations for delivery of humanitarian assistance, especially in parts of West Pokot. Health and hygiene remains a concern due to the submerging of toilets and contamination of the water supply, increasing the risk of waterborne diseases, especially cholera.

The Mission Board have given emergency aid assistance to people connected with our works in Kenya and specifically in Ortum, where there was a significant landslide. Click Here to see some photos.

Please pray about this situation; that the rains would subside and that the authorities would be able to contain any diseases that may spread following such a disaster.

SCHOOL OPENINGS
Over the past few weeks we have been very busy making new enquiries and following up on existing schools for assembly bookings and Scripture Union classes for the new terms ahead of us. We continue to request prayer for several schools that we've been actively seeking to get into including one in the special needs sector.

Despite one or two schools not being able to invite us back as yet, this year once again, the Lord has been most gracious with new openings in Belfast, Antrim town and Portadown. To date we have acquired over a hundred and thirty bookings in total with others still to come.

Do please pray much for the children in all these schools as they sit under the sound of the gospel message.

PRAY AS MILLERS RETURN HOME ON MEDICAL LEAVE
Thank you for your continued prayerful and practical support for us and the work in Uganda.

Some of you may be aware that I have had Type 1 Diabetes for most of my life. During this year I have been experiencing ongoing difficulties with my diabetic control, which have proved very difficult to address. This has now reached levels where it is necessary for us to return to Northern Ireland to address this issue and the Mission Board has accordingly granted a medical leave of absence.

We appreciate your prayers for us that soon my diabetic control will be restored without any long-term consequences. In the past I have suffered from diabetic-related eyesight problems and we pray that these will not return.

Pray also for the work in the Uganda, our missionary colleagues and those who will conduct the pulpit ministry at this time.

This is a Report from Rev Stephen Miller – Missionary to Uganda 2016 - 2019
