Student Lelea asks us to pray for Christian student ministry in her university: “We want to follow Jesus in all aspects of our lives, every day of the week - that God might use us to draw others to himself. The majority of New Zealanders, and most of our friends, identify as having no religion. Our university lecturers can be scathing about Christianity. There’s lots of pressure to shrink back and fit in. At the same time, however, general “spirituality” is becoming more attractive to young people; there are gospel opportunities with that!”

Please pray for the Reflections radio show from Torch Trust as it airs in New Zealand. Pray that it will reach and uplift blind and partially sighted people and share God's love with them.

January 2023

Martin and Joyce (from the UK) will move to Thailand to serve with WEC’s International Directors as Deputies, having served as Directors of our EastWest College in New Zealand recently. Pray for Renate who takes over that role. The college is very low in students (mostly from abroad), so pray for more new applicants particularly from New Zealand in 2023, and for the two short-term workers from the College spending 1-2 months abroad in this holiday break.

November 2022

As a Branch Australia is committed to praying for 10 new members per year over a 4-year period including 4 or 5 short-termers switching to long-term service each year. New Zealand are praying for a net growth of three members per year, six short-term members, and at least one of those short termers becoming a long-term member. Both Australia and New Zealand had very tight travel restrictions during COVID lockdown, which greatly impacted WEC’s two Missionary Training Colleges. Pray that by 2023 we will see both student applications and mobilisation opportunities pick up again.

Serving In Mission

September 2022

Pray for young people to catch the mission vision in ways that are possible at this time; that our 14 existing prayer groups grow and attract younger generations; for the wellbeing of our mission partners in areas with fragile health systems as they work within the often changed circumstances of the communities they were called to and find visas harder to get, and for more God-given opportunities to serve and encourage the New Zealand church in global mission.
