Here’s the latest from our partners in ministry at Redeemer Dubai…
1. The Gulf School of Theology is about to undertake its second class, this one being taught by Dr DA Carson on Jesus and the Gospels. There are currently 82 students registered, some of them flying in from nearby India and Nigeria. Please pray for the logistics of this class, as we are a little overwhelmed by such a large number of eager students! Our aim in the GST classes is to equip regional leaders.
Gloria got to teach the ladies at our church plant on the Eastern coast.
2. After teaching a week of classes, Carson will lead a conference for our church and others on the parables of Jesus. There are currently 450 people registered (and we’re expecting a couple hundred more!) for this event which will be held in the ballroom where our church gathers for corporate worship. Would you please pray that this teaching would strengthen our faith, embolden our witness in this place, and equip us to share our faith with others as we learn more about the way Jesus taught people His truth.
There are many other things we’d appreciate your prayers for. In general, we would appreciate prayer for our family as we prepare for an upcoming fundraising trip to the States plus a vacation. The girls have two more weeks of school, then the month of Ramadan will begin. This is a significant time in our region about which we will share more details and requests in a future email.
