As a prisoner for the Lord, then, I urge you to live a life worthy of the calling you have received.  Be completely humble and gentle; be patient, bearing with one another in love.  Make every effort to keep the unity of the Spirit through the bond of peace.  There is one body and one Spirit, just as you were called to one hope when you were called; one Lord, one faith, one baptism; one God and Father of all, who is over all and through all and in all.  Ephesians 4:1-6

We are saddened by the disaster in Attapeu this week.  Please join us in prayer.  Pastor Tony has written a special statement which can be viewed by following this link.  Here is an excerpt:

"Please join with me in urging people to pray for God's comfort and help for the thousands of people whose lives have been devastated by the flooding.  Pray that the politicians, government departments, aid agencies and others involved in bringing relief may do their jobs well.  Pray for co-operation and a spirit of unity as different groups try to help, that a concern for the people may prevail over all other lesser concerns.  Pray for the rescuers and others concerned with providing shelter, food, healthcare, and sanitation that they may be strengthened and enabled to fulfil these needs.  Pray and keep on prayer, long after this disaster ceases to be headline news.  Pray that God's concern for all will be made known.  Pray that somehow through this terrible tragedy, things will get better and that ultimately God will use what has happened for good".

Then Jesus went around teaching from village to village.   Calling the Twelve to him, he began to send them out two by two and gave them authority over impure spirits.  These were his instructions: “Take nothing for the journey except a staff—no bread, no bag, no money in your belts.  Wear sandals but not an extra shirt.  Whenever you enter a house, stay there until you leave that town.  And if any place will not welcome you or listen to you, leave that place and shake the dust off your feet as a testimony against them.”  They went out and preached that people should repent. They drove out many demons and anointed many sick people with oil and healed them.
Mark 6:6b-13
