Lenten Appeal Prayers 2013  |  Week 2

Dear Supporter,

Here are the prayer points for week 2 of Lent. If you have any questions about any of the projects please don't hesitate to reply to this email.

from the team at Anglican Missions
Transit House - Papua New Guinea
The Diocese of Aipo Rongo in Papua New Guinea is working towards becoming self sufficient. They are building a Transit House in Mt Hagen to enable the Diocese to raise its own money. This project raises funds for the remaining plumbing, electrical fittings, doors, painting, beds and bedding, and whiteware.

Pray for the people of Papua New Guinea; pray for the sick and the needy, and that through the Transit House the Diocese of Aipo Rongo can help these people. 
The proceeds from the Transit House will be used to fund programmes for youth, Mothers Union, education, health, HIV/AIDs, training for priests and catechists, and workshops on gender issues. The Diocese wish to enhance the spiritual and pastoral ministry of the whole diocese.
Mission Support - Polynesia
Support the clergy of Polynesia. About 21 stipendiary clergy and 6 non-stipendiary clergy are supported by this Anglican Missions Board project. This is in recognition of the evangelism, mission and outreach work that they are involved with which is an on-going programme of the Diocese.

Pray for the clergy of Polynesia and that students in their congregations are given guidance, wisdom, and spiritual enrichment.
Reverend Tuckwon is priest-in-charge at St. Luke’s Church, Laucala Bay, Suva. He is supported in his work by Anglican Missions. His parish is near to the University of the South Pacific (USP) and the majority of the people that worship there are from institutions affiliated to the USP. As a former employee of the USP he knows the area well and is licensed as Anglican Chaplain to the USP. During the university academic year, 80% of the worshippers at St. Luke’s are students from the Church of Melanesia studying in tertiary institutions in Suva. Revd Tuckwan and Tanya also exercise a vibrant youth ministry and many young people from the nearby squatter settlements of Vatuwaqa are members of the youth group.

Ordinands in Training - Iran
The Ordinand Training project aims to provide trained pastoral leadership to those serving the Anglican Church in Iran. This is an amazing step for the future of the Church in Iran.

The Diocese of Iran works in Isfahan, Golfa, Sheraz and Tehran. For some time they have felt the need to train qualified individuals who could be ordained to fill the gap in Pastoral leadership for these congregations.

Pray for the preparation of ordinands as the Anglican Church in Iran seeks to be a faithful Christian presence.

Tech for Kids - Palestine, Jerusalem
Tech for Kids will help the Episcopal Technological & Vocational Training Center (ETVTC) to buy computers, chairs, and a server for their technology department in order to create more opportunities for the children of Ramallah.

Pray for the students of the ETVTC, that they are inspired to make the most of the opportunities for further knowledge given to them.
Technology education is an essential part of education, however most Palestinian schools lack the resources to provide it. As a consequence, many young Palestinians do not gain abilities or discover aptitudes in technological fields. Vocational diplomas in technology can offer improved employment opportunities, but families typically do not consider this path. The goal of the ETVTC is to give students opportunities to identify vocational skills and access training opportunities before graduating high school.
