Official Provincial Elders’ News for October 2013

Prayer Day for Children

On a Sunday in October, congregations of the Northern and Southern Provinces are invited to join with thousands of other congregations across the nation in the thirteenth annual national observance of Children’s Sabbath. Endorsement of the Children’s Sabbath was made by the Provincial Elders’ Conferences in January 1994.

Prayer Day for World Mission, 
October 13, 2013

The second Sunday in October has been designated as a special Day of Prayer for World Mission. Pray for the ministries in our Partner Provinces—Alaska, Guyana, Eastern West Indies, Honduras, Labrador, Nicaragua, Costa Rica and Western Tanzania; our new work in Peru, Sierra Leone and Cuba; and for wisdom and guidance for our Worldwide Unity. And pray that God will persist in revealing to us where the church in North America is called to mission, both locally and globally, that God’s love may be known throughout the world.
For specific information for your prayers about these and other new and continuing ministries, please see the BWM website, www.moravianmission.org.
