The Road to Lima
Final weeks as we count down to the start of our 6th Triennial Global Consultation.
Week 10: 17th to 23rd August: Visa on Arrival Submission
It was a tremendous answer to prayer to have an agreement from the Peruvian authorities that all participants can obtain a visa on arrival. The administration challenge is that we had to submit the list of all who would require this no later than the 21st August, so as to allow time for the authorities to process this and return a conformation latter which all participants needed to carry with them.
Submission of the list was on Friday 21st August – thanks to everyone who managed to send their information in on time
Prayer point: please pray with us the that the Peru authorities would be able to turn this quickly into the confirmation letters so we can send these to each person on time this next week.
Prayer point: for all who travel that no airline will stop travel and that each participant will have a smooth and safe journey to Lima.
Week 11: 24th to 30th August: final information is being collated for the handbook and translation is being undertaken in earnest.
Please pray for each of our translators as they face the mammoth task of getting all the resources and materials into 5 languages in the next 10 days.
Please pray for the remaining interpreters that still need to be found for the consultation. Pray we can identify the right people and ensure they are present in Lima.
Week 12: 31st August to 6th September: we have appealed persistently over the last few months for sponsorship support for the remaining participants who are attempting to get to Peru. Thank you to all who have shared in this and enabled a number of people to attend. We are still looking to raise for the remaining participants to attend:
• Latin American countries: 15 participants still needing help
• Zambia: 1 person
• Burundi: 1 person
• Malawi: 1 person
• Sierra Leone: 1 person
• Uganda: 1 person
• Tanzania: 1 person
• Kenya: 1 person
• Cameroon: 1 person
• DRC: 1 person
• Cambodia: 1 person
• Nepal: 1 person
• Haiti: 1 person

Week 12: 7th September 13th September: Final preparations
Our international Board meeting takes place on the 11th and 12th September in Lima: please pray for this important time together as we appoint new Board members, and prayerfully consider the next few years together for Micah.
Pray for the Consultation team as we do all the last minute preparations of printing, set up and reception of participants who start to arrive this week. Pray for health and strength and joy as we seek to serve all who attend and those who cannot be with us.
Pray for the safe arrival of all our participants, speakers and volunteers.
Consultation Week 14th to 18th September: Listening to God, listening to one another
Please pray daily for our time together that God would reveal his presence and will to us as we deliberate through the issues of concern.
Pray we may be united in our decisions for the way ahead.
Pray for the friendships and partnership that evolve form this week that God would enable us to bear much fruit.
As people travel home and for those who tour Peru – may God grant us his Shalom and his vision. Pray for the safe return of all who attend and the constant reminder to act of what has been learnt and agreed on.
Without the Holy Spirit guiding us nothing is transforming!
