We’ve been praying for—and been the subject of prayers from—the gardening group at the North Ringwood Uniting Church in Melbourne, Australia since last December. Their garden ministry with the same mission as ours—growing produce for the hungry.
We heard from them last week. They are approaching the end of a good growing season. Their summer crops are done and they are now ready to harvest broccoli, cabbages, cauliflower, onions, silverbeets, potatoes, and pumpkins.
They pass on the following prayer requests:
“We would appreciate prayer for the workers in our garden. We are all over 60 years of age and time and energy can be a problem. We also need patience and tolerance as we work with the intellectually disabled group that come to our garden.
I would also appreciate prayer as I am speaking at our church, as part of a series where we are exploring the local missions and ministries that we are involved in. The idea is to brainstorm any fresh expressions that we can bring to our ministries.”
This mutual prayer support works. They have had a very good year as we prayed for them, and their prayers that we get the resources we need have certainly been answered (think about the seeds, tiller, refrigerator, and the national Scotts grant that have come our way recently). God has blessed both them and us through our mutual prayers, so let’s keep it up!
