Prayer for Tasmania and Papua New Guinea
EASTER THIS WEEK
He is risen! Happy Easter! Pray for our state as we enter into Holy Week, leading up to Easter. Please pray that God may speak into Tasmanians’ lives this Easter.
PNG NEEDS YOUR PRAYERS
COVID-19 is spreading rapidly right now in Papua New Guinea. Health resources are severely limited. The government is scrambling to respond. Given PNG’s close proximity to northern Australia, this outbreak is also a serious risk to public health in Australia. Australian Aid is providing vaccines. Please pray now!Local News and Dates
EMERGENCY FUNDS NEEDED!
At the very point when most needed, the three Baptist hospitals in regional PNG (Telefomin in the Sandaun Province, Tinsley and Kompain) may need to close due to a lack of Personal Protection Equipment (PPE) for staff. Almost 40,000 people in the region surrounding Tinsley Hospital alone, will be affected unless the hospital receives emergency funds.
Please consider giving now to help fund Personal Protective Equipment through this link.
This fund is being operated by Baptist World Aid Australia.
PASTORS PLEASE NOTE!
Pastors’ re-registration is now overdue. Any pastor who has not re-applied for registration (or is not sure) must contact Jeff McKinnon asap – firstname.lastname@example.org .
Daylight saving ends on Easter morning, Sunday 4 April.
Reflect: Of first importance: that Christ died for our sins according to the Scriptures, that he was buried, that he was raised on the third day according to the Scriptures.1 Corinthians 15:3
