those wonderful harmonies. Playing their own hits, plus songs from The Seekers,
Peter Paul and Mary, John Denver, The Beatles… Free admission (a collection

making workshop at Zion
Sunday 28 July
Bring a packed lunch along and there will be a small
presentation about poster making before you get to work! The aim is to produce, between us, enough
posters to be able to change the front noticeboard on a regular basis. Themes and ideas will be given. Card and
craft materials will be provided. You do not have to be an artist or creative
to join in. It will hopefully be an afternoon of fun and fellowship and
hopefully at the end we will have enough posters to last the whole year. Work together or on your own.
‘Holiday @ Home’
from Tuesday 3 September
‘Holiday @ Home’ will have a Scottish theme this year. Tuesday 3 September to Thursday 5 September.
Please put the dates in your diaries and invite your friends and neighbours
along. Programmes will be ready shortly.
Mission Aviation Fellowship (MAF)
Jack and Adrian have posted a few photos on our Facebook
page of their time in Sudan working with Mission Aviation Fellowship. This
gives an insight into the work they are involved in.
Greetings from MAF Uganda:
We are about half way through our 6 weeks as Relief Operations
Manager with MAF in Uganda. Adrian is working with the MAF staff at the new
airport office. We are organising flights every day. We regularly carry staff
for churches, missions and humanitarian organisations working with refugees,
churches and hospitals in Northern Uganda, Ebola patients and churches in East
DR Congo and churches and missions in South Sudan.
This week we had a request for an emergency flight to bring
an injured man from Moroto to Kampala.
He had been in a motorcycle accident and was unconscious still after 3 days. He
is a driver for a church project working with aids patients and their families.
He has a large family who would really value your prayers please for his
recovery please. Moroto is a small and remote town of about 15,000 people
living in settlements in the Karamoja area of Uganda. This is an area where we
fly to several times each week. It takes about an hour and twenty minutes to
fly from Kampala. By road it would be around 10 hours.
Pray for all the refugees from South Sudan living in Uganda
and the people from many churches, missions and other organisations working
with them. Many have suffered loss of family members and all have lost their
homes when they fled the conflict.
Please pray for the situation surrounding the Ebola outbreak
in Congo. There has been a lot of conflict and violence in the area causing
thousands of people to flee from their homes. This makes it even more difficult
for the health staff to prevent the Ebola from spreading. We have already had 3
cases confirmed in the Kasese area of Uganda - about 180 miles from us in
Kampala. It has also meant the authorities have have closed Bunia Airport to
flights from Uganda. This makes it very difficult for us to get staff and
supplies quickly to where they are needed as we have to do indirect flights to
get people there. Please pray that there would be a change in the authorities
mind to allow us to resume direct flights. Please also pray for the health
workers we work with, who are dealing with the very hard situations they face.
Please pray for the MAF team who are working with the Uganda
Civil Aviation Authority on 2 July when they will be carrying out an annual
inspection to renew our licence to fly here. We would ask for a good meeting
with them and for us to be able to maintain a good relationship.
Pray for all the staff organising our flights and the pilots
flying the aircraft to the many remote places where our Christian partners work
bringing help and hope to isolated people.
“God is our refuge and strength, an ever-present help in
trouble.” Psalm 46:1 NIVUK
Many thanks for your support and prayers which we appreciate
very much. God bless. Adrian - RELIEF
