Paul, Lorraine, Cameron and Caleb McCaw ask for your prayers as they prepare to celebrate Christmas at Mayo Street Mission Hall.
The family, who serve with the Belfast City Mission there, have sent us this latest report and set of prayer points covering their activities in the run-up to the 2018 festive season.
“It is through Christ that we have been given this love and burden for the people of the Mayo Street area. It is His love that complies us to knock doors, distribute food parcels, make tea, have meetings, visit people and serve others in whatever way we can.
Reflecting on the past year, where has it gone? It has been a tough year, a busy year and an encouraging year. Tough in that Paul’s health hasn’t been so good, but with some medication it has improved slightly. He is still awaiting some tests, so please pray he would get them soon. It has been busy with just the usual work of the hall, and it has been encouraging with lots more kids attending Mums And Young Ones & Kids Club. Even a few from the local area are coming on a regular basis to our Sunday evening service. It has also been encouraging to receive more adult help with our work.
Lots of events to pray for as the McCaw’s prepare to celebrate Christmas at Mayo Street
