Prayer and News Update August 2019

Getting ready for the new term

We had a few busy weeks bringing this academic year to an end, but we managed to get everything finished up very well.

At this time of year getting the opportunity to rest and recharge is important for the staff team. There is still plenty of work to be done over the summer, but please pray for the IBI team as we each take some annual leave.

Staff day 2019

We had an IBI staff away day earlier in the month; we went to Greystones in the rain! It was good to have the opportunity to spend time together and pray together. One of the highlights of the day was being able to spend time with Sarah, who is currently waiting for surgery.

Going around the table starting on the left: Sarah Crane, Becky Schuster, Patrick Mitchel, Anna Byrne, Jonathan Schuster, Mimi Kelly, Joan Singleton, Steven Singleton, Paul Perry, Luohan and Louise Halpin.

Please keep on praying for Sarah as she is currently waiting for an appointment for surgery. Pray that this would come through soon.

Student recruitment.

We asked you last time to pray with us 10 full-time applications for September. We are nearly halfway there, so please keep on praying.

If you know anyone who might be interested in signing up, please send them the links below to our video and information leaflets.
