November 2019 News from Anne

Dear Prayer Partners,

On the first of the month, I begin a round of visits to all the EE leaders and teams in the Multiplying Nations in Oceania. It begins in Papua New Guinea and then on to the Solomon Islands. A few days later, I fly to the Marshall Islands, a new Multiplying Nation that I’ve not visited before, and then to Fiji and Australia, back to New Zealand for our own National Board Planning Day on 3 December, and finally Vanuatu.   It’s going to be a lot of travel in a short time, but I’m really looking forward to it; just don’t mention my carbon footprint!  The purpose is to  conduct the Annual Review together with the respective National Director and Board members, to assess progress, reveal area of the national ministry needing attention and, above all, encourage, help and focus the work for next year. But the visit to each nation is much more than just doing a review!

Now that you hopefully have a better picture of what happens on each of these visits, please pray for God to guide me, give relevance, discernment and clarity of expression with each of these different national teams. May ‘EE Team Oceania’ be blessed, encouraged and strengthened by our meetings together as we celebrate 2019 and look forward to 2020.

 Anne Bowie, VP Oceania
