The Garden Tomb: “News and Prayer”

The Garden Tomb Shop has reopened after undergoing comprehensive renovation work.
We are very grateful to Simon and his team of local tradesmen who have done an amazing job, and to our local staff and volunteers who have persevered through the noise and dust for the last 5 months.

Please pray for:

  • Transformed lives:
    • we pray that people will encounter the Risen Christ as they tour the Garden.
      This testimony was shared by one of our volunteer guides earlier this month:

    A young man from London followed a number of groups I guided.  Asking him why, he said he liked what he was hearing, and style of presentation. Asked ‘are you a believer in Jesus?’ he said he wasn’t but was seeking.  He later asked if he could come to church and on Sunday he joined a group of us going to a local Baptist church.  Something was definitely going on with this man, a Chinese Malay from East London.  After a further chat with him two days later we said the believer’s prayer together”.

    We pray for many more testimonies like this!

  • GT Volunteers: with us now are Gwyneth Ferguson, Mandy Callf, Omer + Debora Thomassetti, Brian + Lynette Nibbe, Ken Newberry, Paul + Dawn Doble and Boyd + Deb Huff.
  • Local staff: together with the volunteers we seek to serve all who visit, praying that they might encounter the Risen Christ in the Garden, and also in us as we welcome and serve them.
  • The Garden Tomb Trustees pray for wisdom and vision as they continue to seek God’s direction for the ministry of the Garden Tomb.
  • Safety at the Garden Tomb, and in the surrounding area.

Join us in giving thanks for:

  • The completion of the shop renovation work
  • Garden Tomb visitors: we have seen visitor numbers increase significantly this last week, and we anticipate being very busy for the remained of the year.

Finally please continue to pray for the Peace of Jerusalem, and particularly for:

  • Believers living in The Land
  • Political and religious leaders, and other decision-makers

Philippians 4: 4-7 “Rejoice in the Lord always. I will say it again: Rejoice!  Let your gentleness be evident to all. The Lord is near. Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God; and the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus”
