The Positive Parenting Program (PPP) in Honiara
What a mouthful for a great program that we are supporting in the Solomon Islands!
What is it? There are twelve women, all MU Members, who recently received their certificates as trainers in the PPP. They are now ready to train facilitators who will help parents to understand, nurture, and care for their children in the midst of social upheaval and changing values.
Please pray for all involved in the program and especially the children that each will grow in their love for the Lord Jesus and one
another. This is a wonderful way in which we can identify with our sisters in Honiara.
The MU Australia Overseas Target Fund for 2013-2014 is "Literacy in Ethiopia".

The MU Sydney Project for 2014 in partnership with The Archbishop of Sydney’s Anglican Aid is the Ethiopia Child Survival Project.
In the following 10 minute video Bishop Grant LeMarquand, the Area Bishop for the Horn of Africa, shares about the ministry of the Anglican Church in Gambella (Ethiopia), and the East African revival.
Dr Wendy LeMarquand, wife of the Bishop of Gambella, is looking forward to our partnership with them in this project. In her letter to us, she says that the MU women of Gambella
‘have known suffering and hardship – and yet they live in a generosity of heart and a fullness of faith that can hold both joy and suffering at the same time. They have much to teach us’.
Dr LeMarquand has asked us to pray for all involved in the project and particularly for three Mothers' Union Project Workers in Gambella.
Achwa Obang is the Anuak Mothers' Union Coordinator. Achwa helps supervise the training that the representatives take to the local Anuak churches in the villages around Gambella town.
Cham is an Anuak woman of the Gambella region who has known much hardship and sorrow. She is incredibly intelligent and questions and contributes wonderfully in their teaching sessions. Cham is assisting Achwa in some of the supervising work in the most remote area of Dimma.
Sarah Nyabuony is the MU Coordinator for the Gambella town region of Western Ethiopia.
