News from David Blackman

Dear Rachel and Friends at Grace,

Thank you again for your prayer support. Thank you also for your monthly gift of $300. May the Lord continue to meet Grace’s needs also.




Praise God:

  • For the huge response amongst Alyawarr speakers at the Easter Convention;
  • For the AuSIL Conference, which went very well and was a great encouragement;
  • For former AuSIL members and other Wycliffe people, who helped make the 50th anniversary celebration so special;
  • That the public Expo held after the Conference was well-attended and very worthwhile;
  • For what has been achieved by the grace of God over the past 50 years;
  • That the boys enjoyed the week.


Please pray:

  • That church leaders in Alyawarr communities will be able to provide suitable teaching for new Christians and for those who’ve recommitted their lives to the Lord;
  • That Alyawarr Scriptures will be used in this ministry;
  • For stamina and clear thinking as I process the very long list of changes to be made to the Alyawarr dictionary (I’m finding it hard to make progress with other things needing attention);
  • That dictionary work can be finalised before too long, so I can able to get back to preparing episodes 12-15 of the Luke DVD script;
  • That I will be able to sort out the sound files for the Picture Dictionary, so the publisher can mount an interactive version on the internet.
