Mission Prayer

This week we are praying for the Mahons

The Mahon family are serving in Peru. Based in Iquitos, they are working alongside the Loreto Association of Baptist Churches as they look to implement a sustainability plan over the coming years. They are involved in teaching and curriculum development at the Nauta Integral Mission Training Centre, and also support the running of the centre. Dave and Michele are both Baptist ministers and have served at Brockley Baptist Church in south-east London for four years. They have three children: Jonathan, Ruth and Phoebe.
