Today we pray for our Missionary Sue Priestley who is transitioning from over 40 years of faithful full time service with Operation Mobilization (OM).  During that time she has served in many different positions, in many different countries, but has always been motivated by a desire to see people get to know Jesus. 
This note from Sue recalls her transitions of the last year and shares her prayer requests for this next transition.
"My time with God has been a help as I have gone through various transitions in the past 18 months or so. From changing roles in OM, experiencing COVID restrictions and working from home (like many of you), moving back to my home city after 40 years and being remote from all my colleagues, losing my Dad just 4 days after getting back to Victoria – I can say it has been a challenge. Such a roller coaster of emotions, all very normal for a time of transition and there is more to come as I am aware of my own lack of capacity for ministry I have loved. So, with God’s prompting, effective 31 March 2021, I will finish all my OM responsibilities.

Please pray for:

  1. This transition out of a ministry that I have loved ‘heart & soul’ for the past 40 years.  It is time to step away and I am sure of God’s leading, but it is sad as well.  Pray for the mourning.  At the same time I have a great sense of anticipation for what is next!  I want to walk this transition journey well.
  2. I am planning a ‘sabbatical’ for April/May, when I look forward to disconnecting from almost all technology.  I am not sure of all I will do during this time, but a key focus will be to spend time with the Lord and discern what plans He is inviting me into.  Pray I will hear His voice.
  3. I still have a passion for the lost, especially those who do not live within access to a church or anyone who knows Jesus.  I can always be in prayer for these people around the world, but I wonder if there is some way God will open up for me to still be involved.
