Prayer & Praise (April 19-25)
- On Saturday we held our first of two preparatory sessions to help our summer missionaries get ready for training camp in June. (The picture above is of some of them hanging out and playing games after we were done for the day.) The weather was less than desirable, but we still made it!
I can already tell we are going to have a fun and strong crew this year. In this first session, we trained them in how to share the gospel in a child’s vocabulary using the Wordless Book. After much planning and preparation, it was exciting to finally see this year’s program get underway.
- On Friday, I was looking at having 18 summer missionaries signed up for this year. Over the weekend, that number dropped down to 14. This was a bit disappointing, but I know that God will send us exactly the young people he wants us to train and equip this year.
Please pray for wisdom in handling the new scheduling dynamics this creates for our 5-Day Clubs, or possibly for some late recruits (which would allow us to go through with our original scheduling goals).
- This Friday, April 24, we are having our monthly kids’ club at Salvation Army Red Shield. Praise God for this opportunity to teach the children and connect with them! Pray for Lauren, Larea, and I as we teach.
- Praise God for the fruitful times I have had studying 2 Peter the past few weeks! God is so good in giving us the Scriptures.
Thanks for your prayers.
