Prayer & Praise (June 28 - July 11)
- June 22-26 was our first week of 5-Day Clubs this summer! There were some last minute cancellations and other scheduling headaches, but once those were worked out everything went great. I think our 1st-year summer missionaries really enjoyed their first full week of teaching!
Please pray that our future weeks of clubs would continue to be effective in reaching children for Jesus and spiritually forming the hearts and minds of our summer missionaries.
- July 5-11 we are taking eight of our summer missionaries on a trip to CEF World HQ in Warrenton, Missouri (about 1 hr west of St. Louis) to do some volunteer service, learn about CEF’s ministry worldwide, and meet other summer missionaries from around the nation! It is almost 800 miles from Denver to Warrenton, so we will traveling all day on Sunday, July 5, and Saturday, July 11. Please pray for a safe trip!
Pray also that the glimpse into CEF’s ministry worldwide would impact the students. Maybe God is calling some of them into full-time ministry. May He is even calling some of them into further ministry with CEF. Who knows? Whatever the case may be, I hope and pray that this will be a fun and fruitful trip for all who go!
- Praise God for the opportunities I have already had this summer to connect with some of the students personally. No matter how much planning and fundraising and promotion and recruitment and teaching and training I do, the fact is that ministry always happens in relationships. Please pray for many more opportunities to connect with our summer missionaries in the weeks to come.
Thanks for praying!
