Prayer & Praise (Aug 16-22)
- This week I started school again at Metro State. It was little bit surreal taking the bus downtown again after three months off! I am taking three classes this semester (9 hrs). Please pray that I will work hard, get a lot out of my studies, and do a good job of balancing work and school.
- Last week I told you that we had received 49% of the funds for our original budget for Christian Youth In Action (CYIA). We use these funds to cover everything from promotion & recruitment in the spring to general operating expenses in the summer to development work in the fall.
I am pleased to say we have now passed the halfway point! To date we have received $3,890 (or 51% of budget). This would mean we still need $3,760 (or 49%). However, as I also mentioned last week, we actually came in under budget in a number of key areas this summer. So I crunched the numbers this morning, and with it looks like with just $1,100 we will be able to pay off our expenses from the summer and cover our development work this fall! Please join with me in praying for the provision of these funds.
- On Aug 6, I had a meeting with our team leaders from the summer (pictured above) to get their feedback on how they thought the summer went, ideas for next year, etc. It went very well! Praise God for all of the great feedback they were able to give! It has been a blessing to work with them, and I look forward to making things even better next year.
Thanks for praying!
