Prayer & Praise (Feb 21-27)
- A big praise this week: in our Good News Club last Wednesday, a girl named Jade (who is new to the daycare and new to the club) trusted in Christ as her Savior! Her interest in the gospel was palpable all throughout as Hannah taught the Bible lesson. When Hannah gave the invitation, Jade immediately responded and Hannah was able to counsel her one-on-one. Praise God!
You might remember that in December a boy named Mario placed his faith in Christ at Good News Club. Both Jade and Mario got their very own Bibles so that they can begin to probe the Scriptures and grow in their faith. Please pray for both of these children. I don’t know much about Jade yet, but I know Mario comes from a difficult family situation, and he will need Christ to be his daily source of strength.
- Last week I got an e-mail from Martha Olango, a friend of mine who attended Calvary Bible College at the same time as I and also attended the same church in Kansas City. She is now serving the Lord with CEF back in her home of East Africa.
One of her responsibilities is helping with the Christian Youth In Action (CYIA) training camps for Kenya, Uganda, and Tanzania. These trainings take place in December and January. She sent me a copy of her latest newsletter with pictures and a report from these CYIA programs. I thought I would pass it along for you to enjoy as well! You can check it out here.
- Tomorrow (Thursday, February 25) I am going to Colorado Christian University. It is their missions week, and I am going to present opportunities for summer internships with CEF of Denver, as well as full-time service opportunities for graduating seniors. I will get to set up a display table in chapel, and also have an informal lunch meeting with any students who are interested. Please pray for this opportunity and any meaningful connections it might provide!
