Prayer & Praise (May 23-29)
- This past weekend (May 21-23), we gathered together our six student leaders for this summer and held our second annual “CYIA Team Leader retreat.” It was great time!
We conducted a number of training sessions where we dug deep into the dynamics of teamwork and ways that they could be effective leaders of their teams. We also had a couple of spiritual challenge sessions, and I believe the student leaders came away spiritually refreshed. Please pray for them this summer as they seek to serve their peers and reach children for Christ!
- On Sunday, May 23, we also held a fundraising luncheon for CYIA at my church. There are three Sunday morning services, and we served food after all three (although we sold out just as the third service was letting out!). All in all, praise God we raised $730 for Summer 2010!!! I also had some great conversations with members of the church about the summer ministry.
- CYIA training camp begins in less than two weeks. There is much to be done between now and then. Pray for me to stay on track and organized as I tackle the various tasks.
Thanks for your prayers and support!
