19th-25th June

  • Give thanks for the Synod meetings that took place this week.  There are aspects of the work and ministry that cause us to rejoice, remembering that it is Jesus who builds his church, remembering that Jesus reigns victoriously. We have seen pastoral students raised up, numerous churches planted, institutions funded, and mission efforts multiplying in numerous fields. In the midst of the darkness and the disciplining hand of God, we see his love for us and we see his glory. 

Give thanks for all these things.

We, along with April and members of her family, request prayer that our Sovereign God would see fit to spare her life to continue to serve Him, her loving family, and the community, for years to come. While this may seem to many as “unlikely”, we ask that you pray with us for God’s healing mercies upon her.
