April 3: Ed & Ruth Peters, Garrington, AB
In this rural area in the foothills of the Rocky Mountains, the people pride themselves in having a front-row seat to some of the most beautiful pictures and the best playground man could possibly enjoy. There is no town called Garrington; the oil/gas wells, bridge, recreational subdivision, and the church are all that is identified with that name. Our mission field is a 35-mile square box, just outside the 5 surrounding towns. Farming/ranching, oil/gas industry, and work in the surrounding towns sustain the area. Pray for effective means of reaching our community with the Gospel. Pray for wisdom for our leadership as we seek to lead & move this growing body in the ways of our Lord. Pray for our youth ministry; they’re not drawing a huge crowd, but lately about 70% have been from non-churched homes. Pray for the leaders to be able to take advantage of this open door.
