We have several upcoming meetings involving the Village Missions Contenders Discipleship Initiative. Class sessions are being videotaped and developed for online and DVD use and supplemental educational materials are also being developed. Please pray for wisdom for the mentoring component, especially for individuals who take the courses who do not attend a church served by Village Missions. We praise the Lord for a good response to the funding needs for this initiative. Praise that a company in Canada has volunteered to design a logo. Please pray for wisdom as they work on the design.
Judie and Mike Jones will be attending a mini conference in California this week. Please pray that those attending will be encouraged and ready to head back to their churches. Pray for the main speaker who will be bring a series on spiritual leadership. Mike will also have a session and give a mission update.Pray for our application process as my Administrative Assistant, Lisa West, works at getting all the paperwork in order for our spring Candidate school. It looks like we may have 9 couples attending. We currently have 17 churches in the US and 8 churches in Canada waiting for leadership. Pray for those churches as they patiently wait for a new leader.
