Mike Jones asks, “Please pray for our missionaries as they gather this week in Rapid City, SD, for the first of several Staff Conferences this summer. Pray that Judie and I will be an encouragement to them. Pray for those attending who have gone through difficult situations, both personally and in ministry.Pray that our missionaries will return home ready to serve well.”
Brian Wechsler also shared some prayer requests:
We are about to begin our staff conference season and would especially appreciate your prayers that God would use the conferences to encourage our missionaries. Many will be traveling long distances, so please pray for travel mercies. Ron Sallee, Village Missionary at Machias Community Church in Machias, WA, will be the main speaker. I, Brian, will also be speaking twice and give missionaries an update on the Mission.
I would especially pray for strength for a very busy starting schedule. Saturday, May 30, I will travel to Manton, CA, to take part in the retirement of Mike and Gayle Steiner, the anniversary of the church, and the installation of new missionaries, Paul and Robin Crabtree. Sunday evening I fly home, and then Monday Carole and I will fly to Rapid City, SD, for the first conference. Friday we will leave to Edmonton, AB, to speak at a donor dinner sponsored by the area Village Missions churches. Saturday we fly home, and then Monday leave for the next conference in Graeagle, CA. We will only be able to do all this through God’s enabling power!
Caleb, our son, will be having surgery Thursday, May 28 to take out the hardware that is in his foot. After two weeks he can then begin physical therapy. Please pray for a successful surgery and that the Lord would restore the full use of his foot.
