As You Pray This Week
Dear Praying Friends, Thank you for praying for the Red Deer Donor Dinner! God answered prayer. Two weeks before the dinner we only had about six reservations but the reservations started to come in as you prayed and seventy attended the dinner – more than last year! We were able to raise about $14,000 at the dinner for Village Missions Canada. I also praise the Lord for the opportunity to preach at the Meadowbrook Community Church and attend their Sunday School picnic afterwards. Pray for wisdom as we consider what to do next year in the Red Deer area. We are considering a barbecue/picnic to allow younger folks to attend. Please continue to pray for the health and healing of our Village Missionaries and their family members and for wisdom for our board that manages our self-funded health plan. Our health plan continues to be in a very difficult situation and we are exploring several different options. Pray for wisdom as the U.S. Supreme Court decides this month about the health care act – this also has affected our plan somewhat. This week we are conducting an abbreviated candidate school for one associate couple and one full-time couple. Sometimes we do this if a couple needs to be placed quickly. Pray for a valuable school and wisdom in acceptance and placement. Please pray for the mini-conference in Graeagle, CA, that starts next Monday evening, July 11. Pray for safety as the missionary families travel and that they will be refreshed and renewed. Thank you for praying!
