July 12: Guy & Geni Shields, Sunnyside, OR

Posted in: Prayer Spotlight
Date: July 8, 2015

Shields-Guy-Geni-SquareSunnyside Community Church is in Damascus, OR, about 15 miles from downtown Portland. Mt. Hood towers majestically to the east. The area has a rural appearance, with numerous market gardens and nurseries. However, the traffic on Highway 212, the road through Damascus, is high volume. The church is bordered on two sides by a subdivision and two other subdivisions are in walking distance.  Many residents are Russian or Ukrainian.  We recently moved into the new parsonage on the church property and are trusting this will provide greater opportunities to build relationships with those living so near the church. Neighborhood kids frequently play in the church’s grassy field, presenting a ready-made opportunity to get acquainted with them. Pray that believers at SCC will grow in their walk with God through the preaching of the Word, and unbelievers will be saved through the proclamation of the Gospel. Pray that our “7 Wednesdays” summer ministry will be impactful in the neighborhood as the kids are invited to join in for Bible lessons, singing, and games. Pray for the fall ministries as we begin to plan and prepare for Good News Club at the local elementary school and Kids Club at the church on Wednesday evening. Pray for Guy as he prepares to speak at a conference for Filipino Pastors in Manila in October. SCC is committed to sponsoring 100 Pastors at $25 each as well as travel costs for Guy.  Pray for God’s financial provision.
