July 8: Tony & Cathy Bittner, Skykomish, WA
Less than 200 people call Skykomish their home, but those numbers swell at times because many of the houses in the town serve as recreational cabins for skiers and hikers. Skykomish School District has a population of around 600 year-round residents, and the school presently serves approximately 40 students from pre-school through 12th grade. Most of the community is beyond school age. Only a few businesses provide services and jobs are scarce. Many of the residents travel great distances to work each day, or are underemployed. Pray for continued spiritual growth for those individuals in the community who have made a commitment to follow Jesus as their Lord and Savior. Pray also for individuals that are seeking truth about life and what happens after death; Scripture promises that those who seek will find. We would also love it if the Lord would send more families with children to the Skykomish area.
