March 20: Charlie & Patty Scott, Valleyford, WA
This is a growing bedroom community 10 miles south of Spokane Valley in eastern Washington, dotted with beautiful pine-covered hills and wheat fields. We see deer almost daily near the parsonage, eating our bushes or jumping in front of our cars! After many years of planning, we’ve almost completed our new chapel and handicapped-accessible restrooms; we’re also working on a larger kitchen and remodeling the old chapel into office and classroom space. Pray for the funds (and energy!) to be available and that the space is used to bring glory to Christ. Pray for a fruitful Awana ministry, as it draws the most new people to the church. Pray for leaders and direction for our Sunday school, where the majority of members are senior citizens with many health needs and limitations. Depression is a common malady in the area; pray for wisdom and proper treatment for those suffering.
