May 10: Paul & Lauren McIlroy, Blodgett, OR

McIlroy-Paul-LaurenHalfway between Corvallis and Newport on Highway 20, if you blink you might miss us, as the only sign of a town from the road is our Country Store. The other buildings and most houses are hidden in the firs of the Coastal Range foothills. This makes ministry a challenge as it is difficult to find neighbors. An 80-acre per house law also means that everyone is quite spread out. We’ve tried to combat the isolation by offering community events at the church that reach out to the local families. Men’s Outdoor Group hosts a Sportsmen’s Breakfast and movie night, and we have a monthly Seniors Luncheon and Moments for Moms fellowship group. Weekly Release Time classes give an opportunity to share the gospel with children at the small school next to the church. Pray for these ministries, and for Vacation Bible School – our biggest children’s ministry in the year.. Pray for two children who came to the Lord through Release Time, and for others who haven’t made that decision yet. Pray for wisdom as we encourage these children to grow in Him. Praise for new moms interested in coming to our Moms group; pray for opportunities to share the Gospel and encourage them in their faith. Pray that God would “by His power, fulfill every good purpose and every act prompted by faith so that He is glorified in us.”
