The Apostle Paul wrote his prayer request to his prayer partners:
"Finally, our friends, please pray for us. This will help the message about the Lord to spread quickly, and others will respect it, just as you do. Pray that we may be kept safe from worthless and evil people. After all, not everyone has faith."
If the Apostle Paul felt like he needed his friends to pray for him, how much more do we! At just two weeks till D-day (Departure Day), here are some things we specifically need your prayers to help us with.
1. Sabbath, March 12 is our final meeting. We need to finalize our VBS plans at that meeting. Pray that we plan a VBS program that will inspire and strengthen the faith of the children of Las Palmas.
2. We are each preparing a short story of how God has worked in our lives and how we came to have faith in Jesus, which we hope to share with an individual or small group in the Dominican Republic. We will practice telling our stories at our March 12 meeting. Please pray that we will have words that will encourage others.
3. There are still so many details for taking a group abroad that we need to finalize. This is always a stressful time for me! Please pray that I will be calm, patient and balance my life well. I still have classes to teach this quarter while all this is going on. :)
