Please Pray - Sports Outreach

Dear praying friends and family,

Thanks for your prayers for us last month. The visiting group did a great job with the work project in the church building and with an outreach to university students. Thanks also for praying for the Movie Club that a few guys started to meet their neighbors and begin a friendship with them. One night we had 15 street teens show up to watch a movie with us! Please continue to pray for them.

In a couple of weeks, we’ll be having a Sports Camp” in a low-income neighborhood for kids ages 5 to 10. Last year was the first year that we organized this outreach in the neighborhood, and despite rainy weather, it was a great success. We met new families and the surrounding area became familiar with the church and our small group that meets there.

Please pray for the Sports Camp. Pray it would provide a great way to meet new people and introduce them to the church. Pray for the volunteers from the Jubilee church, and pray for a group from Texas that will be helping organize the activities. Pray too for the kids (we’re anticipating around 75!) that the week would be a lot of fun and that they would begin to learn who Jesus is through our time with them.

Also, please pray for July 17th, Baptism Sunday at the church. We’re excited that several people will be baptized, including a woman that Lindsay has been studying with for a few weeks. Praise God for new brothers and sisters!

As always, thank you for your prayers for us and our ministry. May God bless you as He blesses us through your prayers!

Un abrazo fuerte, Luke
