Please Pray - Pastoral Training and Construction

Dear friends and family,

Thank you for your prayers for us over the past month. The Sports Outreach was a wild success, with 86 neighborhood kids participating. You can read more about it and see lots of great photos on our mission website.

Also, thank you for praying for the folks that were recently baptized. Baptism Sunday was encouraging as we laughed together, ate together, and prayed together. Photos are up on the site.

I would like to ask you to please pray for two upcoming events. First, we’re beginning our semi-annual pastoral training next week. Every new Christian in the Jubilee church plant is encouraged to begin a process of discipleship and training. This training helps to solidify their new faith and to create new leaders for cell groups throughout the city. Over the next couple of months, please pray for both our new class who are beginning Discipleship 201” and our 201 graduates who are beginning Leadership 301.”

Lastly, please pray for an upcoming build project that the Jubilee church (with generous help from a sister congregation in Illinois) will be doing for a lower-income family here. We’ll be adding a bedroom to their home for their four boys. Pray for hard work, good volunteerism from Jubilee, and for blessing for the family.

Thank you for your steadfast prayer for us and for the ministry that God is doing here!

Un abrazo fuerte, –Luke
