Dear prayer partners,
First, if you haven’t already seen it, here is a brief annual report that covers some of what we’re celebrating and thanking God for from 2018: http://www.orchardgroup.org/2019/02/2018-orchard-group-annual-report/
Next, thank you for praying for my travel last month. Join us in praising God for fruitful board meetings and visits to three of our overseas churches: Istanbul, Lagos, and Cape Town. Planting churches in these places (and anywhere!) means that we are engaged in real spiritual conflict. Pray that these churches flourish and reach important milestones as they become established.
Finally, please pray for a number of church planting candidates that we are currently assessing. Ask God for sound judgment, wisdom, and discernment. And ask him to already be raising up partner churches to support these future church plants.
