Prayer Needs

Updated April 2017

Dear Prayer Partner,

In the last prayer newsletter, I asked that you pray for volunteer laborers for our new welcome center/office construction project.  God has answered in a marvelous way!  God has sent David Heath and Wayne Jennings to hang all of the sheet rock.  This is a huge job for just two people, but they are doing it with marvelous attitudes.  As I write this letter, they are hard at work.  Our own relief houseparent and construction supervisor, Chris Martin, has had to work very hard installing duct work and finishing the electrical work to stay ahead of David and Wayne.  Paul Linder, who is currently in our transitional living program, has also been a big help. And, at a huge discount to us, Keith Bellinger has been dry-walling day in and day out.  We will continue to need volunteers through the summer, as we finish the welcome center/office and remodel the current office area into an apartment. Please keep volunteers on your prayer list and praise God for sending these hard workers.

Prayer Needs

  1. Please pray for our Executive Director Search Committee.  I have set a target date of May 1, 2018 for my retirement.  The actual date could be months before or after the May 1st target date, depending upon when a new Executive Director is found and the prior commitments of that person or persons.  The search committee will have its first meeting on April 8 and expects to meet at least monthly thereafter.
  2. Please pray for new children who will respond to the love and structure provided by the houseparents and the message of Jesus Christ.  With the end of the school year, we have quite a few kids who will be returning home.  Please keep the kids who are returning home in your prayers and pray that God will bring the right new kids to our program.
  3. Please pray for the spiritual and emotional growth of our kids during the summer months.  With kids having more contact with our staff and kids attending church camp and Christ-in-Youth conferences, summer is an opportunity of rapid growth for kids.
  4. As mentioned above, please pray for volunteers to complete the welcome center/office building and to renovate the area presently serving as our office area into an apartment.

I want to again say how much I appreciate you as a prayer partner.  Never underestimate the importance of bringing the Home’s needs to the all-powerful Lord.  “For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.” (Ephesians 6:12)

In Christian Love,
