HOLD THE ROPE for the week of November 30, 2020
LET’S PRAISE AND THANK THE LORD FOR –
· His righteousness which covers His judgement and all He does – Psalm 9
· The boys and girls and their families He has allowed us to reach despite the COVID-19 virus
· Social platforms He has made available to ministry
· The fact nothing surprises our great and mighty God
· The child saved at our chapter’s home Good News Club®
PLEASE JOIN ME IN PRAYING FOR –
· The production of the chapter’s “Missions Impact!” videos – our plan is to have the first series up and ready for viewing by the end of January – it will be the true story of the founder of Wycliffe Bible Translators; ask the Lord to use this to teach saved children about missions and challenge them.
· The restart of our chapter’s virtual Good News Club which will begin on January 12 and 14 – we will be emailing and using social media to inform the kids of this; pray too for our volunteers who join us in teaching
· The chapter finance sub-committee as we craft our 2021 budget
· The possibility of doing a Teaching Children Effectively™ Level 1 class via Zoom – interested people should contact Val
· Al Blackburn’s continued strengthening and total recovery
· The leadership of CEF – ask the Lord to protect this ministry; pray for the international board of trustees asking the Lord to impress upon these men and women His righteous desires for this vital ministry – many issues need to be wisely resolved and cared for
· The chapter’s finances – ask the Lord to meet our every need and help us end the year in the black. If you would like to partner with us financially, please go to our chapter website (www.cef3rivers.org) and click on the “Donate Now” button found on the home page. Thanks much.
· The ongoing ministry of the DYWW booklets – this week we will be mailing copies to individuals who requested them at our “Hope Is Rising” event – pray also for our friend in Florida who is showing it to her pastor for distribution there; we deeply desire that our God use this resource tool to bring many to Himself.
· Val and her ongoing ministry with “Good News TV” – she has been invited to join in the production of the fourth series – what a tremendous opportunity to reach children and families throughout the English-speaking world
· Safety in these days of COVID-19 – may believers lead the way in doing the right things and making good choices
· Through your prayers, you play a vital role in this ministry – thanks so very much for taking time to talk to our Heavenly Father on behalf of the children and families. Mike
