Join us in praying for –

·        The last couple weeks of club at Aux Sable

·        Heidi Taylor – our chapter’s summer missionary thanking the Lord for her support that is being sent in; praying the Lord prepares her heart for training school; also asking the Lord to help her on May 20 for pre-training here in Shorewood

·        Illinois summer missionary training school which runs from June 9 – 16; for safety, for the working of the Lord in all our lives; for excellence in training

·        More summer 5-Day Club® sites

·        The local committee meeting this week; also, that the Lord would lead us to a couple more members of this local committee

·        More registrations for our chapter’s summer day camp week (June 19 – 23) – so far, we have just three in hand and three promised

·        The chapter staff as we begin planning for the Back-to-School event set for Saturday, August 5 – we will need school supplies

·        The CEF staff, asking the Lord to always use us to kindly, lovingly, and respectfully interact with school officials and one another – all for His glory

·        May’s financial needs – please ask the Lord to provide what we need to meet our monthly budgeted expenses — $9,500 by May 30.  If you sense the Lord leading you to share in this ministry, please go to the chapter website, www.cef3rivers.com  and click the “Donate” tab across the top of the page to safely give.  Yes, thankfully our God continues to remain faithful and He may also be trusted to supply all that we need

·        The national CEF conference happening this week on the east coast – pray that many will be encouraged and know safety in travel

As always, thank you for taking time to pray for the children and this ministry to them.  Prayer is one of the most important things we can do.  Again, thank you.  Blessings – Mike, Hebrews 12:1 – 3
