Please keep these prayer requests in mind as you come before God in prayer today:
Update: Please pray for Fred Beach as he left on a mission trip to Guatelmala today. He will be leading a team of 12 people and will be gone Aug. 3-12. Please pray for safe travels and for God to work through the team as they build relationships and work with the children and families in Guatemala. If you are interested in following their travels you may “like” the Reachout Ministries page on facebook for updates throughout the week.
Update: Please pray for Ruth Beach as she is suffering from a kidney stone. After consulting the doctor it was decided that she would stay home from the mission trip to Guatelmala. Please pray for her pain to subside and for her condition to remain stable until Fred returns.
We praise the Lord for the successful surgery that Brenda Molendyk endured on Monday to remove a growth on her skull. We thank the Lord that the tests came back negative – the growth was benign! Please pray for Brenda to make a full recovery from this surgery.
We praise the Lord for the birthday that Shirley De Vries will celebrate today and the birthday that Gord Vork will celebrate on Friday. Pray for the joy of the Lord to be upon Shirley and Gord as they celebrate their birthdays this week.
We praise the Lord for another great year of Vacation Bible School. We praise the Lord for the many volunteers and many children who participated in VBS this year. Pray for God to continue to grow the seeds of faith that were planted in the hearts of the children this week so that they will come to know the saving love of Jesus.
Please pray for Kim Zeinstra as she will be departing on August 11 for a one-year service of missions and outreach with CTI Music Ministries. Pray for God to be with Kim and provide for her needs as she travels and as she uses her gifts to tell other about Christ. Pray for God to bless the work of CTI and the teams Kim will be working with so that many will come know of God’s grace in Christ.
Please pray for our members who will be attending the Church Campout this week at Tri-Ponds. Pray for God to grant safety to all the campers and for the campout to be a time of good Christian fellowship.
Please pray for our 4th-7th graders who will be attending South Olive’s Bible Camp that will begin on Saturday (August 6-13). Pray for our students to grow in their knowledge and love for Christ through their time at camp this year. Please keep in prayer the Bible Camp students from our church:
