I am participating in a leadership course through our chamber of commerce. I will be able to interact with about 30 business leaders in our community over eight weeks. Please pray I can make good relationships, show love to them and have gospel opportunities. Also, I pray that future projects will emerge as opportunities for our church to serve the community.

On Wednesday, April 10, my wife is having a biopsy to see if breast cancer has reoccurred. Please pray there will be no recurrence.

We are praying soldiers will sign up for our spiritual resiliency retreat, which is happening April 16–18. This is a great opportunity for our soldiers to grow in God, but so far we have had very little interest. Pray God moves in the hearts and minds of our soldiers so they will want to participate.

Please pray I have fruitful follow-ups and baptisms with those who have made professions of faith. Pray for my youngest daughter, as she continues to seek the Lord and hears and responds to what He shows her.

From April 12–19, I am leading a trip to work alongside our International Mission Board friends in a former Soviet Union satellite country. I’m taking three teens—two of whom are my daughters—and two other adults. Please pray we make much of Jesus and that our trip leads to eternal destination changes. Additionally, on the heels of returning from our trip, our church plant will launch weekly Sunday morning services. Also, we launch Calvary Las Animas on May 5, at 11 a.m. Please pray for strength and that Jesus will be made non-ignorable in Las Animas and to the ends of the earth. Pray we are able to make many long-term relationships with the folks from our town.

Pray us for wisdom as we counsel several who have expressed desire to be baptized. We have three confirmed for baptisms, and I’m supposed to meet with two other families this weekend, April 6–7, I will determine if they’re truly saved and ready. I’ve counseled five teen guys to this point. Three are ready, two have decided they aren’t not quite ready yet. Of the two families this weekend, there’s a total of seven potential candidates for baptism. We’re planning to baptize where we meet for worship at the high school. We will baptize in a trough in the parking lot Sunday, April 14. Pray new converts will give their whole hearts to Jesus.

I Prayed

Pray we will be a healthy and biblical church. Pray our spring family retreat April 5–7 will be successful. Pray we continue being faithful in Bible study and weekly campus evangelism. Pray we focus only on Jesus and faithfully make disciples. Pray the Lord will build up 12 Bible teachers.

Please pray for our physical, emotional and spiritual health. Pray God will encourage our leaders to embrace the ministry. Also, some new immigrant families have recently joined the church and are in need of accommodations. Pray God will provide.

We have recently started services in a yard, allowing a Fresno Bulldog gang inmate to attend one at a time. Pray that many Bulldogs will be saved and that the gang members will change.

Please pray our church will effectively reach out to our community and have many opportunities. Pray also our leadership development programs will be effective.
