Prayer Update February 10, 2017

This has been a big week at Heritage. From Monday through Wednesday we had our annual Missions Conference on campus. Once again, it was an inspiring time. I so appreciated the missionaries (from over 20 agencies) who spent their days (and nights!) conversing with students, challenging them to consider how they can take Christ’s love to a needy world.

The Missions dinner on Wednesday evening featured Brazilian cuisine—in honour of the students who will be part of the SERVE Experience to Brazil this summer.

After dinner, we had our famous “Cake Auction” where we bid on colourful, creative cakes made by students and staff. Linda made a chocolate, cherry and coffee trifle that went for over $800. A number of people teamed up to buy the final cake for over $1600.

Why pay such outrageous amounts? All the money raised goes to help Heritage students serving on overseas missions trips this summer. The entire Missions Conference was a sweet time and the auction was the “icing on the cake”!

Please join with us in praising God for impacting many hearts during the Missions Conference.

Also, pray for long-term impact in our lives from the conference. Ask the Lord to continue to raise up labourers for His harvest field from Heritage.
