As we finish the week and head into the weekend, I’m quite aware of God’s goodness and grace to Heritage. We’re seeing signs of spiritual growth in the lives of students. More churches are becoming Partner Churches and increasing their support for the school. We’re seeing a lot of activity in our admissions department for next year’s incoming class. For all these evidences of God’s hand on Heritage, I want to give thanks. And I want to thank you for helping through your prayers (2 Corinthians 1:11).
Thank you for praying for Linda as she spoke at an women’s outreach event on Saturday and for me as I spoke at a missions conference on Sunday. We feel the need for a team of prayer supporters as we serve at Heritage and minister in the wider community.
Here are several prayer requests for this coming weekend and week:
This Sunday, I am scheduled to preach at Grandview Baptist Church in Kitchener. Our travel worship team will be going with me to lead the congregation in singing. Please pray as I speak on the hope of resurrection (1 Peter 1:3-9). This is very a poignant and personal topic for the congregation as their lead pastor, Steve Baxter, died suddenly last fall.
On Tuesday (April 4), I will be at a regional conference for Fellowship Baptist churches to give an update on the school. Pray that we will continue to see more churches choose to become Partner Churches with the school.
On Thursday (April 6) our first year students are hosting an open house for people they’ve met while serving in the community. Pray that those invited will choose to visit the school. It’s our desire to share the good news of Christ with them. Ask the Lord to fill our students with boldness and love.
God is answering! Let’s keep praying.
