“Do your students always sing that way?” That was the question our guest speaker asked me this week. He was amazed and encouraged by the heart-felt, musical worship during our chapel services. My heart has also been encouraged to sense God’s Spirit working in the hearts of the students who are studying at Heritage this year. Praise Him.
Here are several important requests to pray for in the coming days!
1 Linda and I are teaching a course this weekend entitled, Women Teaching God’s Word. The course is designed to help women grow in their ability to teach God’s Word to other women in their local churches. Seventeen women from across Ontario have signed up for this intensive training. Please pray that each woman will be stretched and strengthened in her ability to faithfully and fruitfully communicate God’s Word.
2 Next Thursday, September 27, Heritage hosts its annual Preaching Lectures.This year, we are happy to welcome Dr. Kent Edwards as our guest presenter. This one-day conference seeks to equip our students and local church leaders to more effectively preach expository sermons. It’s not too late to sign up to attend; visit this link for more information. Please join me in praying for great impact from this year’s Preaching Lectures. (By the way, Linda leads a parallel track for women in ministry during the conference. If you are interested, you can find more information here).
3 As I’ve written before, on October 1st Heritage is able to make a balloon payment on our mortgage. For the past several years, we’ve been praying that God would allow us to completely demolish our debt. It’s been miraculous to see how God has been answering our prayers (Linda and I talk about it in this video). Please pray the remainder of the debt would be eliminated by October 1st!
Thank you for praying, expecting God to do great things.
