As we move into December, our fall semester is moving to its finale. Students are working hard to finish papers and prepare for final exams. Professors are gearing up for all the grading that comes when the students turn in those papers and exams!
Last week I asked you to pray for Linda’s ESL class, our Christmas banquet and upcoming Board meeting. Thank you for praying! God graciously worked through the ESL gathering and gave us a wonderful, Christ-honouring Christmas banquet. Our Board meeting had to be cancelled; several of our Board members experienced a death in their extended families and were unable to attend (see prayer request below).
Would you please join me in praying for these specific requests:
Pray for the members of the Heritage Board. Each of these men and women have a deep love for the ministry of the school. Several are walking through deep waters, having just lost a member of their extended families. Pray for God’s comfort and strength for each one who serves on our Board. (We are looking forward to a Board Strategic Planning Day on January 24th).
I (Rick) have several speaking opportunities in the coming days. On Sunday, I’m scheduled to preach at Bethel Baptist Church in Strathroy. On Tuesday, I have been invited to speak to the pastors and staff at Harvest Bible Chapel in Oakville. Please ask the Lord to enable me to serve these churches through preaching His Word.
Thank you for continuing to support us through your prayers!
