Before I get to the prayer requests, let me start with a praise report. Last week I asked you to pray for 1) increased spring/summer enrollment, 2) increased fall admissions for the college and 3) my (Rick) Sunday speaking ministry at several churches.
The Lord gave some encouraging answers to our prayers! Our spring/summer enrollment looks to be an all-time high, 2) we have just accepted over a dozen new college students for the fall semester and 3) I sensed God’s empowerment and I preached in Hamilton last Sunday. Thank you for praying.
May God’s answers encourage us to keep praying. Here are several requests for this week.
1 Linda and I both teach all day tomorrow (Saturday). She teaches a class for women on writing Bible Study Curriculum. I teach a course on pastoral leadership. Linda will actually join me for an hour as we talk to these men and their wives about merging marriage and ministry. Please pray both classes would be used by the Lord to prepare these men and women for more fruitful ministry.
2 Next Tuesday I am giving an update on Heritage at a conference for pastors and ministry leaders. Pray that God will continue to give us favour with pastors and deepen our partnership with local churches. As I often say, “Heritage exists for the Church and we can’t exist without the Church.”
3 Fall Enrollment. Please continue to ask the Lord to direct more stellar men and women to Heritage for the coming year. I would love to see more young men and women get at least a year of solid Bible training in our college.
