As we enjoy the last weeks of summer, all of us at Heritage are gearing up for the fall. In just a few weeks we will have the joy of welcoming a new and returning students in both the college and the seminary.
While we enjoy the change of pace in the summer, we are excited and energized for the new year at Heritage. God is once again sending us a good group of men and women to help equip for life and ministry. I know many of you who read this blog pray for us and the school. Let me give you some reasons for praise and several prayer requests for the coming week.
Summer Travels. We finished last school year grateful but tired. The Lord provided us with some wonderful opportunities to rest, be refreshed and reconnect with family and friends over the summer months. We spend several weeks in beautiful parts of God’s creation (the White Mountains in New Hampshire and the Poconos in Pennsylvania). We enjoyed sweet time with our kids and grandson–and heard the great news that Michael and Elena are expecting their first child this December.
Summer Ministry: I (Rick) had the joy to speaking in California and Texas. Last week, both of us had the privilege of speaking at Fair Havens Camp. (You can listen to the messages here).
Faculty and Staff Training: Next Wednesday, August 21, our faculty and staff gather for a day of training and fellowship. Would you pray as I (Rick) speak to the Heritage team about having a godly ambition for God’s agenda. We are praying the Lord continues to use Heritage to make a deep and wide impact for His glory.
New Students: We already have a good number of new students coming to Heritage in both the college and seminary. There are a few that are still finishing up the application process. Please pray that the Lord will send us the students who want to love Christ, get to know His Word and to serve His Church and global mission.
Thank you for partnering with us through your prayers.
