Praise and Prayer Update (January 24, 2020)

As I write this morning, my heart brims with praise for the many evidences of God’s grace to Heritage in recent days.

evangelsimYesterday, our college students led the Local Outreach Chapel.  They reported on five outreach initiatives they’ve been actively involved in this year:  door-to-door evangelism, pro-life outreach, ESL classes for the community, Move In and Night Light (a drop-in centre for folks living on the streets).  It was moving to hear how God had been growing in them a passion to spread the gospel to those around the school.  God is at work!

I’m also rejoicing in the two-day Heritage Board meeting we had this week.  We are blessed to have a committed, engaged board—men and women who deeply care for the school and its mission.  We discussed important matters related to our upcoming capital campaign.  I’m grateful for their wise guidance and strong support.

Here are several matters for prayer that I would ask you to remember:

  1. great womenLinda is involved in teaching a course on Great Women of the Faith.  She’s teamed up with Dr. Michael Haykin to present the lives of women God has used throughout history.  Pray for Linda and Dr. Haykin as they teach.  Pray that those in the class would be inspired and challenged to trust God to use their lives for His purposes.
  2. Next week I have multiple opportunities to teach and preach God’s Word. I speak in chapel on Tuesday, a preaching class on Thursday, a Pastoral Leadership Class on Friday, and a Maple Avenue Baptist Church on Sunday.  I would welcome your prayers as I prepare and present God’s truth.  Pray for the impact of God’s Word on the lives of all of us who hear it.

Thank you for your support through prayer!
