Praise and Prayer Update (January 31, 2020)

pastoral leadI (Rick) am posting this just before heading off to teach an all-day course on pastoral leadership at Heritage Seminary.  As I’ve looked over the roster of the eleven students signed up for the class, I’m excited.  God is entrusting us with some godly, young leaders to train for ministry.  What a privilege to invest in their lives.  Please pray that God will enable and empower me to teach well.

Later today, Linda will be headed to the Hespeler Library to lead a team of ESL teachers.  Last week, we had almost 20 people (workers and ESL students) crowded into a room at the library.  Lots of energy and engagement.  Lots of opportunities to bring God’s love to these friends from around the world.  Please pray for lasting impact on lives.

On Sunday, I am scheduled to preach at Maple Avenue Baptist Church in Georgetown.  Please pray for spiritual and physical strength to minister God’s Word.

missions confNext week at Heritage, we have our annual Missions Conference.  This is one of the high-points of our entire year.  This year’s theme focuses on Unreached People Groups and their need to hear the life-giving gospel of Christ.  Please pray that God works powerfully in the lives of our students, giving all of us a greater heart for those who need to hear the gospel. 

Thank you for helping through your prayers!
