Thank you for praying for us and being part of God’s work in and through Heritage. Last week I asked to you pray for some teaching opportunities that Linda and I had scheduled: I preached in Mississauga on Sunday; Linda presented the gospel to a group of women in Orangeville on Tuesday; we teamed up to teach our first-year students at Heritage on Thursday (on the important topic of men and women in marriage and ministry). We sensed the Lord’s grace and strength as we taught His Word. Praise Him.
This week I am asking you to pray for Heritage as we respond to the coronavirus pandemic. As you know, this virus is impacting our world in a major way. At Heritage, we are seeking to protect the health of our students, faculty, and staff. To this point, we are grateful to God that we’ve had no infections on campus. We want to respond without panic but with prudence. We want to trust the Lord and taking wise action. Our desire is to finish the school year well. (Here’s a link to the actions we are taking in response to the virus).
Would you pray that the Lord would enable our leadership team to be “full of the Spirit” and “full of wisdom” as we make decisions (Acts 6:3)? On the national and global scale, pray that Christians would be known for our trust in God and our love for others. Pray that we would speak of the hope we have in Christ to hearts that are filled with fear.
