In a recent newsletter John Middlewood asked for prayer as follows:
Pray for our 7 English Program students living here. It will be final exam time in a little over a month and many decisions have to be made:
First, who will continue for next year?
Second, do we add new 7th grade students?
Third, what happens during summer break?
We have a mountain camp, our own DVBS; at least one special trip for our live-in kids; special tutoring for next year – last year the kids spent their summer living here and going to school 6-8 hours a day for most of the break. Personally, I am praying they decide to do the same thing this year; but it is very hard on them emotionally.
Pray that the young people will make the right choices.
Praise the Lord that we have had an increase of about 6 in attendance – children are starting to bring their friends and they are enjoying it on Saturday and Sunday. Please pray that parents will continue to let their children come when they get more serious about Jesus.
Special prayer for Amporn whose mother refuses to release her from the spirit spell she has put on her, and she is back with us, or God provides another method of release for her so she can have peace and happiness and be a servant of God as she wants to be.
Pray for Miss Bpun, one of our long, long time children, who disappeared about a year ago, and who is back again. She has accepted Christ, but cannot proclaim it at home because of problems that would come up; however, three of her younger sisters are now coming to church also. Bpun is in grade 8, which is an especially difficult time for our young people.
Special prayers for OhAe and Nun as they go out to visit our teens who are lost and wandering around in the dark. Bpun is the first result – Nun has been talking to her for a few weeks already. There are at least 8-10 other teens of ours out there wandering lost.
