School is starting!!!

Praying for Our Schools

This week and the next few weeks, schools will be starting and getting back into a routine. Let's pray this week for our teachers, administration and students/parents.

Teachers-Pray for wisdom, care for self, resources provided, discernment on how to care for the students they have.
Administration-For wisdom and guidance on decisions that have to be made on a daily basis. For them not to forget that the students are the priority.
Students-That each student will be filled with hope in a brand new year. That they will have clear minds to concentrate and that a hedge of protection will be around each and every student.
Parents-That parents will strive to help their students to have the things they need to be successful in their school day, care for themselves and their ids, provision to make the load lighter and that any things that are troubling them will be resolved.

Philippians 4:19 "And my God will supply all your needs according to His riches in glory in Christ Jesus."

Rejoicing in New Life

Had to stop and take a break to rejoice over some great news in the Montgomery area.

Last night, after 10 years of investment, building relationships, getting to know the culture, we launched the FIRST Mixtec Church in 2 areas of Montgomery. We had 52 told come to the services. Sunday nights 5:30p.m. Food and Fellowship.

This people group has been in the Montgomery area for many years and we just found them about 10 years ago. This church is only the 4th Baptist church in the nation. We are so very excited. They are an indigenous people group from southern Mexico whose primary language is Mixtec, not Spanish.

If you know any Mixtec who either are curious about Jesus OR are Christians and need a safe church to attend and grow in, we would welcome them with open arms. Each site has a unique and simple worship style and the goal is to grow up leaders from within this indigenous group to lead.
Be praying as things get going. Contact me if you know of anyone who could benefit from being a part of this fellowship.

Prayer Points:
1. Pray for the deep spiritual needs of this culture.
2. Pray for indigenous leaders to rise up and become the overseers of this church.
3. Pray for the men of the culture to be interested in this Jesus guy!
4. Pray for those who are already Christians to grow and become leaders and examples of Christ like living.
5. Pray for the Bible teachers now to be wise and sensitive to the spiritual needs of this culture.
