Prayer & Praise Items

June 12, 2019
First Mennonite Church
Praise God for all the VBS volunteers and staff, including many youth who helped and served so willingly, and for the Word of God which was taught to 120 children.
Praise God for the VBS program last Friday night. Continue praying for the children, especially for those from unchurched homes.
Pray for all our missionaries this week, for encouragement and a steadfast sense of purpose in their ministry. Pray for those who are traveling this summer, for safety and times of refreshment as they meet with family and friends.
Pray for Benjamin Meyer, 4-year-old son of Grant and Jessica Meyer. They will be seeing a neurologist on Monday, June 17, testing to see whether Ben has a mild case of Cerebral Palsy.
Pray for the 27 people on the Dominican mission trip. Pray for Pastor Bill as he leads. Pray that the Lord will help them see that they have been blessed to be a blessing and to serve the Lord with their gifts.
