What do you hope for in 2016?
Jesus said you don’t have because you don’t ask. His brother and believer in the faith, James said that you don’t have because you ask for the wrong reasons. This is one very good reason to read scripture and pray daily. We learn the mind of Christ and we have a better idea how to pray
My greatest hope for 2016 is to see spiritual growth in Tom, Tim, Jonathan, Jeremie, Ronnie, Jim, and Steven. God has blessed all these men with opportunities to mature in their faith.
These men face struggles and challenges which most of us have never known. But they are men whom I invested varying amounts of time over the last several years. My hope is for these men to grow in their desire for God’s Word and looking to Him in daily decisions and choices.
Especially pray for Ronnie who will mostly likely need to move to a new location in the next month or two. Pray that he sees the need to obtain employment. Pray that he will adjust to his new living arrangements.
And pray for Tom who is facing health issues. Pray that his employer will work with Tom as he recovers from surgery. Pray that Tom will not get discouraged.
We are exploring ways to serve a group of young women who are rebuilding their lives coming out of the sex trafficking industry. Yes, here in the heart of the USA.
According to Franklin Graham, Nashville has the largest adult bookstore in the world and has the most “mega churches” in America.
A safe house has been established here in Spring Hill for young women escaping from this cruel and abusive industry. We may be teaching a Faith and Finances curriculum February 4th Pray for this opportunity we are partnering with Unchained Movement.
Pray as we launch another Faith and Finance class. This will be just 2 weeks after serving the community with the Medical Dental Unit. We hope some of these folks will take advantage of this opportunity.
Everything we do is designed to give us the privilege to sharing the Gospel.
The Joy of Family
What expectations do you have for you and your family? What spiritual goals can you work on this year? Remember He (Jesus) is able to do above and beyond all that we ask or think….to Him be the glory… (Eph. 3:20-21)
I will be praying for you and your family this year. Please keep us in your prayers. And thank you for your support.
