|Gangs all Here|
Today, August 27th, after the kids got off to school, we met together for breakfast. It was nice to catch up and hear about each others' journeys over the summer. Then we all headed over to our place for a staff meeting. We looked over the upcoming months and their activities. Life is moving at a rapid pace here in GDL. So we covet your prayers over these next months.
September 6th is Ernie & Diane's 'Canadian BBQ', where it is looking like we could have 80-100 people attend. Ernie considers everyone he talks to a friend and out comes an invitation! Please pray for the food prep, the band coming (from Reimer's cells group), our staff and cell people who will be helping, and all the little details that need arranging. Pray that we would be Christ to each person we touch that day.
September 16th is Mexican Independence Day and we hope to organise a gathering with our cell group people. A meal together, prayer for the country (and GDL specifically), plus enjoying the fireworks and festivities.
September 20th we are planning a workshop for our cell groups. Ernie will lead the discussion on the "One Another" verses in scripture. Pray for good attendance and openness.
September 23rd is our next staff meeting to evaluate the month's events and look at our next topic for another workshop.
September 27-October 1 is our anual staff retreat. During our sessions we will watch a video series on evangelism and outreach. Pray for a relaxing time, fellowship and safety as we travel.
October ? John and Connie are planning an outreach dinner with their cell group.
November 10-17 we will be hosting a Prayer Team from Canada. (Any of you may join)
DECEMBER 13th Our children arrive for a three week visit!
So, as you can see, there is a lot to do and plan. We have been praying over these events and ask you to join us. Our desire is to be faithful and to bring others to Christ.
