The Visitors

We had our first youth meeting last night and it went very well.  We had 9 young'uns and 5 grow'd up folk.  Thanks for your prayers.

Sheri and Deva came to visit last weekend and were a great encouragement to us.  Here is a word of testimony from Sister Sheri:
   
"Most of you know that Deva and I went to
Idaho for Labor Day weekend.  It was a     wonderful time of rest and fun
with Jana and Bennett.  It was so very good to see     them again, and very
hard to leave on Monday morning.  While I was there Jana wanted to me
think of ways we could pray for them as I observed there lives. So here they are....
 
Pray
for their relationship with God to overshadow the everyday ministry
duties in the office.  It is so easy to get caught up in the business
of ministry and paperwork and such, and to neglect your personal walk. 
Please pray they will continually seek God before office work.
 
Pray
for friends and community.  It is hard getting settled into a new
place, especially after leaving somewhere special like Deer Creek. 
Pray that they will develop a family-type community in Idaho to lean on
for support, share life with, and worship with.
 
The life groups at North Star are
starting this Sunday.  They have never had them before, and are
starting with five (I think).  Jana and Bennett will be leading a life
group in their home with people around their age.  Pray that God will
unite them in vision and ministry. 
 
The
youth group started up last night (as many of you know).  Please pray
for Jana and Bennett as they take over these responsibilities.  Pray
for the youth to be excited to spread the gospel to their generation. 
 
They
took me to the campus of North Idaho College while I was there.  Right
now there are no organized ministries on this campus.  Pray for someone
to feel led to start some kind of ministry outreach or Bible study at
this campus.  This is a huge age group not being reached right now, and
an important one as these students are on the verge of adulthood. 
 
Pray for the future
possibility of starting a Bible study and eventually a church in
Wallace, Idaho.  (About 45 minutes from CDA)  Pray that they will meet
someone open to hosting the bible study in their home or business, pray
for opportunities of outreach, and pray for the people of Wallace to be
drawn to God. 
 
I will say that I was very
impressed with Jana and Bennett's church!  They have great leadership,
and God is moving in Coeur D'Alene!  Please pray for their continued
work in the communities.  And you can see pics of our trip on my blog or the Idaho blog.  It was great fun!!!!"

  1. Enjoyed your friends blog and will print out her prayer list and give it to my SS class.

    It is amazing what you have learned on your own. Daddy and I went camping once but we used Albert Horn's camper(big enough for his whole family--3 boys and 1 girl)We went to Davis lake and it rained the whole time. Came home and never went again. Seems like we missed a lot. Love you. Mom
