Aug 9, 2011 Prayer Updates

Revelation 21:5 - The One sitting on the throne said, "Look, I am making everything new!"

This month I want to celebrate what God has been doing in our ministry by pointing out a few of the Timothys He has brought our way already in the first three years of ministry. Connecting those who have the attitude Timothy had as Paul wrote about him in Philippians 2:20-21 is why we are doing what we are doing. This is the foundation of our ministry, so these people and many others we have connected with along the way represent our approach toward reaching the world with the love and hope of Jesus Christ.

So please praise God with us for what He has already done through these lives and pray for their ministries. Also please pray for others to catch the vision of connecting a Timothy culture in the Church. I want to highlight one of these Timothy's each month and I will start with one of my good friends.

Larry Bradley

As I write this Larry is in North Carolina performing a song that he wrote after his first mission trip experience. It is a powerful song written in response to a powerful experience he had on his first trip to Uganda to serve Juna Amagara Ministries. If I had to pick one person who has totally shown a Timothy attitude as he serves missionaries around the world it would be Larry. He has often inspired me to keep going because I dream of more people investing themselves completely in serving missionaries the way he has. The song he wrote is called "In the Presence of Greatness," and it communicates his realization that as he was serving the orhpans in Uganda he was in fact the Least if These because in the orphans he saw Jesus. It is a great song backed by a powerful experience and that is why I believe he was picked as a finalist in the national song writing competition that he is attending in North Carolina. He is also booked for his fourth mission trip in September. He will be going to India with a team of four to serve a ministry training front line pastors and church planters - one of the projects he will work on there is helping to produce a video for the ministry.

Here are the names and a quick summary of some of the other Timothys we will be highlighting and praying for in the upcoming months:

Amy Back

Serving street kids in Nairobi Kenya by partnering with national missionaries there.

Ben Barton

Long term commitment to a strong relationship with Lowell and Sheri Glick serving in Mexico and numerous trips to visit them and encourage them.

David Sheets

A young man who gave his talents in film and video to serve GROW International in the Philippines and now is trying figure out how he can do that more often and for more missionaries.

Sherry Adams

While trying to figure out what God wanted her to do next with her life she discovered a huge minsitry field in Helping Hands Re-Sale where she is able to help others both in her community and around the world.

Thanks for praising and praying for these - if you are supporting our ministry financially you are investing in these and others who we help follow through on their call to serve missions. We could not do this without your prayer and support.
