A Note From Pastor Alan
How are you doing today? Really, how are you? Is there something bothering you? Anxious about something? Physical, mental, emotional, or relational?
Prayer is foundational when it comes to overcoming our problems. Did you know that the Bible tells us not to be anxious or worry? Philippians 4:6-7 says, "Don’t worry about anything, but in everything, through prayer and petition with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. And the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and minds in Christ Jesus."
Whenever, I feel any anxiety, I stop and pray asking the Lord to take control of what I am not in control of thus causing me anxiety. Every time I do this, I feel that peace. Often, I have say that prayer repeatedly during the day, but the more I do the less I need to pray it again because of the comfort I get from God.
How can I pray for you? Sometimes, sharing with another believer can help as they pray for you too. I'm hear just let me know and I'll be happy to pray for you!
In His Love!

Pray For Our Church
Most people have two main concerns when it comes to sharing the Gospel: not knowing what to say and facing rejection. IMB missionaries Jay and Kathy Shafto address these concerns as they equip believers in the Congo Basin to share the Gospel confidently and continually.
Working with existing churches in the area and training leaders in local churches is the central focus of Jay and Kathy’s work as the territory where the majority of their work takes place is about one-third the country’s size and home to 400 language groups. Their goal is to train pastors and church leaders to reach hard-to-reach people groups using oral-intensive training methods.
THE COOPERATIVE PROGRAM is the financial fuel for reaching every person for Jesus Christ in every town, every city, every state, and every nation. Your support through the Cooperative Program assists missionaries like the Shaftos in their work to train local believers to disciple others.
PRAY for wisdom for the Shaftos as they continue to train leaders in the Congo Basin for ministry and that the leaders will be bold in sharing the Gospel with their respective people groups.
