We can make our plans, but the Lord determines our steps. Pr 16:9 (NLT)
The new year is underway and so is our planning. Please pray for the Lord’s direction as we make, prepare and finalize plans for 2023.
Pray - We are leading a team in July to the beautiful county of Donegal. There are two new e3 staff members on this team who we are training. This Plano-based church has begun a new partnership with our national partner in Donegal and one of their desires is to start a Celebrate Recovery program. CR is a wonderful ministry and one we believe would be very impactful for Ireland. Please pray for open doors and direction for this.
Pray - For wisdom as we are in the beginning stages of a possible partnership with I Am Second to reach Ireland.
Pray - For wisdom and open doors for another partnership that is in the works. This would be with some Romanian churches in Ireland and our e3 leaders who oversee the Romania strategy, as well as our Romanian national leaders, are helping us get connected.
Pray - For all the details in planning a leadership training in late autumn for our Irish partners.
GO SHORT at CYPRESS BIBLE CHURCH
We have exciting things going on in the Go Short ministry of our church, which I co-lead with e3 staffer, Stacie.
Pray - For our team going to South Africa in March. We have eighteen people going to do evangelism and various training workshops for pastors, preschool teachers, and those who work with special needs children. A couple teenagers have joined the team and they will have the opportunity to go into a high school and share with the students. God is really moving and doing wonderful things in Motherwell; I’m looking forward to returning to South Africa!
Pray - For wisdom as we plan a vision trip to Japan to co-labor with long-term missionaries. Also, pray for William who is coming on staff with e3 to possibly lead this strategy.
