Dear fellow workers in God’s Kingdom, 12/19/12
You have an opportunity to redeem the 40 days before Palm Sunday by having the people in your congregation, ministry, or city be on the same page in prayer. Seek God for the City 2013 is a great resource to use in order to pray in unity for the city in which you live. The Church in New London has been utilizing this tool for over 10 years and have really been blessed by using it. We look forward to adventuring together in prayer every year.
I would be glad to order copies of the book for us all so we can get them at the most discounted price. I have one congregation so far with an order of 25. How many should I order for you? The booklets cost $3.00 each. If we order over 1,000 the books will cost us less than $1.50 each. There is an app for this prayer adventure as well that can be ordered. The bottom line is I would like to encourage you to utilize this great tool so your city can be prayed for in a powerful way and together we can make it more reasonable to utilize. Of course you can always order on your own.
Send me your requests for copies. I will be placing the order the 15th of January and will distribute the booklets you ordered at our February ministerial meeting so you can get it into the hands of those who want to participate. We can settle up with the cost after the order is made.
Please go to www.waymakers.org for more information about the prayer booklets.
And how about topping the community prayer adventure with a pastor’s prayer summit on the 22nd – 25th of April 2013. You can register at www.prayersummit.net

Dear partner in the faith, 12/13/12
One of the privileges of being a pastor with a long tenure is to see God’s handiwork from a longer vantage point. Over the years I have been blessed to watch the women from Faith Christian Church pray for God’s will, hear Him point to a verse of Scripture and then go on to apply it deeply into their lives. These women have really come to know, believe, and understand God as their Father. Isaiah 43:10 has a rich and full meaning to me because of how these women are living this verse out.
Out of the overflow of God’s blessing to the women of Faith Christian Church has born a desire to celebrate sisterhood in a women’s retreat. The women have asked me to distribute the information about their retreat to you so you in turn can share it with your congregations or ministries who you believe could benefit from it. One of our own FCEMF attendees, Brenda Spina (Center for Family Healing), will be the main speaker and the beautiful facilities and grounds of Spencer Lake Conference Center in Waupaca will host the retreat. Please see to it the digital brochure, flyer, and registration forms get into the hands of women in your congregations or ministries.
You can call me with any questions you have.
