November 10, 2019: Pray for the team as they tackle a mountain of different ministries that keep the Camp functioning. Some on the team are on furlough in the States while others prepare to retire. This leaves a lot of work across a small group of people. Pray God grants the team unity and joy in serving so that His light shines through us to all those we have contact with; from the French building inspectors, to the bakers, to the guy who sprays the weeds.
November 10, 2019: Pray that God grants me wisdom as I rebuild the system for registrations, payments, and accounting with a single system that meets all the French and the US requirements. Pray that God guides me to create a system that is efficient and that serves the Camp for the decades to come.
November 10, 2019: The spiritual warfare raging around us here at the Camp is serious. Pray that God keeps me and the fellow team members focused on God and encouraged, with eyes to see God’s hand at work around us.
November 10, 2019: Please continue to pray that God will provide a permanent car soon. I have had a sales agreement on a 2006 Renault for the last week. The dealer finally called and said it is ready for me to pick up! Thank you, Lord for breaking through this transportation problem! Pray everything goes smoothly for me to pick it up Tuesday.
November 10, 2019: Thank the Lord that he has brought me back to leading worship both at the Camp and at Church. It is challenging with short periods to learn all new songs, with new chord structures (think Sound of Music with the “Do, Re, Mi” song), AND in French. I have a steep learning curve and I feel every week how inadequate my skills are. Pray for courage to overcome the challenges and for God to grant me the ability to play in a way that glorifies Him.
November 10, 2019: Still a major prayer request! Thanks God! I survived month 2 with no pay. Here’s a really huge answer to our prayers! And a BIG leap of faith! I need to be at $1655 for monthly expense by the end of November and be at the full $4655 for monthly expenses by The end of January. I agreed to work without any monthly pay until I get the monthly amount to 100%. I also need to still raise roughly $8,000 in one time expenses for a car and training. Pray God gives me wisdom and guidance on how to raise these required funds.
November 10, 2019: Praise be to God who somehow, after so many years of unuse, brought all of those French Language skills. Pray God continues to provide lots of opportunity to put it to use and He grants me the courage to keep on talking! Talking on the phone still remains a huge challenge to me. Pray that God gives me confidence.
