Prayer Requests - Sunday the 20th

We had a great day in church - preached the morning message, and we witnessed a cool proposal of marriage between 2 young adults from our MCC youth ministry. Saying our good-byes today.


Asking God for protection from all of the enemy's attacks.
Asking for safety in travel - and from bugs, illnesses, etc.
Asking for victory over the flesh and all other negative influences.


Asking God to bear the "fruit that remains" in hearts and lives:
- in people coming to know the Savior - Jesus, personally;
- others growing as disciples and becoming equipped for service
Asking for restored and reconciled relationships
Also asking God to grow us and make us more like Jesus

We pray that God will fully and wonderfully bless the youth, young adults, and entire congregation this season - even doing more than we could ask or think, while we are gone.

PS: From our previous trip here in June - we encountered a bat in our dining room,
and a boa constrictor outside our hotel in Siem Reap! The snake was devouring a rat.

  1. My prayers are with you continually. So thankful for both of you and your faithful ministry for the Lord. Psalm 121 came to mind as I prayed for you this morning. Verse 8 says "the LORD will watch over your coming and going both now and forevermore." Looking forward to hearing how God will do that for you on this trip. Love, Diane B
