Prayer Needs

Praca do Papa (Pope Square) Belo Horizonte, Brazil

After a great vacation in the States in July, we came back to Brazil refreshed and ready for God to work in a big way in the lives of college students. Because of Demps's job responsibilities, much of his day to day interaction is with his staff -- training and leading them to lead others. We've had a lot of fluidity in our ministry in the past year, finding the best fit for people, making adjustments as individuals needed time for emotional and spiritual growth, as well as the health problems Demps had late last year. Suffice it to say, it has not been an easy year. God IS working in a big way here in Brazil in our lives as well as in the lives of college students. But we need His grace more than ever.

Here are some things you can pray for all of our staff:

*wisdom and grace in dealing with staff issues (spiritual, emotional, relational)
*wisdom and clarity for young staff on theological issues
*honoring God with time; a biblical view of work and rest
*capacity for development of the church our ministry is planting

Also, pray for Demps and celebrate with us as he turns 40 on September 3rd!

We love you all,
