“I am the good shepherd, I know my own sheep, and they know me…My sheep listen to my voice; I know them, and they follow me.” ( John 10:14, 27)
Terry Kaufman – Leadership Catalyst
Please pray for effective time in preparation for the days I will spend in Edmonton at the end of the February working with a group of pastors first, and then then specifically with one of our churches for a couple of days. Also please pray as I do my preparation for our upcoming Leadership Training sessions in March and April. In addition, I am working on a resource for our District Superintendents and churches that deserves a lot of research and clear thinking. Prayers are appreciated for that.
Trevor Brawdy – PD Superintendent
We are thankful for the Lord’s provision of pastors in a number of places. Please continue to pray for our churches that are in different stages of searches.
We ask for ongoing prayer for churches that are working through conflict. We are hopeful that in these times of trial, the Lord will refine and redeem and bring new life. And we ask for prayer for Church (re)Plants in Regina and NE Calgary, for clear calls to planters and core groups. Please pray for the believers in EFC churches in the Prairie District, that “God will enable (us) to live a life worthy of the His call. May He give (us) the power to accomplish all the good things (our) faith prompts (us) to do. Then the name of the Lord Jesus will be honored because of the way (we) live” (2 Thess. 1:11-12).
Kelvin Luong – Central District C0-Superintendent
Pray for Pastor Jacky Li (Redeemer) and Pastor Nikolas Delic (Hosanna) as they begin their ministry. Pray for churches that are experiencing financial difficulty. Praise God for providing leaders for the Just Church and the Compassion Community, two church plants to be launched this year. Pray for more pastors to be credentialed and churches to be adopted
Robert & Leslee Oudman – Nicaragua
Pray with us for a church home for Casa de Mi Padre. It has been a challenge for leadership to be under a tight timeline for a move. Pray God would provide a larger place to accommodate the growth that we anticipate over this year 2024. Praise God for the influence we have in the lives of many people in our community. Seniors are being loved, alcoholics ministered to, children taught the values and principles of the Bible! Pray for for good relationships here in Nicaragua and also with supporters in Canada. Pray the Lord will help us to balance our workload.
