August Prayer Update

Prayer Update August 2009

We were buried therefore with him by baptism into death, in order that, just as Christ was raised from the dead by the glory of the Father, we too might walk in the newness of life. - Romans 6:4

Greetings from Lawrenceville, GA! The page is turning. We are closing out a chapter in our lives and opening a new one. We will be moving to Brooklyn on October 1. Please pray for our apartment search during our visit to Brooklyn from August 28 – September 1. Please also pray for our preparations to move to Brooklyn.

New Beginnings: Hannah was baptized on August 16! We were excited to celebrate the love Christ has for her and the union he desires with her. Please praise God with us for Hannah’s baptism. Please pray that Hannah and Jonah would be identified with Christ and his work for them. 

Many people will walk through the doors of Resurrection Presbyterian Church for the first time this fall. Each person, believer and unbeliever, will bring their own particular joys and struggles to be met with the gospel. Please pray for God to use Resurrection Presbyterian Church to serve and love all of the people who come in such a way that Christ may be glorified.
