Youth for Christ Roxboro

Mar 21, 2007

....the rising sun will come to us from heaven to shine on those living in darkness and in the shadow of death, to guide our feet into the path of peace. Luke 1.79

Praises: Prayed for opportunities to send word out about next week's public reception at the Warehouse and Board Member Ben Wilson got to announce it before 400 community leaders last night at the Horner Financial banquet before he gave the invocation. Three Hearts Learning Center moves in next week and takes $500 off of our rent payment each month! Daily hard labor by volunteers putting baseboards in bathrooms, cleaning out the proposed chapel, typing files, getting ready for this year's annual Friend's Night on March 27. A precious, older, toothless man from the group homes who came one evening to take out trash, mop bathrooms and talk to anyone who would listen about how he used to steal cars to support his cocaine habit, but the Lord freed him from that and now he wants to do anything he can to pay back this community for all the wrong he did.

Pleas: Thank You so much, Father, for being good all the way through, for shining Your light into dark, drug-addicted hearts, for pursuing children born into sin-ravaged homes that cannot find You on their own. Thank You for Your promise to guide our feet into Your path of peace. Jesus, You are our peace. You have fixed it so that there is nothing between us and the Father. Help us, Lord, to spread that news, to tell others (like DW) to leave the shadow of death and live in Your light. Please guide the feet of teens, God, to turn into Campus Life meetings and the Warehouse; and guide the feet of 5 staff, 4 summer interns, 200+ volunteers, 15 board members, 7 people to pray with You, and 400 attendees on March 27, to do Your will for Your glory.
