Praises and Pleas

Youth for Christ Roxboro July 25, 2007

But as for you, be strong and do not give up, for your work will be
rewarded…For the eyes of the Lord range throughout the earth to strengthen
those whose hearts are fully committed to Him.
2 Chron 15.7,16.9

Praises: for the young foster gal who sticks to Summer Intern Amy like glue
and soaks up all the love she can get; for the many city boys who have
played paintball in the country, experiencing uneven ground for the first
time; for the volunteers who are chinking the Outdoor Mission Camp lodge;
for questions like, “So how do we know the Bible is true?” and the Spirit
working in teen brains and hearts; for Your strength and Your perseverance
as we continue this work, Lord.

Pleas: hearts that are fully committed to You—among our board, staff,
volunteers, supporters and youth; more monetary support as our income has
fallen this summer; our work rewarded with salvations among our summer
campers and other teens, DW; Outdoor Mission Camp to be com-pleted this
year; plans/ideas for the fall to be exactly in line with what You want,
Lord; copies of Light Steps to disperse like bread cast on the water
(usually lots of fish eat it quickly, so we pray people will feed on it
likewise)
