Pray for a new church partnership within our Local community tonight and tomorrow morning!
Please pray for me tonight as I go to a men’s retreat/conference at a local church in our community and form new friendships and partner with the men’s ministry to launch men’s recovery groups in the coming weeks. As you know, We are Bringing hope and healing through Christ to Men and their families to find FREEDOM from addiction and to THRIVE in LIFE.
Just a month ago I received a phone call from a friend who I know at the church retreat asking if I could help him launch some groups for men to begin to experience hope and healing in a safe place with other men who share the same struggles.
Of course I was excited about this!!!
Please pray that men respond positively tomorrow using some individual response cards and that we are able to launch several “Conquer Groups” (the first stage of the same recovery process I went through) using “The Conquer Series” DVDs.
Thank you for praying for us in this War for the hearts of Men and their families,
We are EXCITED to say we are all
Going North again for a Visit!
We wish we could visit all of you!! you know, have a meal, hangout, and just enjoy catching up. But time is limited, and we are bringing all the kids so we will have all of their “crazy” too!
So maybe missed our little get together last time we were in town over the summer, but we are gonna do it again!!
We will be intentionally playing at playground sometime during the week of 10/16 to 10/23 and will keep you posted as to the details, to be announced!
In the meantime we are reaching out as well to see
Does anyone have a reliable vehicle we could borrow during our visit?
Yes, I wrote that part big so as to make sure you saw it! 🙂
But seriously, let us know if you have access to a vehicle that you wouldn’t mind us driving while we visit. We will be traveling only inside the Capital Region this visit.
In His Grace and in His Hands always,
John, (For Ellen, Maddie Mae, Evie and Noah)
We hope you had an amazing Easter, celebrating the new life we have because of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ! It was the first time I can remember being home with a sick family on Easter Sunday! It was a sad day to miss out on celebrating and worshiping with friends at church but our Easter Sunday was also new and refreshing in its own way. Like so many things in life, there were mixed emotions. We know the way the Lord has for us to walk in this life is fraught with difficulties but along the way there is Joy to be found with Christ and his Body as we walk together.
coaching hours to apply for certification. Once this training is completed, she will be better equipped to help people thrive in Christ in our ministry.
- for John as he “digests” the training from Pure Desire Ministries he attended last weekend in the Washington DC area. (This training conference focuses on equipping leaders to bring hope and healing to men, women, and their families in the areas of compulsive porn use and other related addictions)
- for our family to thrive in this very full season of life transitions and change
- for Ellen as she begins her transition as a coach serving missionaries at Cru Headquarters on her new team, while still attending classes
- for financial (and logisitical) provision for these trainings
- for health for our family, we have noticed that sicknesses tend to come at not-so-ideal times! 😦
