We ask for your prayers over the next two days as we help lead a training conference we’ve been planning and organizing for several months. You probably remember us talking here about CHE – Community Health Evangelism (you can read more about CHE here). CHE is a method of working in communities to bring about spiritual, physical and social health as a way of sharing the Good News of Jesus Christ. We believe this approach could make a real difference here in Slovakia, and we’re excited that people are interested in learning more!
This is the same training we had in February, and it was an encouraging and eye-opening experience for us. We’re praying it will be the same kind of experience for our 10 participants from different places here in Eastern Slovakia.
We’ll be starting this afternoon at 3:00pm local time (8/9am for many of you in the U.S.), and finishing on Saturday at lunchtime. This is the first of two training weekends.
We ask for your prayers:
- For safe travel for all the participants, leaders and translators.
- That our minds and spirits would be attuned together to what God wants to do here in Slovakia.
- That this would be a time of refreshment and encouragement for these participants. Many of them lead incredibly busy lives, already working and serving people… pray that they would be able to disconnect from those busy lives for a while, so that we can see together what God might be showing us.
- For the leaders and translators – that the Spirit would give us the right words to say at the right time.
- For finances for the training session, as many of the participants need scholarships to be able to attend. If you’re interested in helping with this, you can make a gift to our Roma Education Project through CBF (gifts are tax-deductible). Click here to go to the CBF giving page.
We’re especially thankful today for your partnership in the work God is doing here – we would not be here if it were not for your continual encouragement, prayers and support. Thank you for being a part – we look forward to sharing a good report with you in a few days!
