Today, I just want to ask if you might pray with us for Anthony, a young man of Hindu background who seems to showing the stirrings of awakening to his sin and his need for Jesus. About six months ago, the Lord saved his younger sister, and now we're praying for the family.
Also, we interceded for a ministry started at our church by a number of Filipino members. It's an evangelistic radio outreach that's shown promise and fruit. The radio station is going through some difficulty so airing the show has become sporadic. If it pleases the Lord, we'd love to see the effort continued and many Filipino and non-Filipino people come to saving faith in Jesus.
Finally, we had the privilege of ordaining a man to the eldership yesterday. He's a beautiful brother: humble, holy, kind, full of the Spirit, and eager to teach and preach. He has a real evangelistic passion and has been a great partner in the gospel. Pray that the Lord would continue to bless and keep Bentley as he continues to watch and shepherd the Lord's flock at FBC. If you're interested, the ordination sermon should be up at the church website some time today.
And we had the privilege of praying for Grace Church in Cleveland. Dear members from that church were visiting with us and it was encouraging to hear of God's work there. They also shared briefly about pastor training efforts they're involved in in Haiti, Mali, and Italy. We're praying the Lord raises up able and faithful pastors and teachers in those lands.
