Praises and Prayer Requests
Well, dear friends, we are coming right up to the beginning of the 2018 Del-Haven Camp season!
The Kitchen and Shower house/restrooms project still need some finishing touches to be totally ready. Please be in earnest prayer with us that these very much needed tasks are completed.
With all the attention having to be given to getting our wiring updated and our Kitchen and Shower house/restrooms finished – we have at the same time a crisis situation where our staff is concerned. Many of our young people have reached the time when they need to seek gainful employment for themselves. This sort of thing happens. Therefore, we need your prayers that the Lord will provide ample replacements of young men and women who have a real desire to serve the Lord with us in proclaiming the gospel to the children that He sends to us. Everything about this ministry is supplied through faithful fervent prayer! Phil.4:6-7 encourages us in that it says: “Be careful for nothing – but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving – let your requests be made known unto God. (7) And the peace of God – which passeth all understanding – shall keep your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus.” What a wonderful promise! Thank you, Lord for giving that unto us!
In all your praying for us, we would be remiss not to seek your prayers for the children themselves. Pray that the Holy Spirit go before us in preparing and paving the way for their hearts to receive the Word of the truth of the gospel.
The apostle Paul, who never went to Colossae, wrote to them – seeking from them in Col.4:2-4 – that they “Continue in prayer, and watch in the same with thanksgiving; (3) withal [or, lit., at the same time] praying also for us that God would open unto us a door of utterance to speak the mystery of Christ…as I [or, we] ought to speak.” This is what it’s all about! May God our Savior grant us this earnest petition. The eternal salvation of souls is — wholly, wholly, wholly of the Lord!
