Prayer Requests for Tuesday

Friends, we had an amazing first day of ministry. The stories just keep coming. I'm encouraging students to write them as soon as possible, but there's not a whole lot of time for writing. But rest assured, more stories are on the way.

As for today, please pray for the following:
- Yesterday, we had about twenty kids at our VBS program. Please pray that God would grant us momentum to carry this program throughout the week. Pray that we might reach kids who have yet to make a decision for Jesus.

- Today, a large portion of our group is going to prepare a meal and deliver it to a large "tent city" where many dozens of homeless people have put up tents under an overpass. Please pray for God to communicate His love to these men, women, and children through our team.

- Today at 4:00pm our time (2:00pm back home), we are combining forces with the mission teams from the other two churches for a basketball outreach, at the abandoned school we worked at last year. There are many neighborhood teenagers, and we are praying that they may be reached for Christ. Please cover this outreach in prayer this afternoon.

Again, everyone is well. We are amazed at God's faithfulness to use us, if only we make ourselves available. Thank you again for your prayers and support.

Serving Him,
Pastor Gary Weston

Keep up the good work. You are making a difference in the life of those in New Orleans as well as the life of the young people of Fair Oaks.

Greetings from Concord and Clayton. Mocha Neva, Yvonne,Gloria, Celeste and Melissa are all here reading your blog and loving it! We can't wait to hear all about your outreach to the tent city under the overpass. Yvonne is happy that you got to go back to the same abandoned school you went to last year. Gloria is happy that God has provided a lot of kids already for your vbs program. We are all so excited that Brock got to see Kenny and AJ and the guys got to play basketball with the group. We are praying that great relationships will lead to opportunities share Jesus' love. Special hugs to Russ, AJ Brock and all of the adult leaders. We love you all!! Your friends from California.
