Here’s how you can pray for North Oshawa this week:
- I’m grateful for an incredibly meaningful prayer walk with some new friends. I learned so much about my own neighbourhood, and I really feel like the five of us who prayed together got a bit more of a sense of God’s heart for north Oshawa. Thank God for this gift!
- This week, I began more intentional fundraising work for this new ministry. As I mentioned last week, this is uncomfortable work for me, but I know it’s important. Someone once advised me to think of fundraising as offering others an opportunity to get involved in ministry - and that’s a thought I love. So, continue to pray for this new ministry to receive our “daily bread” so that God’s work in Oshawa would be made possible!
- Speaking of prayer, gratitude, and support for this new community of faith - I’m so, so grateful for the amount of prayer support I have. I know many in my mother church, Zion Christian Reformed Church, are praying for me and for north Oshawa faithfully - and have been much longer than I’ve been a part of this initiative. I know all of you are praying along with me each week. I even had a woman ask to meet me to pray together earlier this week, since she couldn’t be part of the prayer walk on Saturday. This means the world to me - and is such an important and needed aspect of my work as a church planter. So, thank you, each of you reading this, for your faithful prayer and support - I thank God for each of you!
