Prayer and Praise for January 16, 2018

Psalm 78:4 "We will not hide them from their children, shewing to the generation to come the praises of the Lord, and his strength, and his wonderful works that he hath done."  

Psalm 78:1-8 is a portion of Scripture that instructs the people of Israel to teach their children about the wonderful works of God, so they won't be like their fathers - a stubborn and rebellious generation.  Verse 4 tells us what we need to be teaching the children - the Praises of the Lord, His strength, and His wonderful works.  Please join us in teaching this generation of children the wonderful works of the LORD.

 Praise God with us:

1.  The Good News Club Workers Training Class went very well on Saturday.  There was great attendance, wonderful fellowship, and unity of purpose among all who attended.
2.  Congratulations to Good News Club teachers, Brandi and John Lee on the birth of their son, Daniel, on Sunday, January 14.
3.  We are praising God for 10 students planning on taking the Teaching Children Effectively 1 course that begins on Saturday.
4.  God has provided close to 40 people who are involved in teaching or helping in Good News Clubs each week.

Please pray with us:
1.  Pray for the Good News Clubs that are resuming this week.  Pray for the club that will begin at Kendon Elementary in Lansing on Jan. 23 with a new teaching team of LaSandra and Christine.
2.  Pray for the John Sherman Family.  John passed away on Sunday, Jan. 14.  His wife Sherry worked at the CEF of MI State Office for several years, both of them were on the State Board of CEF of Mi for a time.  John and Sherry were helpful when Doug and I made the transition from working with CEF in Detroit to CEF in the Central Michigan Chapter back in 2000.
3.  Pray for Day Out on February 19.  Funds are needed to cover the expenses of food, facilities, and supplies; volunteers are needed to be with the children for the day.  Pray also as permission slips are handed to the Good News Club children over the next few weeks.
4.  Pray for the students and instructors of the TCE 1 course that begins on Saturday.
5.  Pray for increased monthly contributions to this ministry.
6.  Pray that Elias will be able to get his drivers' license soon.
7.  Pray as we begin to plan for summer ministry.  5-Day Club locations are needed, summer missionaries to teach the clubs are needed, prizes to give to the children are needed.

Thank you for taking these petitions to the Lord on our behalf.
