That God would be glorified in all we do!
- That we be filled with the Holy Spirit and power.
- That we be humble learners.
- That we know what and how to speak, when given the opportunity.
- That we inspire missionaries and national believers with the greatness of God and his salvation.
- That we be inspired with the global purposes of God and come back fired with the vision for Minneapolis and the unreached peoples.
- That the course in Manila be clear and life-changing for the “shepherds.”
- That my seminar in Singapore be true and clear and persuasive and helpful.
- That lifelong, strategic friendships be made in Singapore with young leaders from all over the world.
- That the Singapore conference will be used by God for great new thrusts in world evangelization.
- That the ministry in the L.A. area build the faith of the saints.
- That all the way along there would be fruitful occasions to witness to unbelievers.
- Health!!! And strength!!!
- Joy in all the work.
- Obedient spirits and healthy bodies for Karsten, Benjamin, Abraham, and Barnabas.
- A deepening union for Noël and me as we travel together.
Counting on you and the Spirit of Jesus,
