Please pray that God would:

-Speak through me and with His words in the various contexts: Sunday School class, youth service, regular Sunday services
-Provide funds for this next year of teaching at KCA, from one-time or monthly sponsors
-Keep me safe while traveling: across the ocean, to Kentucky, driving throughout MD/PA
-Provide enough personal funds for the things I will need to take care of while at home in America: gas, food while on the road, cell phone bill, doctor/dentist/eye doctor appointments
Nazarene Youth Conference:
In the past few weeks, I have been getting to know the students of the MK District via our Facebook group. They are sure to be a fun bunch, and I already know 3 of the Eurasia students and a few of the sponsors. I also discovered that I will have the chance to meet one of the MK's at my very own district Family Camp, just a week before NYC!
Please pray for these students and for us sponsors. Pray that the students will be open to what God wants to teach/tell them. Pray for us sponsors, that we would be able to guide these students closer to God, connect with them, and have the energy to last through the week! We will be there from July 5-10.
Thank you again for all your prayers and encouragement. I hope to see you sometime this summer!
