Paul left Titus in Crete to carry out this task. We also must seek to find men who understand the times and who have knowledge of what should be done.

GOSPEL GLEANING PRAYER POINTERS
- Covid is rampaging through India. Hostility to Christianity is on the rise. This week we might use Psalm 119:161 as a prayer launching pad. Princes persecute me without cause, but my heart stands in awe of Your words. Whether it is Princes or Pandemics that seek to intimidate the Literacy Students and their Teachers, may their hearts be encouraged as they continue to read and consider God’s Word. May they know that He is Master of all.
- Jesus is the One who stilled the waters of the stormy sea when the disciples were afraid of being swamped and drowned. Certainly, there are stormy seas for the populations of Chad and Niger. Christians also in those lands are experiencing the same storms. But they have Jesus to captain their ship. Pray that God will bless their labors and invitations to others to come aboard their ship and find peace in the midst of roiling waters.
A GREAT BIG “Thank you” to all who helped make this week’s Rummage Sale a success, especially the pack-up crew on Thursday night. We made over $8,100, which is a new record. We are grateful for God’s provisions. We are already accepting donations for the next sale. Please note that we only accept items in usable condition. Place items in the center of the Rummage Room (on gym level) so that our sorters can keep up with the incoming goods, or call the church office if unsure of the procedure.

PLEASE JOIN US FOR OUR NEXT TACOS prayer event on Tuesday, May 25th at 7 pm. TACOS reminds us to come to God in prayer with Thanksgiving, Adoration, Confession, while remembering to pray for others and ourselves. This month we will be meeting in the choir room downstairs. We will open our time with songs of praise & worship at 7 pm and wrap things up by 8:30. Let’s agree with Paul the apostle as he exhorts us to not be anxious about anything but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God. Hope to see you there!
