FAMILY WORSHIP — FROM THE NEW CITY CATECHISM

Question 41: What is the Lord's Prayer?

Answer: Our Father in heaven, hallowed be your name, your kingdom come, your will be done, on earth as it is in heaven. Give us today our daily bread. And forgive us our debts, as we also have forgiven our debtors. And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil.

Matthew 6:9

Pray then like this: “Our Father in heaven, hallowed be your name. . . .”

UPDATES FROM SOME OF OUR MISSIONARIES AND SUPPORTED AGENCIES

Ken and Cathy Yinger

As you know, Spain was hit very hard and very fast by the coronavirus.

In their March newsletter, Ken and Cathy wrote: "We are so grateful, more than ever, for the privilege of being in Spain right now.  Thanks to you and your prayers and gifts, we can tell people (and we do) that God has allowed us to be here, right now, to walk with them through this time of crisis.  It didn’t occur to us to return to Canada, and now, it’s not possible.  But we aren’t afraid, just prudent, and seeking to to make the most of our time (Read Ephesians 5:15-16.)"

They have kept busy with prayer, bible reading, hobbies, and connecting with others through technology.  Cathy sewed hundreds of masks for health care workers.

Their prayer requests are for themselves, and for us as well.

  •  for prepared and changed hearts
  •  to develop significant connections with people
  •  to be able to identify and engage with persons of peace
  •  to find ways to walk with people in their discovery process as they interact with the Bible

 

Rebekah Drew            

Rebekah arrived safely in Papua New Guinea on March 15, just before travel was shut down.  In her latest newsletter, she writes that she won't be able to leave Ukarumpa or travel for some time. She is keeping busy working on a paper, volunteering in her community, looking after the dogs and horses on her property, and preparing a translator training course.

Here are her prayer requests:

  • PRAISE God that my financial needs were
    met, and I was able to return to PNG!
  • PRAY that COVID-19’s spread and impact in
    PNG will be minimal. PRAY that it will cause
    people to seek the Lord and trust in him.
  • Although my back was doing quite well in the
    weeks before my departure, since arriving back
    in PNG it hasn’t been great. Please keep
    PRAYing for it to get better!
  • PRAY that our plans will reach fruition in God’s
    good timing, and that we will be able to use this "extra" time well.

 

Heritage College and Seminary            

At Heritage, they ask for prayers for the following:

  • Our College and Seminary students as they strive to finish their Winter Semester well and they continue to study online from home 
  • The hardworking faculty from Heritage as they prepare lectures and support students online 
  • Our staff as they continue to serve the Heritage community from their homes online  

Here is the link to their most recent newsletter: https://myemail.constantcontact.com/News-from-Heritage-College---Seminary.html?soid=1111130192940&aid=st-_0K3yCZk

Another great way to stay in touch with Heritage is to follow them at https://discoverheritage.ca/.   The newsletter mentions several resources, such as sermons and online courses, and they hope to keep adding resources for churches and their congregation.

 

Terry and Joanie Wiley

Terry and Joanie are currently safe and well in Three Hills, Alberta.  Terry’s trip to Ethiopia was cancelled due to the Covid 19 pandemic.  Terry will begin a Masters in Leadership program in May.  Joanie is currently unable to do her volunteer work at the hospital.  She is supporting new mothers remotely through webinars and doing errands for people who are self-isolating.

Their prayer requests are as follows:

  • Wisdom and courage for the pastors and leaders of the church in Ethiopia as they seek to support their global missionaries, many of whom have become extremely cut off .
  • Wisdom for themselves in how to use their time, and that God will use them as channels of His grace to others.

 

Barney and Adelia Robison

Barney and Adelia are home from the Gambia and are winding down their ministry in preparation for retirement.  In their March letter, they wrote "There was joy, amongst the tears shed in saying good-byes, so soon to leave, with people we have poured our lives and time into; salvation, 10 baptisms, disciples, and counseled in their walk with God. ... but we look forward to see what God has next for us to do, once we have rested and medical things have cleared up."

Here are their prayer requests:

  • Their daughter, Heidi, had her first baby on March 21.  Please pray for recovery after complications from her emergency C-section.
  • Making right decisions concerning where to settle down
  • Journeying mercy as they finish reporting to their churches
  • Barney as he finishes up his Doctorate Course
