The annual conference of the Fellowship of Grace Brethren Churches begins today in Tampa, Fla. Tom Avey, conference coordinator, has sent the following requests. So take a few moments to remember these important meetings!
- Pray that we help each other see the lost. Mission is not just for the missionaries but we have to see people!
- Pray for all those un-planned super important encounters that happen at a conference. In some ways the program is just an excuse for the real work of hallway and poolside encounters.
- Pray for tired pastors and their families. I see lots of young families here and this is a great family location. I want them to be refreshed in body and spirit.
- Pray for the resort staff. They are watching. We will be Jesus to them.
- Pray for Jim Brown, our leader and a person passionate about showing Jesus to people.
- Pray for Sandy, Tom, Steve, Sandi, Carol, the Howards, the Walters, the Cosgroves and all the conference staff that we will sleep well and stay sweet.
Many people are traveling today to attend the conference. Also pray for safety on the road and in the air.
