We're grateful for the time we spent with Grace Fellowship Church. (Above is a photo from Saturday!) It was a fruitful day of training and encouraging the youth leaders in their small group discussions. Please continue to pray for them, as well as the Whittier Christian High School and Redlands Christian School faculty as they continue to lead their students in discussions this year.
We have upcoming meetings with new partners and opportunities to connect with new churches and schools this month.
The Discussion for Transformation public event is this Saturday. We have quite a few parents attending. Please keep in prayer our speakers, our mentors, but especially those who attend -- that it would be refreshing and useful.
Upcoming donor events in September and October: please continue to pray for for smooth planning, good friendships, and a spirit of collaborative generosity. For Peter as he prepares to speak.
For continued godly discernment during the hiring process for the Director of The Academy.
For our Academy alumni, a number of whom are suffering or in distress.
This week, we read Psalm 20:
May the Lord answer you in the day of trouble!
May the name of the God of Jacob protect you.
May he send you help from the sanctuary
and give you support from Zion.
May he remember all your offerings
and regard with favor your burnt sacrifices.
May he grant you your heart's desire
and fulfill all your plans.
May we shout for joy over your salvation,
and in the name of our God set up our banners.
May the Lord fulfill all your petitions!
Now I know that the Lord saves his anointed;
he will answer him from his holy heaven
with the saving might of his right hand.
Some trust in chariots and some in horses,
but we trust in the name of the Lord our God.
They collapse and fall,
but we rise and stand upright.
O Lord, save the king!
May he answer us when we call.
