Discipleship Prayer Request February 21, 2015

Are you staying warm?

The cold played a part in a low turnout at Dixon.

I inattentive last week in that I did not update the Alumni movements. So I've included them this week.

Truly am so appreciative of your prayers as are the disciples. It grieves my heart that Pablo mentions it was his mother's birthday this past week. It perhaps would not be a heartache if he had not mentioned he hasn't seen her or heard from her in three years.

Please be certain to lift Pablo in your prayers.

To Him be the glory
