On Sunday of the prayer calendar this week we prayed for LIFT at Jenison Bible Church in Jenison, Michigan. Karen has been the coordinator of that ministry, but she's stepping down because she and her husband are facing their own medical challenges. She's asked prayer for more volunteers and for someone to fill her role.
It's fitting to focus on this at-home ministry today since we made a pretty big splash a few days ago reporting on the LIFT trainings that occurred in the Philippines over the past week. Dr. Mae Corvera and her team have developed a thriving ministry that is bearing fruit and serving as a model for ministry in other parts of that country.
Life Matters would like to see more churches in the U.S. develop LIFT programs. For that to happen, we'd probably need to devote a staff person to to the tasks of contacting pastors, recruiting, training, and consulting with coordinators, and hosting LIFT conferences like the one at which we met Karen several years ago. Will you pray with us toward that end?
