Dear Canaan EMers and friends,
As we approach the highlight of our summer – Vacation Bible School – I encourage you to pray and prepare for a time to encourage children and their parents in their faith. Here is Nicole Lu’s prayer letter for VBS:
Dear VBS team, Canaan Pastoral Staff, Canaan Elders, and Canaan CM Leadership Team,
PandaMania VBS is only a few days away!
Please keep these key dates/events in prayer for us:
– pray for our Training #2 this Saturday, 7/30 (9am to 12noon); we are in of 2 more people to help care for kids of staff members attending the training
– pray for our VBS Commissioning Service this Sunday, 7/31 (12noon in WH1)…attend this service to pray for our team
– pray for our BIG decorating session this Sunday, 7/31 (1pm to 4pm); we need lots of people to stay and help move furniture and decorate rooms and hallways – meet Nicole Lu outside of WH1 to get directions
Please continue to:
– keep praying for God’s work in the lives of registered VBS kids
– keep praying for VBS Planning Team (Nicole Lu, Shirley Tai, and Peggy Tsai) as we take care of all of the details for VBS week
– pray for stations leaders’ teaching preparations
– pray for crew leaders’ preparations for loving and leading their crew members
– pray for all other helpers’ preparations for their vbs role
– pray for health and safety for everyone involved
We now have 98 VBS kids registered (only a handful have not paid)! Most of the registered kids attend Canaan or other local churches…please pray that these church-going kids will know God better during the VBS week. Do keep the non-church going kids/families in your prayers…that the child’s heart will be opened to God’s love and truths especially during VBS week, since they don’t regularly attend a church the rest of the year.
Thanks for your prayers.
