Prayer Requests/Answers to Prayer


Dear partners in prayer,,,​

Easter's celebration of Jesus' resurrection is our most important celebration in our Christian lives! Thank you, Jesus!

I passed on to you what was most important and what had also been passed on to me. Christ died for our sins, just as the Scriptures said. He was buried, and he was raised from the dead on the third day, just as the Scriptures said. I Corinthians 15:3-4

1. We are in our spring tour of churches to present the Alliance work worldwide and specifically Paraguay. Thank you for PRAYing for us. Below is a list of churches for April. We will be in western Pennsylvania. If you are nearby, please stop by and join us!

April 5 - Cross Connections Church, McDonald, PA
9 - Derry Friendship Community Alliance Church,
​ Latrobe, PA​
22-23 – Reynoldsville Alliance Church, Reynoldsville, PA
30 – Cecil Alliance Church, McDonald, PA

2. The report of the young adult’s weekend retreat March 4-5 in Paraguay is that it went very well, PRAISE God! Thank you for praying!

3. Please PRAY for the annual Paraguay Pastor’s Retreat for the seven Alliance churches, April 11-13. This is a spiritual retreat and we pray the Lord to minister to all the pastors, leaders, and their wives.

4. The Mi Esperanza Church in Asuncion, Paraguay is having a month long children’s program, every Saturday of April (8, 15,22 & 29), ending on May 6 in the plaza near the church. This is an outreach ministry, based on the Operation Christmas Child program. Please PRAY for Karen who is leading this, and for the children of the neighborhood to be reached so that they will become believers in Jesus!

5. Please continue to PRAY for the three young men studying full time for the pastorate at a seminary in Asuncion, Paraguay - Angel, Arnaldo and Diosnel - as they press forward to their goal of being pastors.

6. Our hearts are burdened for the country of Venezuela (we served as IWs there from 2004-2008) during an ongoing economic crisis. The Alliance churches are strong and ministering to many who are turning to the Lord. Please PRAY for the people and the churches of Venezuela.

Thank you for praying so faithfully for us. Should the Lord lead you, you may give to us and our ministries the following ways:
