“These things I have spoken to you, so that in Me you may have peace. In the world you have tribulation but take courage; I have overcome the world.” John 16:33
Dear Saints, the world has always been in opposition to God and His values. The times we live in are no different. We should not be surprised at the evil around us. We can be courageous and not fear because Christ lives in us! With God’s grace and His Spirit and your prayers, Danelle and I remain courageous in the battle to win souls. We pray that you will as well. Pray for revival in America - starting with us!
Training Children Our children are also under attack from the enemy. Parenting and grandparenting is an awesome opportunity to influence our children for eternity! Training children is much more than reading the Bible with them or taking them to church. How we live our lives as parents and grandparents has the greatest impact on these young people. In our churches we encourage the parents to be godly examples to their children of loving God and others. Children observe and they imitate our faith, conduct, and love. That is powerful and sobering. All of us need God’s grace to parent well.Morris Family - Atlanta House Church
Pray too for Danelle and I as we spend time with our grandchildren to have discernment and powerfully influence all 20 of them to have hearts for God. May they see Him and His love in us.
Regional Ministry Please pray for Danelle & me as we model, teach, and pray for our church families in Atlanta, Florida, Virginia, and North Carolina. We want to raise up more faithful disciples, starting with our own children, who will impact the world for Christ.

Prayer & Praise
1. Parents Pray for the parents in our churches to live courageous lives of genuine faith with their children. May they not fear the culture that seeks to control them.
2. Grandparents Ask God to empower Danelle and me to influence our grandchildren. I meet with Scott and his oldest son James each week to do a Discovery Bible study with personal application. It has been excellent. Pray for each child to love God, His Word, and others.
3. Children. Ask God to save the children in our churches & give them a growing relationship with Jesus. Pray for compassion for their non-Christian friends and courage to share Christ with them.
4. Health Pray for Danelle’s knee & my foot to heal. We miss walking and praying together.
Thank you for your prayers and financial support!
