Nelson Newsletter – Special Prayer Requests

Kiev Running Camp
June 15-20, 2009

Dear Ministry Friends,
This is a special request for prayer for our Running Camp next week, June 15-20, 2009. We have worked hard this past month to recruit 23 high school students from 6 local schools. There are 5 Americans coming to coach, lead discussions, share their testimonies and lead the camp. We have hired translators, made plans for training, discussions, showing Christian movies, and we even have two Ukrainian Christian Body Builders (Power Team) coming to share the gospel one afternoon.
It reminds me of the verse, “The horse is prepared for the day of battle, but victory belongs to the LORD.” Proverbs 21:31. We are ready, but we need God to bring about the victory: to prepare the hearts of these young people to hear the truth, to fill us with love and wisdom, to save the parents of these students, and to give grace for the unexpected.
Please pray:
  1. The students to show up. They are 13-17 years old and unpredictable.
  2. Their hearts to be open to the truth and come to Christ for salvation.
  3. We would speak boldly, with compassion and wisdom.
  4. For physical strength and health and safety.
  5. For their parents to come on Saturday to the competition.
  6. That Jesus would be glorified!

Thank you for standing with us before God’s throne of grace,

Steve and Danelle Nelson
