October 2012 Update
Doug & Sharon Martin (1985)
Dear Prayer Partners,
Doug is on the road again this week – this time to Colorado along with 5 members of the new ABWE/USA Hispanic Ministries team for our 3rd Summit in the past 12 mos. Our goal is to meet Hispanic pastors, their wives and other Hispanic church leaders, and to discover what the Lord is already doing among Hispanics in Colorado while at the same time, discovering how we as an organization can come along side these pastors and churches to help them grow, plant additional churches and send missionaries! If you know of any Hispanic churches in the Denver/Colorado Springs area, please forward the attached flier to them!
We still need to raise $900 to cover the expenses for this upcoming trip. Please, please ask the Lord to provide these funds! If you would like to contribute $10, $25 or $50 toward investing in this trip and in these Hispanic Pastors, please send contributions to ABWE account #0720013-003 “USA-Hispanic Ministries”.
5-day Hispanic Summit Prayer Journal:
Tuesday: Pray that our team is able to make additional contacts with Hispanic pastors and churches in Colorado. Pray for at least 20 to attend the seminar.
Wed. Pray for Tuesdays request plus, pray for safety as we travel. Our summit team of 6 ABWE missionaries will be traveling to Denver this day.
Thursday: Pray for good final preparations! We are meeting all day to pray, review the summit schedule, and set-up at the church. Lastly, on Thursday, pray for us as we meet on this evening with students and leaders from the IDEAL Hispanic Bible Institute in Denver. Could this be a long-term relationship for our team? Is so, to what extent? Could this program be used for other Hispanic Pastors outside of Colorado?
Friday: Pray for all of the above, plus….Pray that the Lord would guide us to meet some additional pastors and churches – especially in the Colorado Springs area!
Saturday: Hispanic Summit Day! Please ask the Lord to move in the hearts of these Hispanic Pastors and their wives to attend. Pray that our team would demonstrate a humble servant spirit as we learn about their ministries and churches. Pray that we would be an encouragement to them and that relationships would be built.
Rejoicing in what the Lord is doing across North America!
Doug & Sharon Martin
