December 31—David & Serena Carr, Lenwood, CA

dec-27-d-carr.jpgLenwood is located on historic Route 66, just west of Barstow in the high desert region of southern CA. The area is a melting pot, having a highly diverse culture with people from all areas of the country and from all walks of life. Having people from such varied backgrounds brings incredible blessings within the church, seeing the people pull together as one in Christ. However, the community also has a strong underlying culture of its own, which unfortunately revolves around drugs, homelessness, and gang activity. We are extremely thankful for the many new families we are seeing in the church, and for the strength of those who have been here for awhile. One of the main focuses of the church is to reach out to the families that have been ravaged by the destructive nature of the drug culture, by reaching out to their children. Please pray for a new awakening in Lenwood—for Lenwood needs Jesus!

December 24—Ken & Joyce Weldon, Montville Center, CT

dec-19-weldon.jpgWe are located in the southeast corner of the state; the church is in a rural area, surrounded closely by cities and suburbs. There are several elderly people in the church family who are in poor health and need God’s grace. We’re also praying for God’s direction in reaching the new families that are building all around us.

December 17—Steve & Sharon Waite, Wytopitlock, ME

waites-dec-12.jpgWe are located 40 miles south of Houlton and 90 miles north of Bangor.  We are a small town in the most southern part of Aroostook County and have a population of less than 400 people. Wytopitlock is a community with much history in the woods industry, and continues to provide employment for many of the men in the area. Sharon and I enjoy being available to help in our community and be an encouragement in any way we can. Please pray that our church would be a good lighthouse. Pray that we would continue to grow spiritually. Pray that our men’s and ladies’ Bible studies would grow as well. Pray that God would give our church leaders the strength they need.

December 10—Len & Helen Trenholm, Meadow Creek, BC

trenholms-dec-5.jpgNestled in a beautiful but remote valley in south-central British Columbia between Kootenay and Duncan Lakes, Meadow Creek is a year-round playground, with high country skiing in the winter and four-wheeling and boating in the summer. Over the past year we have seen a major downturn in our local lumber industry, which is our main means of employment. Local businesses and the entire valley are being affected by the change in the economy—more houses are being put up for sale, and families are moving out of the area in search of employment. Please pray for spiritual growth in our church leadership, and pray that our people would have a vision of God’s work here, and see their responsibility in working towards the fulfillment of that vision.
