July 6: Gary & Vicky Turner, Nile, WA

We’re 30 miles NW of Yakima on Highway 410, in the scenic Nile Valley along the Naches River. There are about 1000 people in the area, mostly retired couples, with some younger families. The church has a variety of ages and a full program of activities. We arrived in May, and we praise God for a good welcome; we pray for a fruitful ministry in the church and community. Pray for Toby and Joy, our youth pastor & wife, as they minister to the area youth. Pray for VBS the last week of July. Pray for me as I meet with individual men for discipleship, and for Vicky to be an encouragement to the ladies. Pray for God’s strength & wisdom for the Flying H Boys’ Ranch staff, and for the boys to respond to the program, turn to Christ, and be reconciled to parents and families. Pray for our son and daughter to walk closely with the Lord and be guided by Him.

June 29: Walt & Rosanna Jacoby, District Representatives, Southwest District

We serve 26 missionaries and the churches they serve in Arizona, California, and Nevada. Please pray for new Village Missionaries, Ashley & Janet Anderson, who have just started serving at Friant, CA. Several of our missionaries and churches are involved in some phase of a building project. Please pray for God’s glory, wisdom, and provision. Please pray that the Lord will be glorified as He ministers through us to encourage the missionaries and the churches. Please pray that the Lord will grant us His wisdom to minister effectively. Please pray that the Lord will raise up Hispanic VMs to serve our field at Kettleman City, CA. Please pray for each missionary family and church we serve to have the Lord’s grace, wisdom, protection, and encouragement as they faithfully serve Christ in loving the people and proclaiming His gospel.

June 22: Tim & Pam Buchanan, Spring Valley, CO

Our community is about 10 miles northeast of Monument, CO. The church is in the country with a growing community around it, but no town per se. The church meets in a small chapel it rents from a cemetery in a very secluded area. God has truly blessed us by allowing us to purchase 14 acres of land right on the highway in the last few years. Now we are starting the construction process for our own building. Please pray for wisdom as we trust Him to direct the process of building and for His help getting through all the red tape. We need to be visible to the community so we can reach people for Christ.

June 15: Bill & Mary Korf, Cotopaxi, CO

Located in the mountains on the Arkansas River, about 1½ hours SW of Colorado Springs, this is a mostly retired community with a very transient population. The Royal Gorge is just down the river. Rafting, fishing, skiing, and hunting are all popular here. Our county is the prison capital of the United States, with over 15 prisons. We praise the Lord for the many new families we have worshipping with us. Both men’s and women’s Bible studies meet just about every day of the week. God has blessed us with many great workers. Pray for wisdom to best meet the needs of the family of God here. Pray for opportunities to lead others to the Lord of all creation, for strength to carry out the many responsibilities we both have, and for more children to be brought into our Sunday school department.

June 8: Laurie & Marjorie Goertzen, Rose Prairie, BC

Upper Pine Gospel Chapel is at Rose Prairie, a rural community 25 minutes north of Fort St. John, in northeastern British Columbia. Many people subsidize their cattle and grain operations with other employment, such as oil patch work, logging, or service industries. Hunting and trapping are common pursuits, and some local men work for outfitters that guide hunters from the USA and Europe. Praise the Lord for the witness of many individuals in our church family in the planned outreaches throughout the year, as well as in the daily round of life and work. We are grateful to the Lord for meaningful contact with people who really want to grow. Please pray that as a body and as individuals, our church would continue to mature in Christ and be a light for Him in our community.
