Petersons’ Prayer Guide - November 2005

“ I love the Lord because He hears and answers my prayers. Because He bends down and listens, I will pray as long as I have breath!” Psalm 116:1-2

* In our Oct. prayer guide, I asked you to join us in prayer for friends of ours working in Indonesia. When I read their report of the dedication event on Oct. 5th, I knew that God had answered these prayers in a powerful way. It literally brought tears of joy! Thanks for praying and supporting a family you don’t even know personally. It made a difference!

* God has helped us make our decisions about the short-term overseas missions opportunities. It doesn’t look like we’ll be taking any of them at this stage. We feel a peace, and are grateful to have had you standing with us as we’ve processed the possibilities.

* Gary’s mission talks to the pre-school and elementary aged kids at our church the past two Sundays seemed to go well. We pray they will result in long-term interest in missions.

* Esther was hired on Oct. 12th. by a small business in town to work 18 hours a week. They sell sterling silver flatware on the Internet and at auctions. Her work involves some writing, photography, receptionist and computer work. So far she seems to be enjoying it. Thanks for praying with us about this!

* My sister Jenny delivered a healthy baby girl on Oct. 14th. Our new niece is Marion Frances Blease (-:

* A very generous financial supporter who saw the note about our recent financial challenges has given us $ to purchase new tires for our car, and to replace our rather elderly computer. This was a big surprise and a huge blessing. Thanks for praying, and thanks, Ken & Susan for your incredible generosity!

* We were safe and suffered no damage to speak of from Hurricane Wilma on Monday.

* Esther had been experiencing dizzy spells since our accident in June. Those have now completely gone. Praise God with us!

Prayer Requests:

* Nov. 3 Gary will be doing workshops on Bible translation at the Hobe Sound Bible College (where he spoke at chapel last month)

* Nov. 10-14 Gary will run a cross cultural camp for the youth (Fri. night – Sat. afternoon) and speak at the youth Sunday School and evening youth program at Berrien Center Bible Church in Berrien, Michigan. They normally get only 6-7 young people turn out to the missions’ conference, but they already have 40 signed up for the camp. The youth pastor and missions committee are VERY excited! Please pray for safety in travel, good health and energy on this busy weekend and that God will do His work in the hearts of the youth and leaders.

Nov. 16th. Gary is sharing at a special Wycliffe chapel service here at the office.

Nov. 20th. Gary is speaking at both morning Kids Church programs at Centro Cristiano Restauracion here in Orlando. He will do the English part and a colleague will be doing the Spanish. There could be anywhere from 50-100 kids per service.

Nov. 22 – Gary’s birthday (:

Nov. 24-27 is the Thanksgiving holiday break. We would like to go somewhere as a family to help with hurricane cleanup during this time. Pray with us that we’d find a good place to go where we can be a blessing. Pray too for safety as we travel and work.

Nov. 24th. Happy Thanksgiving to you in the US!
