This is a Prayer Circle post for some urgent needs. In fact, this is taken from a letter that is going out to ministry supporters and subscribers. There is no teaching here – just an urgent request for you to join together in prayer for the things below. The prayer principle that is in view is this:
You have not because you ask not – Jesus
Prayer: An Open Letter
There are some important things I need to share with you. I’ll be as brief as I can.
ONE: Our time in Samana was awesome. Thanks for your continued prayers. See our website and the Keith Burnett Ministries Faceboook page for details and pics.
TWO: A recent ROW decision has an impact on me. I will now have some oversight responsibility for ROW regarding the orphanage in Barahona. This will add to our mission budget requirements for the year. It also means we still need hands and funds to finish the director’s quarters on the third floor of the orphanage. This means I’ll have some responsibility in raising the balance of the director’s annual salary.
All of that is reason to ask for your prayers. But I think a more important reason might help. If these actions are successful, who is helped? The orphans, of course. And what does Scripture call religion that is true and undefiled? The answer is: taking care of widows and orphans!
THREE: Some of you have inquired about the gift receipt letters coming from ROW. Changes are always challenging. I understand that and appreciate your patience. If you prefer, contributions can be sent directly to my office – PO 803, Scottsboro, AL, 35768. If you choose that option just continue to make contributions payable to ROW, memo the check with my name, then we will record the contributions and forward them to ROW. One of ROW’s accounting changes is having the names of department heads on their respective budget accounts. If you have questions, please know you are always free to call or write.
FOUR: We have several mission teams out between now and July. Those efforts are necessary, but the time they require will make #3 (above) all the more challenging. What’s more, the FALL schedule needs several more volunteers. Looks like a busy year, doesn’t it?
FIVE: Israel at Thanksgiving. If this is going to take place, folks need to move from “interested” to “I made a reservation.” Questions? Please call. Above all else, please pray – about all five of these things! Thanks much…
Soli Deo Gloria!
