Latest Prayer Update
October 14, 2013
Dear Prayer Partners,
Desiring God Report: Thank you so much for any who prayed for Randy as he prepared for and attended the Desiring God National Conference in September. God truly did answer your prayers by providing strength and direction throughout the weekend, and especially during his speaking session, and then keeping him healthy after an exhausting few days.
Randy shared that the best part of the conference was its Christ-centeredness, both in the worship and teaching from others. (You can read a longer report on his blog.) One of the many great things about Desiring God is that they post videos from all the conference sessions (including Randy’s message) online so those who can’t afford the time or money to attend can still benefit from the teaching.
Here are some ways you can be praying for Randy and EPM in the coming weeks:
Writing time away: This week Randy is away spending some concentrated time writing, the majority of it on his big book on happiness. Please pray that God would stretch the hours and make it very profitable (and enjoyable and refreshing!) for him.
Harvest Christian Fellowship: Randy will be speaking at Harvest in Riverside, California on Sunday, October 27. The topic will be a Q&A interview on a variety of subjects including Heaven and evil and suffering. The specific service times are:
- 7:30 a.m. – 9 a.m. (PT)
- 9:30 a.m. – 11 a.m.
- 11:30 a.m. – 1:00 p.m.
New donors: Over the coming months, EPM will be exploring some new and creative ways to share about our need for regular monthly donors, including through a video and a note in our magazine. We’re asking God to bless these efforts and raise up new donors to join us in ministry in this way.
We hope you know how much the Alcorns and EPM appreciate your prayers!
