Prayers Wanted {Love on a Missionary Week}

Hopefully, you’ve been around this week to meet Josh & Lisa Arrington, my dear friends who are currently serving as missionaries and church planters in a corner of Canada. Unreached people groups in Canada? Yep, kinda. Pitt Meadows is a town of 20,000 and, until they began Church on the Rock, there was only one other evangelical church reaching out to the people there (which is, by the way, just outside of Vancouver).

Maybe you haven’t been able to participate in my online Arbonne party to help support Lisa’s small business. You CAN, however, PRAY.

Would you mind taking a minute to pray specifically for the Arringtons and their ministry partners, the Cox family, as they work to spread the gospel in Pitt Meadows, British Columbia, Canada?

Here are some prayer requests from Lisa:

-God would send more workers to the team

-Strength (we are weary)

-God would provide what is needed to begin a Sunday service; we are headed in that direction but still waiting on the Lord’s provision. (We will continue our midweek homegroup but that is growing and we are about to outgrow our home, so we need a place to all come together on Sunday. There are several people who can’t come to the homegroup but are totally on board with a Sunday service.)

-Perseverance

-That God would use my business as a way to meet new women in the community and to provide for my family so that we are not having to depend on financial partnerships for our family to live on.

-Praise for EVERYTHING God has done.

I would like to ask that you also pray for their ability to overcome homesickness. Moving is tough on families–on the little ones who are miles away from grandparents, on the “big ones” who miss their friends and family. Though they have been in Canada for a while now, please pray that they will feel more and more “at home” there. 

{Let us then approach the throne of grace with confidence, so that we may receive mercy and find grace to help us in our time of need.  Hebrews 4:16}

    Hmmm…I need to be checking in on your blog more often. :) I am an Arbonne addict and I am in need of stuff. I may need to make a little order before the 20th. :) Great idea!
