There is some serious stuff going on in the world, and in our own country. Please take some time out from whatever you are doing and implore God to have mercy on:
* The doctors, aid workers, researchers, and policy makers who are working to get ahead of the Ebola Outbreak. Cry out to God for the 1,000s who are sick and dying, and for their loved ones.
* Iraq. The Yazidis, Christians, and other minorities targeted by ISIS. Pray for ISIS soldiers and leaders as well. Our battle is not against flesh and blood.
* For justice in the wake of the Michael Brown shooting. Not just retributive justice, but for the presence of peace and fairness. Racism is a terrible sin, and it burns underneath the surface of our country. Pray for the frustrated and disenfranchised who have no voice. Pray the powerful will have new hearts. Pray for justice.
* For God’s Kingdom to come, and his will to be done, here on earth as it is in heaven: Ukraine, Sudan, the Gaza strip… lift up world leaders, the poor, the victims, the perpetrators. Chris

Herrera, Santo Domingo, Dominican Republic… that’s the destination of a last minute team from Everyday Church. We’re going to assist with some urgent projects at the school we’re partnering with in that neighborhood. The school has about 450 students, as well as teachers and administrators, in a severely poor area of the city.
After visiting in January, the Everyday Church Global Outreach Team selected this school as our initial focus for ministry in the DR. Everyday participants are already sponsoring kids at the school, and now we’re going back to serve.
Please pray for Holly, Mike, Bart and Larry as they prepare for this trip. Pray they are full of the Spirit and wisdom as they serve the school. Pray for safe travel, that the funds come together, and the trip is a blessing to the school and Everyday Church.
As God blesses us, may we bless the world.
We’re engaged in meaningful, inspiring work in the Dominican Republic. Come learn about the hundreds of children who attend Vision Trust’s school in Herrerra, a very poor district of the Capitol, and how we partner with them. Pray with the four Everyday participants (Larry, Holly, Mike, and Bart) who are traveling to serve there this August 7-12.
When: July 26, 10a-12p
Where: The Bennett’s Apartment
