Pray for the Hindals

Chris and Deb Hindal of GARBC International Ministries recently departed for a five-week ministry trip to India, Indonesia, Mynmar, and Thailand. Please pray for their strength, safety, and wisdom as they travel. They will be visiting with international partners and speaking multiple times. You may download their itinerary and pray specifically for their needs. As you view the itinerary, please pray for the international leaders and ministries listed also. Another item for your prayer list is the Hindals’ need of selling their Florida property.

Economy Impacts Churches

The economic downturn is affecting the financial state of churches in the Association.  Please pray for one another as our churches seek to keep vibrant ministries, impacting their communities for Christ. Pray that people in our churches will make giving to the Lord’s work their first priority in budgeting. Also, pray for the support needs of missionaries and the GARBC ministries who are affected by churches downsizing their missions budget. The GARBC has no obligatory dues; we depend upon churches voluntarily offering support. If your church is financially able, please consider adding the GARBC, 1300 N. Meacham Rd., Schaumburg, IL, 60173 to your 2009  missions budget.

Praise Regarding Protection

As Hurricane Ike roared through Houston,  three churches in the GARBC were in its path.  Praise the Lord, all of the churches report that they are doing well and only suffered minor damages! They will let Baptist Builders Club Director Michael Nolan know of any needs that arise.   Please continue to pray for  these Houston area churches  as they reach out in their communities in relief efforts.
