Back-to-School: Pray for us next week

Written by Kristen Maxwell, Bhutanese Youth and Children's Director

It feels like summer has FLOWN by.  It seems like just yesterday we were getting ready for Kids Camp and beginning to look for backpack donations.

Thank you to everyone who partnered with us by donating a backpack.  With your support we were able to distribute over 270 backpacks in our neighborhood!  The love of Jesus was shared through a backpack! 

On Monday many of the kids in Kansas City, Kansas will head back to school.  As a former teacher, I can't help but be excited about the promises a new year brings; new kiddos, new friendships, and new adventures. As I was praying for the kids school year, I was convicted to pray for their schools by name.  Will you join me in that? Join me in praying for the 19 schools that we have kids going to. 

Pray for protection, pray for peace; pray for wisdom for the teachers, and learning for the students. 
Pray for the schools to be places where kids feel loved and welcomed.
Pray for good influences to surround our kids, and when they see things that don't seem right pray that they have the courage to ask questions.
Pray for a supernatural ability of language acquisition for our kids who don't speak much English. 
Pray for a familiar face, or a new friend for our kids who have never attended school in the US.
Pray that God would bless the students, teachers, administrators, and support staff with a wonderful year!
