Weekly Prayer Items - November 12-18, 2017
GBC Family of the Week: John, Twyla, Sheyan, Kyla, Amber, & Nicole
MBA Church of the Week: Waverley Church, Winnipeg, MB
Lead Pastor, Tony Penner; Thomas Pujol, Children's Pastor; Jeremy Yuen,
Missionary of the Week: Paul and Tanya Gericke, NAB Missionaries, Romania.
Paul and Tanya moved to Romania three years ago to help establish Camp
Falcon Rock as a destination for students, churches, and leaders to be
educated about spiritual, emotional, and physical health. While a few structures
have been built, there is still much work to be done to get the camp fully
operational. Praise God for the VBS programs this past summer, and pray that
the seeds that were planted would grow deeply. Pray for Paul and Tanya as
they continue building relationships with the youth in their community. Pray for
the hard work moving forward with the strategic development of the camp
facility, especially for the necessary permits to be granted in a timely manner.

Pray for the Persecuted Church: Sri Lanka
About 50 people gathered at a 250-year-old church in Matara, on Sri Lanka’s
southern coast, in mid-October to receive books intended to help them grow in
faith. Two students led a worship service to express gratitude to God for the
books. Days later, a second distribution took place in north-central Sri Lanka.
Pray that those who received the books will read them, apply what they learn
to their lives and share the books with others. Pray that these books will
encourage all who read them and lead them to a more active faith.
Please join us in prayer for the next pastor of GBC, and that God will be
preparing the person that we need. Pray as well for the search
committee, and that we will be sensitive to God’s leading.
