Prayer Requests:
Good health for all; logistics to go well.

Safety in travel and in Africa
That we will honor Our Lord in all that we say and do.

Lord will draw pastors and wives in Copperbelt area of Zambia to the conference, to draw men to breakfast on Guarding Your Heart/Sexual Purity.

Lord will speak to each heart about their own marriage and bring change in their lives; that they will be faithful to each other, sexually pure physically and in their minds.

Lord will give them hope, help to remain faithful to Him and what He wants.

Each pastor and wife will model Christ and the Church in their marriage.

Each pastor/wife will teach many people God’s design for oneness in marriage.

Jacque & Megan will speak to many high school students, that they will inspire the students to remain pure until marriage and to have a closer walk with the Lord.
