Week of January 30th

Monday | Tuesday | Wednesday | Thursday | Friday

  • Pray for Pastor/Planter Daniel Estrada and El Buen Pastor in Beaverton Oregon & their more recently planted campus in Vancouver, Washington.  Pray that God would raise up strong leaders and future planters as they seek to continue multiplying.  Pray for favor among the community, that hearts would be softened and ears would be open to hearing the Gospel.

    Pray also for Daniel's wife Mary, as she serves alongside him in the work of the Kingdom.

  • Pray for our Partners: Richard McKay, Lead Missions Pastor at Fielder Church in Arlington, Texas.  Pray also for Lead Pastor Jason Parades, Executive Pastors Jim Parks and Jared Yates, and all of the staff at Fielder as they strive to glorify God through all they do.  We are so grateful for the long-standing partnership of Fielder with the Northwest, and their vision to see God at work across the nation and around the world.  Pray that they would continue to listen to God's leading and follow hard after Him in all they do.

    Pray also for Richard's wife Glyn, and their 3 adorable children.

  • Pray for Pastor/Planter Freddy Joklur Jr. and Airway Heights Marshallese Church in Airway Heights, WA.  Pastor Freddy actually is pastoring Valleypoint Marshallese Church, while planting in Airway Heights and also serving as the English worship pastor at Valleypoint Church.  Pray that God will bless and multiply his time and resources, so he can effectively minister and not become weary.  Pray for God to raise up and strengthen leaders to work alongside him with both congregations.  Pray that they would be able to connect with many of the Marshallese people and for open doors to share the Gospel.

  • Pray for the Church Planter Wives. Church Planter Wives carry a heavy load between helping to plant the church and caring for their husband and kids. Planter Wives are often the behind-the-scenes, unsung heroes of a church plant. We are SO incredibly grateful for them!

    February in the Northwest can include short, gloomy days. Much like the movie "Groundhogs Day," these can seem unending at times. The at-times bleak weather, coupled with the uncertainty often inherent in church planting, can lead to times of discouragement. Please pray for encouragement, refreshment, renewal, provision, and joy. Pray that each Church Planter Wife finds at least one close, local friend and confidante.  Pray that they will press into Jesus for refreshing and daily strength.

  • Pray for our team!

    Please pray for Phil Peters.  Phil is our "utility player" catalyst....while he is assigned specifically to help with the work in Regions 2 and 3, he is also assisting with works in Regions 1 and 5!  Pray for him as he travels throughout the Northwest, meeting with planters and pastors to coach and encourage them.  Pray for his wife, Elaine, his grown children Tim, Beth, Becky and their families.
