Prayer Requests: June 28

Hello friends and family of the Micah Project! This week we ask you to join us in praying for the following:

*Brayan Chavez
John Bell and Brayan are traveling to San Jose, Costa Rica to get Brayan all set up and settled in with his YWAM program.  Pray for safe travels for them.  Pray for strength, wisdom, and peace for Brayan.  May this be a time for growth and learning for him.  May God reveal His great and glorious plan for his life.

*Oscar Amaya
Oscar is currently working a camp called Honey Rock, which is located in Wisconsin and is associated with Wheaton College.  Pray for energy and strength as he puts in lots of hours at camp.  May God be preparing him for his transition to Wheaton in the fall.

*Micah 2.0
Today Michael and Marlon are meeting with a lawyer to discuss the plans and process of the new land.  Pray for guidance and that God's will may be done.  We are excited to begin the building process soon!

* For the smiles, laughter, and joy that the boys bring to our lives and to the lives of those around them.

*That the boys who went to church camp this weekend had a fun and safe experience while learning more about our wonderful Savior.  May they continue to put into practice all that they learned.

We praise and thank our Heavenly Father that He is always there for us.  He was, He is, and He always will be.  We are thankful for all of your prayers and support! God's blessings!

Dear friends and family,

Greetings from a hot, humid, and rainy Tegucigalpa!  We have had a few busy months here, but our weekly prayer requests and praises are up and running again! We ask that you join us in praying for the following areas:

*The elementary students
They are finishing up their second quarter of school this week and have exams every day.  Pray that they may focus, study hard, and do their best.

*Micah 2.0 
Continued prayers on the plans and development for the new land.  Last week we were able to show our visitors the new land and it was great to envision what the place will look like. 

*Safe travels for the staff
Several of the Micah staff members will be traveling during the next few weeks. Pray for safety and protection in their travels, as well as rest and relaxation and quality time with family and friends.

We also ask that you join us in giving thanks to God for He is good!

We were blessed to have a small group from FPC in Houston, TX visit us this past weekend. We have also had 4 girls from West Virginia visiting us since last week.  It's great to have old friends visit, as well as to make new ones.  We are thankful for the joy and encouragement they brought. 

We have had many months of stability in the house.  The boys are working hard to move forward and make positive steps in their lives.  We pray that the boys may continue to grow and mature into the young men God has called them to be. 

Brayan Chavez was accepted into a YWAM program in Costa Rica and will be leaving at the end of this month.
Juan Carlos Ortiz started a new job this week at a car wash (where Brayan Chavez put in lots of hours of hard work.)
Continued praise for Olvin and Jarvin's graduations and the encouragement they have been to the younger guys. 

Thank you for all of your continued support, love, and prayers for the project! God's blessings to you!
