Prayer Requests: July 31

Hello dear friends and family of the Micah Project!  Things have been a little crazy around here, well really what week isn't a little crazy around the Micah House! Join us this week in lifting up the following petitions to our Heavenly Father:

-Praise the Lord Marvin Morazon received his Visa! He is still working on figuring out details, but will most likely be traveling to the US (to Oregon) in early August.  His classes at Portland Community College will begin in September.  Keep Marvin in your prayers as he begins another chapter of his life and transitions to living and going to school in the US.

-This week our dear friends John and Becca Bell (as well as Mocha and Macky) will be moving to the US.  John will be studying at the Denver Seminary and Becca will be working as a US representative of the Micah Project.  We are sad to see them go but know that the Lord has great plans to use them in Denver. May they continue to shine and share God's love with everyone they come in contact with.  Pray for peace and strength and wisdom for them in this time of transition.  Also keep the rest of the Micah staff and boys in your prayers as we transition as well.  For some of the staff members this means taking on new roles and responsibilities.  Pray for guidance and strength for us as well.

-Last week for our "Day of Light" activity we helped Ana move furniture and things into her new house in Villa Linda Miller.  Ana has been such a huge part of Micah since 2000 and it is great to be able to bless her with this house.  (She has been living in one of the most dangerous parts of the city and is a single mom raising two kids.)  Ana was overwhelmed with joy at seeing her new house and is excited to finish moving in soon!

- We are still waiting for our building permit to break ground for Micah 2.0.  Pray that this may come through soon!

We thank and praise you for your continuous love, support, and prayers that you send our way.  We are so grateful for all of you!
Grace and Peace.

Prayer Requests: July 17

Good morning friends and family of the Micah Project! Please join us this week in praying for the following:

-The Micah boys continue to work out on the new land every week.  They are making great progress.  We are still anxiously awaiting the building permit.  Pray that the permit will come through soon, as we are excited to start building!

-Next week Monday Marvin Morazon has his Visa interview.  He has been accepted to Portland Community College in Oregon and is looking forward to moving to the states in the next month or so, God willing.  May he not feel anxious or nervous about the interview and know that everything is in the Lord's hands.

-This past weekend we were able to spend some time with friends from another ministry, Links of Hope.  We had a mini-talent night during which some of our boys performed the songs they have written.  It was a great evening of worship and fellowship!

-Danilo, one of the boys from the first Micah generation, as started learning the ropes of staying the night at Micah.  This will allow Michael more time to rest as well as work on things for Micah 2.0.  So far the boys have done a pretty good job of being respectful and obedient to Danilo.  Soon he will be staying the nights by himself.  We are proud of him and it's neat to see him giving back to Micah.

We thank you for your continuous love, support, and prayers that you pour out for us.  We couldn't do it without a great family that is behind us every step of the way.
Grace and Peace.
