Join Donna and Me on a
Ten Day Holy Land Trip
March 1-10, 2019 (Mardi Gras Week)
For 20 years, I have said I would put this trip together and many have said, “I’ll Go!” This is a once in a lifetime trip. We will see Jerusalem, Bethlehem, Sea of Galilee, Masada, etc. and have dinner in the home of a local family. We already have people who have officially registered from the D.C. area, Gulf South and across the country. Brochures are available. Email me at MDSprague00@bellsouth.net if you would like more information.
- Our short Louisiana Special Session ended last week with frustration, gridlock and mistrust. The three-month Regular Legislative Session launched yesterday with the need for reconciliation, wisdom and courage. Pray for these times when God’s power is so needed.
- Pray for the Ministry of Reconciliation in dealing with leaders. Over the last few weeks and in the weeks to come I will be repeatedly speaking to groups or individuals where there is division and strong feelings of fracture. Pray for the ministry of Christ that bridges the gaps between God and man and one human being to another.
- Pray for the many small groups and speaking opportunities I am leading now.
- Pray for Donna in her work with me as well as leading a small group Bible study and serving as a volunteer at the Crisis Pregnancy Center.
