Pray BFF#50 October 16, 2003
Dear Prayer Team,
Shaped by Priorities
Prayer to focus on major tasks and not get side-tracked is a regular prayer need. Editing and organizing use up alot of time. The Parenting Seminar, for example, is being updated and therefore has 'stolen' time from other projects. For example, Paul is working to bring the Chinese translation into web format. This requires numerous time-occupying tasks.
We are amazed to see how much the Lord has done in the last 2 1/2 years. Because of the volume, however, producing the Library of BFF material is tedious. The first Library still hasn't been burned so creating one that many can use and want to pass around is demanding. We would like to add an introductory video clip, but that might need to wait.
Despite our humble existence, we are grateful that the Lord sees fit to bring blessings to others through BFF. Last month we had our highest reading with 27,000+ page views. Our original goal for this year was to reach 30,000 (1,000 per day), but because of high increase early on, we doubled it to 60,000. Let us keep praying for 2,000 page views every day.
Paul has been asked to serve on "The Next Step" team for a large mission's conference. This parallels his great interest in the development, training and processing of workers into fulltime service. Many people commit themselves to full-time ministry but never actually get there. "The Next Step" will provide the necessary support and guidance they need to take the next step toward full-time service. We praise God for the many fruitful ideas already shared.
We need your prayers!
