Pray BFF #88                                  March 7th, 2006

Dear Prayer Team,

They're Coming!

We are catching up after our visit to Paul's parents in Florida. The laundry piles up pretty quickly. So what is the hurry? The filming team that is contracted out from BBC is coming to our house tomorrow and will be here off and on for 1 week!  We need the Lord's strength. We are grateful that the weather looks like it is getting warmer so the children can play outside some rather than just getting an inside story. Since they want to film us and interview us, it will be quite busy especially for Paul and Linda. We can't quite prepare what to say. But as last time, we saw how the Holy Spirit helped us. So our confidence is in Him rather than in our wisdom.  May God use this documentary (no pay for us) on Biblical Parenting to build up the hope of His people around the globe to turn back to the scriptures and build godly families. God put the following verse on our hearts to steer us in this matter.

The righteous is a guide to his neighbor, 
But the way of the wicked leads them astray. 
(Proverbs 12:26, NASB).

Stepping up to bat

Fearful? Well, no. But probably nervous.  It is like stepping up to bat. The batter has waited so long to hit the ball and now is the chance. But as he steps up, he realizes it might not be as easy as he thought.  Paul will be speaking on the weekend of March 24 five times in Chinese. It will be like in China but here in the States. He is working through the messages now. The slides need to be translated. Thankfully someone is willing to do this. Paul will be speaking on one of his favorite topics, 'Experiencing Renewal through  Our Personal Devotions.'

We also will be starting an English Parenting Class soon, and if needed also a Chinese class.

Thanks to God!

Requests to God

Thanks for safety and health in our travels.

God blessed the times Paul spoke while traveling.

We are glad to be back but very busy trying to catch up.

Drafts for four out five talks for the retreat are done. 

Thankful for a special financial gift.

Thankful that Pastor Stephen in India had a good group of pastors from that one area wanting to work together to evangelize every village.

Paul discovered that the download files were not functioning because of the change of web host. Now corrected.

Praise God that we have about 2,500 pages viewed each day. Almost enough to reach a million by the year's end but not quite.

Beseech the Lord on behalf of the Bucknells as the BBC filming crew comes from March 8-16. May God bless us that the world would be blessed.

May God's Word mightily go forth on March 12 and 19th as Paul preaches.  

2/3rds of the counseling book is finished editing. Now for the last third. Please pray!

Pray for provision for a vehicle so that Pastor Stephen can reach those villages with more ease. .

Keep praying as Paul prepares slides, handouts and group exercises for the March 24-26 seminar/retreat.

Ask the Lord to prepare the right people for the ten week parenting course starting in March.

Serving Together for the Glory of God,

Paul and Linda Bucknell
