Freely You Have Received Freely Give
Over the course of this school year you, students, TxBSM staff, and many others have prayed for God to call students to serve Him with their summer. The time has finally come for students to be sent out! This weekend 210 students will gather at Dallas Baptist University for Go Now Orientation. Over the course of the summer a total of 280 students will serve. (70 of these students are on Special Impact Teams) These 280 students are just a part of the 474 Go Now Missionaries serving in 2015.
Students have been challenged by Matthew 10:7-8 “As you go, proclaim this message: ‘The kingdom of heaven has come near.’ Heal the sick, raise the dead, cleanse those who have leprosy, drive out demons. Freely you have received; freely give.”
Please join us in praying for Go Now Orientation this weekend and for the 280 students serving this summer.
Pausing & Praying with you,
Ways to Pray
This weekend would be a time of spiritual preparation and practical preparation. Most importantly that students would leave there reminded to depend on God, not what they know or even their training.
Weather, it is suppose to rain. That can affect travel to Orientation and events at Orientation. As well as travel for students leaving for the field of service.
For parents and family member releasing their students to go. Especially those that are not believers.
For bonds and unity with partners and teams as they get to know each other. May they be of the “same heart and mind,” ready to be servants to each other and all those they go to serve.
Logistics and flexibility needed for a three day event for 210 students going to serve in 25 countries.
Go Now Staff – Brenda, Gloria, and Erica – for them to have energy, flexibility, wisdom, and to know that all power comes from God alone.
