Prayer Requests

Dear praying friends


ONE: It's possible that the Lord is opening to us a golden opportunity. A young man in his mid-twenties is very exercised to join with Cross Canada Cruisers.

However, there is one special challenge. He uses a wheelchair full time. The Lord has provided him a new wheelchair-accessible van which he can use, and, in his words, "although I am very independent, I would have different needs than any of the other guys."

The men already on the team would, no doubt, be willing to do what they could, but we do not feel we should lay greater responsibility on them as they will have a full plate already.

The young man who would feel the Lord calling him to join the team as a traveling companion of this brother would also need to make application for the team, however we understand the somewhat different role he would have on the team. We would probably be arranging a motel room at each stopping place for these two brothers as few homes along the way would have wheelchair access bathrooms.

You can obviously see the wonderful possibilities. This would clearly open new doors for the gospel everywhere we would travel. It would be a tremendous asset in every community. However we need the Lord to show Himself strong on our behalf in this regard. And quickly. Orientation starts two weeks today!

So please pray. And if you (or someone you know) sees this as the Lord's will for them for the next six months, please call Jabe Nicholson at 616-540-6498 right away.

TWO: In addition, there is another brother "well reported of" by his brethren who is also eager to go. His challenge is that he has a schooling requirement in September that would keep him from joining. He is going to the responsible authority (probably today) to see if he can do this by
conference call, etc. Please pray that if it is the Lord's will for him to go, the authorities will grant this permission.

THREE: We also have one young man applying for a passport. Pray that the process will be expedited.

With many thanks for your intercessions. Miracles to follow.

Jabe, for the team
