Cattle Congress outreach Sept 18-21

This prayer request comes from the Collins in Waterloo, Iowa who meet with the saints at Bethany Bible Chapel in Cedar Falls.
Please pray for the effort at the National Cattle Congress again this year. Cattle Congress is our local fair which will run Sept 18th through the 21st. We usually offer a baggie with tracts, a pen or magnet with a verse on them and a cookie. This year we are also including a card offering them individual Bible studies or small group Bible studies if they are uncomfortable going to an assembly building and have questions about the Bible.
As per usual when doing something for the Lord, Satan does his best to hinder. There have been typing errors that have to be corrected and other things that have to be attended to that take up valuable time in getting ready for this project. Our prayer is that hearts will be prepared to receive the message, and that there will be a response to the offer of Bible studies.
We are also praying that the Lord will give us the necessary freedom from Satanic meddling so we can compete this without further complications. We are also praying for needed help so that the booth can be manned effectively. We are preparing about 1500 baggies. We valued your prayer last year and would again appreciate you partnering with us in prayer for this outreach.

Hurricane Ike update - 9:00AM Saturday

Update on Jonathan & Sarah Lee -
Their home in Pearland, TX is due south of Houston, south of the outer by-pass. They lost power about 8:00PM Friday night -heavy storm winds started about 2:30AM til 6:00AM Saturday morning. They slept(?) in their closet. Still raining @ 8:00AM, as back of the eye wall passed over. They still had cell phone service this morning @ 8:00AM, but are trying to conserve battery life.
Jonathan's brother, Matthew & his new wife, Emily, evacuated their home at Clear Lake, TX, which is closer to the coast. Early reports on Clear Lake indicate widespread flooding, but no specific reports regarding Matthew's home.
Many of the believers who fellowship at Manvel Bible Chapel (also south of Houston, and where Jonathan & Matthew fellowship) evacuated, and several of the believers lived down near Galveston.
Thnak you all for your prayers - more to come as the storm passes through this afternoon.
Scott & Kathy Leach

Ron & Carrie Young

Ron & Carrie Young, Missionaries to Albania, were commended to the Lord's work by the assembly in Alamosa, CO in 1989. They have visited with us twice in the past, and we look forward to Ron's visit this month. He likely will be accompanied by one of his sons, and will be speaking both in the morning and evening meetings on September 21.

Regarding Albania, Wikipedia reports the following: "The totalitarian regime, which took control of Albania after World War II, suppressed religious observance and institutions and entirely banned religion to the point where Albania was officially declared to be the world's first atheist state. Although religious freedom has returned to Albania since the regime's change in 1992, the majority of Albanians today do not practice any religion whatsoever, but affilate themselves with one of the four traditional religions."  An obvious call to pray for the Lord's work there.
