Hello from Lisbon, Portugal!
Please pray for us as we have a series of meetings over the next few days with HeartCry supported pastors from Western Europe. In total, there are fifteen men from nine different countries present. Jeremy Walker is also here, and he and Anthony Mathenia are sharing the teaching/preaching responsibilities. Jeremy is a pastor in the UK (Maidenbower Baptist Church), and Anthony is a pastor in Virginia, USA (Christ Church – Radford) as well as a board member for HeartCry. Both of their sessions this afternoon were a blessing – which was evident in the discussion and prayer time after dinner.
Please pray especially for Jeremy and Anthony as they seek to encourage and exhort pastors from God’s Word in the coming days. Jeremy will be doing all the preaching tomorrow (Wednesday), and Anthony will do all of it on Thursday. We’ve sought to cram a lot into a small amount of time. Pray that the men would be refreshed and restored. Many of these men get no break (literally) throughout the year and this is a great opportunity for them to get fed spiritually for a change.
