I know what you're thinking: "But Ariel, today is Thursday!"
Yes I know. I didn't have a chance to post an update yesterday, so I'm doing it today. It's my blog, I can do that if I want to. =)
So here's an update on the Northeast campus:
// Last Wednesday (the 4th), the El Paso Baptist Association's church planting committee met and approved a recommendation to help fund our campus. On Monday the 9th, we hosted the EPBA's Executive Board meeting at the DSC East campus and I was introduced as the NE campus pastor.
// After the Exec. Board Meeting on Monday night, I had several pastors from the Northeast come up and encourage me about the work we're doing. That's good because I was concerned that there might be some territorialism, but it seems like we have at least 3 pastors with us now. Praise God for that!
Here are some ways you can pray for the Northeast campus this week:
1. Pray for my meeting with the principal at Nixon Elementary on Tuesday morning and more than anything, pray that God will show us where to meet and give us favor and open doors with the school administration and school district officials.
2. Pray for me as I'm meeting today with some people from the local and statewide Baptist conventions to talk about their financial support for our campus.
3. Pray for me as I seek to meet with more pastors to let them know what we're doing and see how we might be able to partner with other churches out in the Northeast.
4. Pray for God to bring to our team a Kids' Ministry Director. We don't want just someone who likes kids, but someone who is called to kids' ministry so please pray for this urgent need.
