Thanks for your prayers and support! We want to give God the glory for how He continues to bless the growth of this ministry!
- Pastor Dwight had successful Back Surgery for relief from sciatic nerve problems on Sept. 13 (L4 and L5 decompression with fusion). He is healing slowly and encouraged after some complications. ! There is no sciatic pain when standing like before!
- Pastor Dwight and family were deeply moved by the many cards, phone calls, visits and meals people brought to us in since the surgery. Thank you everyone!
- Pastor Dwight was able to share with some folks in the hospital, the gospel and what God is doing in the prisons. One of my first nurses, was a Christian from Harvey, LA. She gave me her church contact info as they might be interested in using our lessons she said with their prison ministry.
- Praise God for our local reps like Steve McFarland (MO) and Bob & Lynna Schauer (MN) sharing in churches and prisons for PMA.
- God is answering prayers and seeing lives transformed like never before! On Sept. 15, our PMA reps, Bob and Lynna Schauer represented PMA at Red Wing prison- – Here is what they posted on my facebook, “The Red Wing Transition Fair went Great. Just over half of the boys signed up.(46). adults (9) the adult group was very small. A very blessed day for Both Bob And I!! Wonderful conversations.” Praise God! So that is 55 new students from last week.
- Pastor Dwight will have to wear a back brace for three months and cannot drive while wearing it so it will be a challenge to get around. Also the first month he cannot lift more than 10 lbs, then the second month nothing more than 20 lbs. which will also be a challenge to do. Pray for greater strength and energy.
- Pray for God to provide helpers to meet these new challenges.
- Please pray for Pastor Dwight’s wife, Darlene with a lot of added stress and responsibilities during this time.
- Pastor Dwight will have his first chance to share about PMA on Mon. 12 noon, Sept. 26 at Oak Grove Lutheran Church, 7045 Lyndale Ave. S. Minneapolis, MN.
- Pastor Dwight is very close to full time as PMA Director We just need $600 more per month designated for his monthly support. This will complete phase 2 of our 5 phases in our 10 year vision for Planting Churches in prisons.
- For more volunteers to help Mariana Selfors with the correcting of Spanish lessons to reach more Hispanics with the gospel!
- For God to call key leaders within the prisons to help distribute/correct lessons and plant prison churches.
- Pray for more churches to have a PMA Sunday in 2016!
