Karen, who teaches our adult Sunday School class, will be working in Nairobi, Kenya during the month of December. She will be using her special talents “working in an orphanage/school for 180 toddlers through teens, helping widows create saleable crafts, participating in training Kenyan adults for improved schools/child care/pastoral work with Rafiki academic and Bible study curricula, and assisting resident missionaries with the village’s needs.”
Our Sharers Class will miss Karen during the time she is serving in Nairobi; however, we will be praying for her. When we pray for others, we are participating in the work of Christ and interceding for others in prayer also forms our soul. When we pray for someone, we don’t preempt God. Before we even receive a request to pray for someone or some concern, God is there. However, when we pray, we become sharers in His work.
Hear me speedily, O Lord. . . .
Cause me to hear . . .
For I lift up my soul unto Thee.
Psalm 143:7, 8
