Last week, two of my Capitol Commission teammates, Matt Barnes (Indiana) and Shaun Lewis (Illinois), flew to Washington D.C. to meet with several of their congressmen and staffers. Since I’m so close by, they let me tag along. The result was a God-blessed three days of seeing His hand work in miraculous ways to put us in right places at the right times. What an encouragement it was to fellowship with these guys and minister alongside them.
I was able to meet with my West Virginia representative and one of her aides as well as the Chief-of- Staff for a Maryland congressman. A North Carolina congresswoman who is a good friend of our ministry graciously took us with her into the Capitol and helped us contact some of her colleagues outside the cloak room where they gather between votes. There were many opportunities to introduce ourselves for the first time to some of these members of Congress as well as follow-up for Matt and Shaun for several they already knew. Praise the Lord with us for a fruitful trip!
In this next month, we’re looking forward to continuing our Bible studies for the legislative aides each Tuesday. Also, the upcoming Missions Conference with our friends at Wakefield Valley Bible Church in New Windsor, MD will be a great time of teaching and challenge, I’m sure.
Also, please pray for our Election Eve Prayer Walk scheduled for Monday, November 1. This will be an evening focused on prayer for our leaders’ spiritual lives, for the election the next day and for our nation as a whole. We also hope there will be some attend who may not know much about Capitol Commission Maryland so we can share our work with them. Pastors and churches are being contacted now and we would love to see many participate with us that night!
Your prayers and support keep us going! Thank you for standing with us.
State Director, Maryland
