The new 2011 Maryland General Assembly has been sworn in and the busy days of the 90-day legislative session are upon us! Thanks for your interest in our ministry and for your prayers. Below are some items for prayer.

  • Our Bible studies have started and expanded this year. Pray for growth and fruit as I meet with staffers each Monday and legislators twice each Thursday for our times in the book of John. Pray for good times of study and writing of the study notes which are sent out by email and hand-delivered to the offices each week.
  • There are about 30 new legislators who were elected last November. I need to meet them and their staffers, so pray for good opportunities and open schedule times for these introductions.
  • Many have already been invited to our Pastors' and Partners' Commission to the Capitol on Thursday, February 24. This is a day we set aside for breakfast, fellowship, music, prayer with legislators and a challenge from God's Word. Our speaker this year is Tim Webster, lead pastor at Uniontown Bible Church in Union Bridge. Anyone who is interested in or wants more information about the work of Capitol Commission Maryland is welcome. For more details and access to the event brochure and registration form, click here.

Thank you again for remembering us during these hectic months. There are many great stories to share with you, so you can be sure that your prayers and support are resulting in open doors to share the love of Christ in the political arena. God bless and I'll be in touch.
