Many of you have been following our ministry to the Maryland political community for a long time. Thank you so much! Having your prayers and interest in the work is invaluable and encourages us to keep going even when the going gets tough.
There are many ladies that work in the General Assembly as legislators and as staffers. While I have met and ministered to many of these ladies, it would be a tremendous boost to the effectiveness of our work if my wife could come to the capitol with me occasionally. If you've met Tracy, you know she has a true heart for people, is engaging and friendly, and understands the immensity of the task in Annpolis.
We took a day last week and walked the halls of the House building together. While most members and staff are gone during the summer, we did get to see an administrator who helped with some arrangements we needed to address for future ministry. Praise the Lord!
As you pray this summer, can I make a new request I haven't made before? Would you pray that more funding would come in monthly so that we could make the transition to include Tracy more? The funds are needed to cover added family and ministry expenses.
If the Lord moves in your heart to become a financial partner with us, please contact me. I would love to share with you how we can reach the political arena together!
Thanks for your prayers and for reading these updates. May God bless you and your family, giving you joy in serving Him.
Brent Alderman, Maryland State Minister
