    Praises:

    • Though this Session was especially challenging for our leaders, the Lord continued to bring out legislators to the Bible studies and the Lord blessed with our strongest attendance at the end of Session again this year.
    • We had a wonderful time with all the other state directors and our national team at Shepherd’s Conference and were encouraged and strengthened by the reports of how the Lord is working in each of the 18 states. You can see the team photo here. We especially rejoiced in the invitation by a native pastor, representing several churches, requesting help to develop our first international plant in Kenya, South Africa. Please pray for the Lord to bless the upcoming trip on October 17-24, 2011.
    • At the invitation of Congressman Randy Forbes, the Virginia Legislative Prayer Caucus will host for the first time a “Call to Prayer” Rally on April 6 from 9:30-11:00 AM at the Virginia State Capitol Portico. You are invited to come and be a part of this event focusing on prayer for our state and our leaders. For more information go to www.calltoprayervirginia.com.

    Prayer Requests:

    • That the Lord will graciously bless the upcoming Satellite Bible Studies as we go to our legislators in the metropolitan areas of Virginia.
    • That the Lord will grant the opportunity to preach in many churches in the summer and fall to strengthen God’s people in prayer for their leaders.
    • That the Lord may graciously heal Andrea Lohr, (the wife of Matt Lohr in the Governor’s cabinet), who has been battling cancer for several years. Further information is on Caring Bridge.

    Thank you so much for your faithful prayers. Rejoicing in His grace,

    David Andersen
    Virginia State Director
