    The recent election brought about a lot of changes. That is certainly true here in West Virginia. Such transition provides both challenges and opportunities - for the leaders involved and for our ministry in the capitol and around the state. Pray for our leaders and for our ministry as we face these challenges and opportunities in the coming months.

    • Pray for Governor Manchin as he makes the transition to the U.S. Senate next week.
    • Pray for the transition in the West Virginia Governor’s office. This change will affect us in some practical ways as leaders with whom we have developed strong relationships either move on or transition to different offices. This will impact such things as scheduling conference rooms and having leaders who sponsor and promote our meetings.
    • There will be 21 new legislators serving in Charleston beginning in January. Pray as we seek to introduce them to our ministry and that we will have opportunity to serve and minister to them in the coming year. You can find a list of the new legislators HERE.

    One thing that has not changed is our ongoing ministry through Bible studies in the capitol. This month's interim Bible studies will be held on Tuesday, November 16. We will be finishing up our series on Psalm 119 with a study entitled “Final Thoughts on Treasuring God’s Word”. You can read or download a copy of our Bible study HERE. Pray that God will work in the hearts of legislators and elected officials to gain a love and affection for God and His Word as we seek to point them to the glory of Jesus Christ and the overwhelming grace of the gospel.
