M2S: LIFEBOAT Prayer Guide
The Ministry to Seafarers of the CRC
November Theme: Cared For
“So do not be afraid of them, for there is nothing concealed that will not be disclosed, or hidden that will not be made known. What I tell you in the dark, speak in the daylight; what is whispered in your ear, proclaim from the roofs. Do not be afraid of those who kill the body but cannot kill the soul. Rather, be afraid of the One who can destroy both soul and body in hell. Are not two sparrows sold for a penny? Yet not one of them will fall to the ground outside your Father’s care. And even the very hairs of your head are all numbered. So don’t be afraid; you are worth more than many sparrows."
-Matthew 10:26-31, NIV
In the midst of all God was doing at M2S, the October schedule brought members of our team to the Dominican Republic, Taiwan, and the United States! Through the busyness of the month, God was so faithful to provide for seafarers and for each of us—through His Spirit, through one another, and through incredible volunteers. God did, indeed, prove Himself trustworthy once again.
Please thank God for:
•OCT 3: A productive and encouraging Board meeting in Brockville. We welcomed Sonja, our newest board member!
•OCT 9: God working out the details to bring Patty and Daniel to the Dominican Republic and giving them a sweet time with the boys they sponsor there.
•OCT 17: Our wonderful volunteer Gerard, who stayed for about a week to go ship visiting while David and Michelle were in Taiwan.
•OCT 23: God helping Doni and Eleni navigate the port safely while ship visiting. God provided multiple opportunities for them to connect with a seafarer who is grieving the loss of his stillborn child.
•OCT 26: The opportunity for Patty to share information about M2S at a Will Clinic at First CRC (Montreal).
•OCT 27: Michelle, Father Andrew, and David's safe return from the ICMA conference in Taiwan and all they learned there! David was quite sick, so we are very thankful for God's protection over him.
•For Sue, who sewed more than 80 Christmas parcel bags for various churches!
•For the recovery of Cindy's dad, who is out of the hospital and doing much better.
•For God's provision through a $5000 donation towards a new van.
Thank you for praying!
