We are unable to do what we do without prayer support from other believers. Thank you (times a million!) for taking the time to pray for us.
The Bookers’ Secret Society of Pray-ers & Cheerleaders
The primary way we link with our prayer team is through a secret (private) facebook group created for those who would like to be up-to-date with our most current and/or urgent prayer requests. We try not to overuse our ‘Secret Society’ group page, but it’s a great place to post something in real time (without waiting for a newsletter or blog post) if we need prayer right away that we don’t feel is appropriate to communicate broadly through social media. This small but committed group is so important to us. We consider them our encouragement team, most loyal advocates, and most dedicated intercessors. Please contact us via email or on facebook if you’d like to be a part of our ‘Secret Society’ prayer support team on facebook.
Prayer needs (updated September 2014):
Ongoing: Healing and grace in the wake of losing our baby. We need your prayers and friendship as we navigate loss for the second year in a row.
Urgent: Approval of Ryan’s visa extension. We need to stay until October to finish our work in Bend and work on the preparations necessary for moving to Sydney.
Urgent & Ongoing: Please pray for Ryan and Adriel as we feel we’re staring at giants in the form of financial needs. Pray that we’d be strengthened in our faith as we continue to move forward with what we believe is right in God, even when it doesn’t all make sense “on paper.”
Coming up: Please pray for us (don’t forget the boys!) and for Adriel’s parents (Scott and Gwen) as we prepare to make the transition back to Australia. We have enjoyed this time together immensely during our Radical Sabbatical and it will be HARD to say goodbye.
Coming up: We’d appreciate prayer for finding the right house or apartment near YWAM Wollongong that will suit our family during our time between sabbatical and launching into Sydney, as well as the finances to be able to secure the rental (most likely in November). We’ll need first and last month’s rent plus deposits and it all adds up quickly! We’re also considering the option of moving into a caravan (camper) for 6-10 months while we plan and save and prepare to launch into inner Sydney. Pray that we’d have wisdom in our decision-making and for provision of the right house/apartment/caravan when it’s time!
Ongoing: Adriel’s writing endeavors, the right opportunities, and wisdom and discernment to recognize them.
Ongoing: New partners to join our support team. We’re looking for monthly financial supporters as well as regular prayer supporters.
