Urgent Prayer Request

Nik Franks is my pastoral intern. last night Lindsay, his wife had an emergency c-section and delivered Pierce at 24 weeks, 1 lb. 8 ounces. Lindsay is doing well but Pierce is obviously is acutely premature and breathing on with a special ventilator. Please pray.

Yesterday I also canvassed 400 homes around Lake Wylie Elementary for our largest outreach so far for Advent Church. We are having a Resurrection Easter Egg hunt. I met a number of kids as they got off their buses and gave them an invite card. At the same time the 5th grade parents are having a huge garage sale in the school parking lot - Pray for many divine appointments. Jessica Coulter, our children's director, will be sharing the resurrection story before the hunt.

Additionally, due to outside support waning, I have started "tent-making", by working at a local Lowe's store 6 AM to 2 PM. This is my third week. Pray for endurance and for the many that have approached me at work to talk about spiritual things. Even the Human Resources lady has given my name to others going through crisis.

I believe God has great pans for Advent Church, but like Pierce we need your prayers. Please pray now!
