New Hampshire Speaking

We're back on the road again, this time for a return trip to a Spiritual Retreat in New Hampshire. This week, Wednesday, Thursday and Friday Dale and I will speak six times to a group of 50 high schoolers, to kick of their spiritual lives for the school year.

This is our second time speaking to this group, some of the seniors remembered our talks from four years ago. Their coming up to us, within the first few hours of our arrival and reminding us of what they had still remembered and continued practicing encouraged us to pour our energy into these next few days with them.

Dale speaks once more tonight on the power and uniqueness of Jesus in healing the paralyzed man. Tomorrow morning I speak on God and brokeness. Then Dale and I speak Thursday evening, Friday morning and Friday evening. If you would be willing to commit time to praying for one of these events, we will be greater emboldened and strengthened.

Specifically we'd like prayer for
  1. Jonalyn's health as she is 4 months pregnant now... (baby Fincher due Feb 25, 2010--HOORAY!) and feeling some residue nausea from her first trimester. Pray for her strength and memory to communicate the important ideas tomorrow morning.
  2. Dale to have courage to speak boldly as this event is a very conservative audience and he wants to stay focused on speaking Jesus' freedom and showing the teens that God cares about their questions.
We have a very busy fall coming up and with expecting a little one and learning to continue relying of Jesus to give us strength, we know we need to remember Jesus' power surrounds us.

Thank you for your prayers!
