Tornado, New Life and Prayer Requests.

There was a tornado yesterday in Auckland that claimed the life of one man and injured 15 others. This morning I found out that it had come within about 6 miles from Laidlaw just before it died out. What a day.



I would like to take a moment to welcome in baby Logan French to the world: Logan French: born May 2nd, 2011, 9:33pm.  4 lbs. 12.8oz, 17.5 in.  (7.5 wks early)

Tiff Manning is now an Auntie, but please remember baby Logan in your prayers today as he will be in the NICU until his actual due date (most likely).

...and if you could please pray for two new ventures at Excel and Laidlaw. The 'Intentional Eating' team is being formed, seeking to engage Henderson with Christ. Pray for opportunities for the teams to share/experience Christ. This launches next week, pray that God would guide myself and give me the imagination and vision to stir the team.

With Excel,  today was the first day of a new weekly prayer group called (semi-officially) Pajama Prayer Party with Piper, at 7am on Wednesdays. I can't think of any time like this outside of Firwood (camp) where I live in such a close proximity with others. Pray that God uses me and transforms this group as we journey in community life together.
