Update on Rescue Mission in Wilkes-Barre

This is an update Phil Schultz sent out today. Please continue to be pray for the mission in general and this specific need.

Greetings in the Lord
We went before the Zoning Board last night in Wilkes-Barre and after lengthy discussion they voted 2 for and 2 against (a tie is not a win).


Pray Request Regarding the Rescue Mission

This is an email I received today (11.18)
We stand on the eve of not just an historical moment in the life of our ministry, but one for northeastern Pennsylvania. The Lord willing, we will soon join the 12 cities in Pa and the 300 cities across America in providing a residential program to the homeless. Please pray for me as I go before the Zoning Board in Wilkes-Barre at 4:30pm on Wednesday (11.19). Several of you have heard some of the testimonies of how God is using us to transform lives in Scranton- trust me, you haven't seen anything yet!

Please be praying for this zoning board hearing and for the ministries of the Wilkes-Barre and Scranton Rescue Missions, along with other Rescue Missions across America.


Life @ BBC&S

Today (11.18) I had an endocrinologist appointmet. I feel like I have spent a lot of time recently at appointments with our general doctor, the endocrinologist, podiatrist and dietician.

The great news is that my blood sugar level have dropped from upper 300s to mid/upper 100's. Please pray that with diet, exercise and medicine we would be able to get my sugar levels below 120.

For those of you who may not have heard, we have decided to extend our time here at BBC&S by a year. With my health and schedule we realized it was better to slow down than to push through at an overwhelming pace. It was a difficult decision but one we both have peace about.

Krista has a been enjoying being part of a Monday night Bible study on the Psalms. It is led by Joanna Arp, a woman who is an amazing Bible teacher and a great mentor to Krista.

Continue to pray for Krista as she balances family life with ministry to the girls in the dorm. She is also working on a grad class to keep up her teaching certification.

Joel is doing great in kindergarten. He loves school. His soccer season ended two weeks ago. Grandma and Grandpa were there for the last game. Joel is very proud of his medal.
One of Joel's AWANA teachers recently commented about his amazing ability to remember Bible verses. He is doing great with the weekly memory verses.

Josiah is the cutest 2 year old in Vibbard Hall. Everyone agrees. He loves singing, dancing and trying to keep up with his big brother. Josiah also has a good memory as well as a sensitive heart and will pray at meals (or in the car) for things he's heard about throughout the day. One of his regular prayers when David is at work or class is "God, Daddy come back, safe, my house."
