Please pray for complete healing for Adria, for her pain to be greatly reduced, and for wisdom and guidance for her doctors and caregivers. Pray also for Adria’s parents, Norman and Shelley (from Plum Coulee), that they will be free of illness so that they can be with her in hospital, for rest and for strength.
~ Pray for Kelly Fehr. She has been in Boundary Trails for the past 3 weeks with symptoms of pain as well as nausea. She has undergone many tests, which have come back negative. Pray that God would grant peace and relief from pain, as well as answers as to what is wrong and how to treat it. Pray for her parents and family as they are busy with harvest and work and are unable to be with her all the time while she is in hospital.

BMC Mexico Missions Trip 2018-2019:
Dates: December 28-January 6 Cost: $1500-2000 Value: Priceless
Signup Deadline: September 23rd
Please pray and consider joining the missions team headed to San Carlos, Mexico over the Christmas break. We are looking for people who are willing to lend their skills and abilities in order to encourage various ministries in Mexico. There will be opportunity to do some painting, woodworking and carpentry, yard maintenance and clean up, Children’s ministry, perhaps some evangelism and handing out food hampers, as well as spending some time visiting with and encouraging the staff at Centro Educativo Cristiano and a few other local ministries. We plan to possibly spend some time in the community of Santa Maria where we poured a concrete pad during our last visit in order to help them with continuing work on their church building, as well as Arizpe in the Mountains where Benny who came to speak with us last summer is located. This will be a trip worth more than the money you pay to go. Pray about whether the Lord is asking you to be a part of this mission.
Contact Pastor Gerry Giesbrecht with any questions.
~ Please check the Lost & Found for your items. If you have items there, please take them home. All items left behind will be sent to MCC.

WE NEED LEADERS: We are looking to fill 2 female and 1 male youth leader spots for this upcoming fall youth season. Ideally it would be great to have a married couple and another woman come on board. Age is no limit for volunteering with youth. They have lots of energy; don’t feel like you need to keep up with them. If you love God and want to see youth come to know and love God. Gerry would love to talk to you! And if you think that you’re not the right fit for this, but know someone who would be amazing at it, tap them on the shoulder and let Gerry know to contact them. Feel free to call or text him about what it might look like for you to be involved. His cell number is 204-362-7262.
