This week is the 2013 Southern Baptist Convention in Houston, TX. We have a team of BCM students, including Tennessee students as well as others from partner states, working as a team to register Messengers to the Convention. Pray for the efforts of the team as well as for the ministry of the Convention in Houston.
Send TN Missions also has a team of students serving in Cincinnati, OH, this week. The team will be doing various ministry service projects in the Greater Cincinnati area. Pray for them as they provide for the needs of the people they encounter through food & clothing ministries as well as other areas.
Continue to pray this week for the students serving throughout Tennessee and around the world! Pray for their strength of body, mind and spirit as they seek to fulfill God’s call.

Prayer requests for you or your ministry:
Our family is going through a huge transition this summer and fall. Our oldest is graduating from college and looking for a job (she’s a criminal justice major and a hard worker–let me know if you are looking for someone to work for you). Also, our middle daughter is graduating from high school and planning to attend TN Tech in the fall. This will leave my wife and I with our youngest daughter. She will be lonely without the other sisters around.
