2) Learning to Lead Prayer Days and Retreats —

Team Expansion’s Prayer Coordinator learned more about leading prayer days and retreats when she attended a recent conference led by Dr. Evelyn Davis, Training Consultant for SIL International (partner with Wycliffe Bible Translators). Betty came home with the confidence and material to lead prayers days and retreats on numerous prayer and reflection topics. She experienced the leading of such events as she worked with other attendees in small groups to practice what they experienced under the facilitation of Dr. Davis and others who assisted in the training.

8) Special Close-up on Soccer-related Ministries –

For example, the black on the soccer ball represents sin, and white after our sins have been forgiven.
