Hey everyone,


Dear Directors and Coordinators,

We are facing an unusual situation this year regarding CYIA in that we still do not have a Praise/Worship leader for training camp.  Would you please be in prayer about this, as well as get the word out to your respective prayer groups? 

The Praise/Worship leader would not need their own musicians or even gear.  John Higginbotham (Lake of the Woods Church) would be providing the gear and musicians.  The Praise/Worship leader would be responsible for song selection, powerpoint slides for songs, leading the practice times (5:30-6:15, Mon. – Thurs.), and leading the praise and worship time each evening (Sun. – Thurs., roughly 30 minutes, or around 5 to 6 songs per session).

In God’s grip,

Ray Seto

Director of CYIA Training School

Prayer update:

Suzi’s second cataract surgery was a success.

Stephanie Foley: Water leak and mold issue is pretty much complete. Everyone, thank you for your prayers.

“ And not only so, but we also joy in God through our Lord Jesus Christ, by whom we have now received the atonement.” (Romans 5:11)

 “Jesus said to him, I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except thru me.” (John 14:6) Jesus speaking to Thomas.

 What a joy it is to have a relationship with the Father, because of what Jesus Christ did on the cross (Covered our sins)!

 Yours in Christ,
