Wyane and Dianna Penner were with us today, so we got to hear a little bit about their situation waiting for a visa from the South African consulate, so please keep them in your prayers.
And Pastor Jerry was present and felt well enough to give us a short update, so please keep him and Karen in your prayers, too!
Pastor Sam brought the message this morning, and he spoke out of John 17 about Jesus' High Priestly Prayer. Jesus is the most complete picture we have of the ideal prayer partner. In this prayer, we see Jesus' deep relationship with His Father, and Jesus' desire to be present with Him again. And Jesus knew His mission was almost complete and that He would be returning to His Father, so he prayed for His disciples (and the rest of us who believe based on the disciples' testimonies!).
If you would like the sermon PowerPoint notes, please let me know and I can send you either the original .PPTX file, or I can convert it to an Adobe .PDF.
