Morrell Update March 2017

Dear Senders,
    Thank you for your faithfulness in praying for us.  This past month we have been on the run. Beginning with family camp the first part of January, Conference in Chile the last part of the month and when we got back we left for Teen Camp the first week in February.
    There were aproximately 60 teens.  The phrase that we kept hearing throughout the week was “If he had chosen differently.” We looked at the kings of Israel and the poor choices that the had made and used the proverbs as application for making wise choices in life. Please pray that God would continue to work in the hearts of the young people to make wise choices. James helped with the cleaning crew and with organizing the games.  His days were very full, but, he was able to squeeze in a a few soccer games.  I especially enjoyed watching him play.  🙂
    This time coming home we brought back with us supplies for the men’s retreat in May.  With the completion of the first cabin complex (large enough for 60 people) getting closer, we decided to schedule the retreat with the anticipation that God is going to allow us to complete it. It’s exciting to begin the transition to use our own facility verses renting one.  Pray that the cabins will be ready for the Men’s retreat in May!
        Part of the preparations for camp starting and the first event being the Men’s retreat we will be needing to purchase some items for the kitchen and housing.  Please pray that we will find what we need to outfit the kitchen for cooking/serving and bedding.
     This spring we will be welcoming several who are coming to serve at camp for a time to help complete the first cabin complex and make beds to fill them.  Pray for safety in travels and for their preparations.  
    This week we have been ministering to young people in our church through the VBS ministry (yes…VBS, it is summer here!) The Theme is The Kingdom of God. Please pray for the young people as they learn from God’s Word and His love. Also please be in prayer Friday night as we have invited all the parents to come and participate also.
    Thank you for your part in the ministry here in Argentina.  We trust that the Lord will bless you as you faithfully serve Him where you are.
Resting in Christ,
James and Donelle Morrell
