Handshakes and hugs

2017 05 02 - airportHandshakes and hugs and words of farewell echo across a small meeting center today in Greece, as Entrust staff say goodbye at the end of our global family gathering. Our All-Staff Conference concludes today. Some of will head home. Others plan to visit nearby countries – sites where they’ve ministered in the past – to encourage brothers and sisters in Christ. Some will linger for just a few more days of Greek history and sunshine.

Pray for each of us as we travel and process what God has shown us this past week, as we return to the rhythms of our usual ministries and as we interact with people along the way. May the Lord be glorified in and through each of us!

Once in a blue moon

2017 04 04 - blue moon

What happens only once every two or three years? A quick Google search reveals various art and church and U.N. conferences, and a nighttime phenomenon called a Blue Moon.

So, Entrust is right on schedule with Blue Moons and the U.N. We’re gathering in late April as a global ministry family for a week of fellowship, learning, sharpening, planning, playing, worship and fun at an event we (oh so creatively) called the All-Staff Conference (ASC). Read more at www.entrust4.org/201704SL.

Here are some ways you can pray for your Entrust staff member during this time:

1. Ask God to speak to him through formal and informal meetings
2. Ask God to give her fresh vision and zeal for ministry
3. Pray for God-ordained conversations throughout each day
4. Pray for sufficient funds for travel and expenses
5. ASK your staff member directly – how can I pray for you during this conference?
