For the last year and half, we have been gathering to pray that God would work in the city of Berkeley. We have prayed that He would strengthen the Christians and Churches in Berkeley. We have prayed over the strongholds that Satan has in the city. We have prayed that we would see the city as Jesus sees it and be empowered by the Holy Spirit to live God glorifying lives in the city.
Finally, we have moved to Berkeley and are on the ground here and already beginning to form relationships with neighbors, baristas at the coffee shop we frequent, and experiencing quite a bit of warfare. We didn’t expect this to be easy, but we are going to dig in and fight and we fully expect God to do great things here in Berkeley.
Well, this post is just to mix it up a bit and let you know that we are getting ready to hold our first informational meeting! We are still working on the time and location details, but wanted to give you all a heads up that it is in the near future.
Just because we are here in Berkeley now does not mean the “Air War” has ended! We must always pray! After the informational meeting, we’ll begin meeting weekly to fellowship, pray, and get to know each other. In the meantime please keep these few things in prayer.
• Pray that we are lead by the Holy Spirit as Jesus plants His church in Berkeley.
• Pray that the churches in Berkeley are strengthened.
• Pray that God provides us with a Worship Leader
• Pray that God provides an Administrative Pastor.
• Pray that God provides us with a Quickbooks genius!
I’m really really looking forward to meeting and getting to know you all! We’ve been praying for you for over a year and are super thankful for the friendships that will form over the next couple weeks!
Looking forward to it!
