Thanksgiving for the inmates, chaplains, volunteers, developers, and coordinator that we work with in the prisons. Pray for protection, spiritual growth, and faithfulness to the Bible and the gospel.
Pray for national coordinators in the Spanish-speaking world as they reorganize their study groups.
Prayer that the LORD will raise up full time workers for both the prison ministry as well as with Hispanic ministries.
We mourn the loss of several MINTS teachers and students due to COVID-19.

February 21, 2021 Rev. Brian Cochran is a URCNA church-planter in Regina, SK.
Give thanks to God that in the midst of the government restrictions due to COVID-19 we can still gather in groups of 30 for corporate worship. For a few months now we have been hosting three in-person services that consistently fill up with 90 people total (about 2/3 members and 1/3 regular visitors).
Thank God for all the visitors we've been having and pray that they would grow in Christ through our Redeemer Basic Training (membership class) and become members of our church. Thank God for the growth we've also had through covenant children lately.
Pray that God would strengthen our pastor, two elders and deacon to continue to serve Christ's church faithfully in their callings as office-bearers during these difficult times. Pray that God would raise up more gifted and qualified men to serve as elders and deacons.
February 28, 2021 Pastor Ruben Sernas is a URNCA church-planter in Chicago Heights, Il.
Praise God for our new visitors. We are thankful to see new faces join us for worship. We pray that they will join our church and grow in the grace and knowledge of our Lord Jesus.
Pray for a permanent facility in Chicago Heights. For the past several years, we have met at the First Presbyterian Church in Chicago Heights, but they have been closed since early March 2020. We are currently meeting at Lynwood URC (the closest URC to El Pacto) on Sunday afternoons. Please pray we can find a location in Chicago Heights.
Pray for the Lord's blessings upon our outreach efforts. We have offered a virtual English class since the summer. We pray our Bible Study resumes once restrictions are lifted. We would like to plan a community dinner for the summer. Please pray for the advancement of God's kingdom in Chicago Heights.
