Thanks Giving

Thanksgiving… thanks, its what we’re to do!

As we write this prayer update, Lisa and I first want to give thanks to God for allowing us to be a part of this wonderful endeavor. After God…. We thank YOU. Each of you are such an encouragement and example to us! So to each of you we say thanks for being an “appointed counsel”….. for praising our Lord alongside us and for interceding for Global Advance.

And when he had taken counsel with the people, he appointed those who were to sing to the Lord and praise him in holy attire, as they went before the army, and say, “Give thanks to the Lord, for his steadfast love endures forever.” 2 Chronicles 20:21

Blessings and Happy Thanks Giving! John and Lisa

Prayer Points:


We need media support now that Andy has moved on. He created many templates, but we will need ongoing creative and technical development.

The Annual Global Advance Open House will be on Friday, December 30th. This is to allow GA partners/friends to come with year-end gifts and say hello.

Pray for vision and clarity as Jonathan and Ken determine what events will need to be added or eliminated in 2017. We ask You Holy Father for Your insight and wisdom for Your Kingdom purposes for 2017 to be made clear to these dedicated leaders. They only want to do what You desire, therefore please give them very clear direction in where to go and where not to go. In Jesus Name!
