And here’s about gearing up:

1. Classes are over, but all of June is for exams and papers. Pray for students as they study hard, and for Jack and other staff as the correct stacks (digitally speaking) of student assignments.

2. The elder board of the Maastricht Church is now at full strength: 5 elders. The term of two elders expired, and only one continued. Two other elders were also appointed. The special ordination service will be June 7. Please pray for wisdom and unity of the new elder team as they plan for next season.

3. June 14 is our first baptism at our new location. One man will be baptized and share a clear testimony of salvation to all visitors. Pray also that some from our new neighborhood will visit the baptism.

We look forward to a more relaxed summer, after an incredibly full and busy year. Thanks for praying with us.

Here’s for more prayer requests.
