Prayer Mail

Dear partners in prayer,
This is a public prayer mail for April 8. 
This week's selective overview: 
Highlights of the week: attending Fr. Everett Fullam's memorial service at St. Paul's in Darien. Awesome. It was a blessed time, and in real-time events during the sermon, there were all the major parts of the vision that I had at the priests' retreat in the Diocese of Albany in the Fall. I suspect God will be doing something. Genesis 41:32 comes to mind. Please keep this in prayer.

We are discerning what has come to me in prayer. My immediate interpretation is that our online ministry is emphasizing the word "global" more. It is already global; but with possible changes coming in the next few months, we are making the scope more obvious by adding the world "global" in front of "Online Anglican Theological College program", so that now the name reads "Global Online Anglican Theological College program." This around-the-world emphasis has the potential to make a difference in more countries. Please keep this in prayer.

Your prayers and continued support are very important for what we do to make a difference. 
Prayer requests:

1) Pray that Jesus would be glorified with the words of our mouths, the meditations of our hearts, and that we would make a difference. I preach on Palm Sunday. Julie preaches on Maundy Thursday. 

2) Pray for our parish visitation schedule.

3) Pray for the work I will be doing for the Bishop of Belize this week (with regards to preparing materials for the parishes during vocation-month in Easter season).
4) Pray for next mission trip in May, and for what Bishop Philip has asked me to do in preparation for that trip.  

5) Pray for the upcoming changes that need to be made to the Web pages, the proposed new Spanish direction of our program materials - work to begin in May, moving courses along, and for students and faculty.

6) Pray for the people to be ordained (clergy) or licensed (lay people) soon in Belize.
In Christ,
Shaw+, and on behalf of Julie+ 
I pray for you, everyday.
