Prayer Mail

Dear partners in prayer,
This is our public prayer mail for August 12. 
This week's selective overview: 
Dates have been tentatively confirmed for the first ordinations in Belize in several years, in late September, as well as for the pre-ordination retreat (I may be serving in the role of Spiritual Director for the retreat), pending the final documents from the candidates.

Work continues for the preparation of upcoming course materials.

Preparation continues for "move week", all next week.  

I will continue to maintain a base of operations in the Diocese of Albany for some time to come. Therefore, Sunday visits to parishes in the Diocese of Albany continue after the move, and I have been asked to make a presentation at the upcoming mission conference in the Diocese of Albany.

Prayer requests:
1) Pray for the mission work in Belize, the translation of the online course work into Spanish for Belize and surrounding countries, and the on-going work of the Spanish version of the Book of Common Prayer for the Church in the Province of the West Indies. 

2) Pray for my part in the ordination process, as the ordination date gets closer.

3) Pray for my course preparation work for the next on-line course that I plan to teach, beginning August 30th and lasting to mid-October: "What God has been doing in Anglicanism" (Anglican Church History/Liturgy). 

4) Pray also for my upcoming mission conference presentation.
5) Pray for our transition to Manchester over the course of the next three weeks, and for Julie's transition to new responsibilities as staff hospital chaplain at two area hospitals. Pray for peace, effectiveness, love, joy, and creativity.

God bless you.
In Christ,
Shaw+, and on behalf of Julie+ and Lydia
