I hope you all had a wonderful Easter weekend. Praise God, Jesus is risen indeed!
I just wanted to share a few updates and prayer requests for the Keywi Card project:
Please pray for the trade show in Atlanta, Georgia!
This June 22-25, Keywi Cards will be exhibiting at the International Christian Retail Show in Atlanta, Georgia (http://christianretailshow.
com/). Nearly every major Christian bookstore retailer and distributor will be there along with many well-know Christian authors and speakers. As you can imagine, preparations for this show are quite extensive and I have often felt stressed and overwhelmed over the last few weeks. I could really use prayer for balance, guidance, wisdom, and time management. There are so many things that still need to be accomplished in a short period of time. I'm making a catalog, designing hang tags and UPC labels, sourcing displays for the cards, designing and creating a booth for the show, updating my website and blog, and creating new flashcards and skins. In addition, I'm still developing and improving the Keywi cards themselves to be more cost effective and locally manufactured. Prayer over every part of this process would be much appreciated! I trust God's will and plan over all of this. I know He cares about every detail and He is with me in each step. At the same time, I know that I can't do any of this alone. Your prayer and support are so important to me!
* 100 Psalm 91 Keywis were sent to Operation Soldier Care, the ministry of the First Baptist Church of Naples, Florida. Please pray for the troops who will receive these Keywis and for God's word to truly take root in their hearts.
*Just last week, Chip Ingram spoke at my local church on spiritual warfare. He emphasized the importance of scripture memory. Even though I hadn't planned on it in advance, I gave him four Keywis after the service and explained my project to him, asking if he might be interested in writing a set of verses to memorize. He was very positive about the idea and I'm told he shared it in the following service as well as with some pastors and leaders over lunch. Whatever develops, please pray for God's will and purpose in this.
Ongoing Prayer Requests: Please pray over each person who has or who will receive a Keywi Bible verse set.
*Ask God to "till up the soil" of their hearts to receive His word for lasting fruitfulness (Matthew 13:3-9 and John 15:4,5,16). Also pray for the Holy Spirit to stir up an insatiable hunger for God's Word and to illuminate its meaning for repentance, application, and heart regeneration.
*Please continue to pray for each soldier touched by the Psalm 91 Keywi project. Pray for their spiritual and physical protection, especially according to each verse of Psalm 91
Thank you all so much again for lifting up these requests to our gracious and loving Father! I am so grateful for your prayers and I plan to continue to keep you updated as this project moves forward.
