Prayer Requests for Volleyball Camp 2017

Tickets are purchased, T-Shirts are on order, and the Summer Volleyball Camp team is raring to go! We are less than a month from a 4:30 am trip to PDX to launch Suburban’s volleyball team on their trip to Riga.

Our team leaves here on Thursday, June 15 and arrives in Riga on Friday, June 16. Volleyball Camp begins on Monday, June 19 and continues through Thursday, June 22. Our team arrives home in split shifts — Erik returns on Saturday, June 24 and the rest of the group returns on Tuesday, June 27 — the same day they leave Riga, but 24 hours later — go figure!

We are dreaming together with Matthews Church of kid’s lives touched and growing in the knowledge of Jesus and in the knowledge of who they are — of dreams and aspirations for lives lived well in Christ. So to that end, would you please pray with us?

  • Pray for the final preparation details to fall into place in a way that gives glory to God
  • Pray for travel mercies for our team and opportunities to connect even in the journey
  • Pray that our technology will work well so the team can keep us updated throughout this trip
  • Pray that the team meshes well and that each will get to exercise their gifts to the benefit of the whole
  • Pray for ever-deepening relationships and that through these relationships God will reveal His further purposes
  • Pray for Erik as he sits down with various leaders and members of Matthews Church to hear and capture the church’s history so that he can create our gift to Matthews – a timeline of their 150 years of serving God as Matthews Church
  • Pray for FUN!!!!
