October 2017 - Week 1

Sunday 1 Praise God for the new churches and volunteers offering respite care to families wearied from the daily challenges of living with a disability.

Friday 6 Joni and Friends Pennsylvania: Pray for the couples who will attend tomorrow’s Marriage Retreat in Souderton, PA. May they feel strengthened and renewed in their relationship with one another and their Creator.
