우리 모두 열심히 8th street community church와 Andy Kim을 위해 기도해야겠습니다.


Dear friends and partners in the gospel:

 


We are in the last week of our six week long ESPM (Eighth Street PeaceMakers) academic summer camp.
This Thursday at 6:30 pm, we will hold Parent Night, where we will share the gospel through skits, songs,
and dance.  Please, pray for family and friends to join us and to take to heart what our Lord Jesus requires of
them.  Pray for our teen staff.


Saturday, August 13th, there will be a memorial service/celebration of the many people that have died in the
neighborhood of 8th and Butler Sts.  This event is being organized by Ms. Anne who lives across the street.
According to her, there will be much publicity due to the history of this drug corner.  Pray for 8th Street Church
to humbly re(present) Jesus Christ and His mission during this event.  This will take place of the summer camp's
usual closing ceremonies.


We are grateful to Spirit and Truth Fellowship and the church planting coalition who have granted 8th Street
funds to help replace and repair the setback suffered from the break-in of Butler Street Community Center.  A
brand new 18000 btu air conditioner, some valuable power tools, and the copper pipes had been stolen.  Pray
for the neighborhood to rally behind the community center during this setback.


Butler Street Community Center is about 70% completed.  We are grateful to all the support we have received
in the past from folks like you.  Please, pray for us to resume work so that the building will be 100% complete
in a timely manner.


Pray for our 1000 Doors evangelism effort.  The team from the Summer Medical Institute (SMI) have given us a
great start in simply knocking on doors and having conversations.


Pray for Robert who lost a dear friend, i.e. a mother figure, yesterday.  Pray for Antoine and Demetrius whose
grandmother passed away.  Her funeral was today. Antoine and Demetrius have been part of our after-school
program and summer camp.

Christ's peace to you,
