Today I want to do my Prayer Partners letter a little differently than my in normal style. You will notice a picture that is attached this week. Meet the Joseph and Aaren A. Gutierrez Family.
Joseph is our New Youth Pastor. We will be welcoming them next week to Oasis Church after a year of praying, evaluating and interviewing candidates. While we had 200 inquiries we didn’t just want someone, or just anyone but the ONE God has for our ONE youth!
Joseph and his family are the ones God has chosen for our Oasis youth for this next season. We are thrilled. You will get to meet them next week and will fall in love with them.
Ok, this is not an announcement but a call to prayer. As my Prayer Partners, I am asking you to please, lift them up every time their faces come to your thoughts this week.
They left today from Arizona to make the long drive here across country.
Pray for their safety and for God’s comfort and grace as they make the transition as our newest Oasis Family.
May I share something that has been heavy on our staff’s heart and the reason why we are praying for more than just a safe trip? We are praying for them in more than just this way since Joseph leaves behind a mom who has waged a valiant fight against cancer and is in hospice care in Arizona. Also please pray for him and Aaren since they are leaving behind an infant whom they lost at childbirth this past year in Arizona as well. You can imagine the pain and emotions that go with that. Please lift them up in prayer. This young couple will be easy to love and we are looking forward to having them on our team and as part of our Oasis Family.
So, as you pray over our Prayer Digest each day please remember the Joseph Gutierrez Family in your prayers.
Have a great week!
Oasis Church of South Florida.
