From the Pastor's Desk - June 2013

From the Pastor’s Desk - Dear LLBC family, I want to begin by saying thank you for allowing me to serve with the Oklahoma Baptist Disaster Relief team. You have allowed me to go and serve others away from our church in areas where people are really hurting. And thank you for praying. The Lord sustained me as I shared and prayed with families that have lost everything. One of the blessings that we have as Christians is being able to serve others. We were reminded one morning before going out into the field of Jesus’ words in Matthew 25, “When you have done it to the least of these, you have done it unto me.” My prayer for you is that you will continue to serve others and “not grow weary in doing good.”

I would also ask that you pray diligently for the ministries we have to youth and children these next four weeks.  Vacation Bible School begins this Sunday. In addition to teaching our own kids, our desire is to continue reaching out to families that we have made contact with through our ministry to Kerr Elementary and through our youth ministry (Jordan has been bringing the younger brothers and sisters of some of the youth that he is picking up on Sundays.) Would you stop now and pray for all of our workers in VBS, that they would demonstrate the love of Jesus. And if you have not already found a place of service during VBS would you just show up each night at 6:15 and love on the kids? They need to see what real Christians are like. And just by being here you are an encouragement to all of us.

Pray also for Falls Creek. Pray for Jordan who will be leading our youth. Pray for our sponsors (at this date Jordan and Cara, Martha Chavez, Cindy Brown and Jordan’s friend Jeremy) and our cooks (Gary Venable, and Ricky and Kathy Robison.) Pray for the youth….many who have never gone to any church camp and most who are not believers. Pray for changed lives. Pray that these kids will come back ready to grow in  Christ and be lighthouses for Christ in their neighborhoods.

We will again be feeding a World Changers team. These are youth who come to Tulsa to serve our community, often by putting the roof on someone’s home….and looking for opportunities to share the gospel message. Pray for Gary and his team as they prepare the meals. See if you can come one day to serve these kids and their sponsors…and come an pray for them while they are in our community.

Also pray for our Children’s Camp. Our sponsors are Martha Chavez, Christi Richmond and me. Pray for our group of kids. Most of them already attend LLBC….but many only because some of our families love them enough to pick them up each week and bring them for Sunday School and worship. Some have already made professions of faith. Others are yet to make them. Pray that the lives of all are impacted by the gospel and that they will return loving Jesus more and desirous to grow and serve Him.

June is an important month of ministry, which we could not do without you. Thank you for your prayers. Bro. Keith
