Devotion: I told the ladies that yesterday I started as mentor for confirmation for my third year. There is a young lady in my group who is “on the fence” about believing in Jesus. We started our first session of confirmation talking about how we have to have an open mind and open heart in order to grow as a person. If you are willing to be open to listening to God, open to learning new things, open to accepting what God has to offer, you will grow as a person as well as in your faith journey.
Prayer requests: Changes taking place in Speedy’s life; adjustments for her children etc. Also, pray for Otis as she continues to grieve for the loss of her Mom.
