Prayer Requests:

1. Please continue to pray for Justin Lee's recovery. Please let the #JustinStrong wrist bands serve as a reminder to pray!!! On Wednesday, 05/20/15, doctors will be submitting a medical report that will determine whether Justin has made sufficient progress to stay within JH's Krieger Rehab Center or be relocated. Please pray that doctors will submit a progress report, which will allow Justin to stay at Krieger to continue his rehab. Please continue to pray and allow God to perform His miracle!!
2. Please pray for JG STM team to Peru. Pastor Philip and the team need your prayer and financial support.
3. If you are on the fence about coming back as a small group teacher, please pray that God will convict you. If He is calling you, please follow His calling! So many students love you and need you to guide and mentor them. 
Please forward prayer requests to me so I can forward to Lee, Hyeyeon jipsanim. She and other parents are diligently praying for you and your students.
