MISSIONARY OF THE WEEK Adam & Trish (Emily, Logan, Jeremiah) serving with Pioneers in Ontario Pray for: The family as they continue to adjust to life in Ontario (grace to know how to thrive during this season); Trish to grow in her walk with Jesus as she balances responsibilities in the midst of COVID-19 (most of her tasks are done at home which can be draining for an extrovert); Adam to depend on God for wisdom, vision and discernment as his leadership position has a direct impact on new missionaries and the spread of the gospel; Emily, Logan and Jeremiah to grow in their love and knowledge of Jesus and to be firmly rooted in Him while attending public school; Jeremiah in particular as he struggles with being in Ontario; He also is very aware that his life has been very different than his classmates who mostly haven’t even left Canada before. Pray that he will look to God as he wrestles through the deep things in his heart and that he will build quality friendships in Ontario.
