One of our biggest ministry events of the year starts today. I wanted to reach out to you and ask for prayer this weekend. At 4:30 today, 150 or our Fishers area students will be loading busses and heading to Louisville, KY for our annual FASTBREAK conference.
The weekend will be full of talks from great speakers, a great band, small group discussions, service opportunities, and space to have a lot of one-on-one conversations with students.
Please be praying for God to move mightily this year. We have a number of people coming who do not know God and a lot of students who are Christians in name but are not really owning their faith. Pray that God would work through this weekend to transform their lives. Here are some prayer points that can help you pray more specifically...
Some specific things to be praying for include...
- Pray for our 20 college volunteers (most of them are our former students) that God would give them, energy, focus, and wisdom in their conversations with students
- Pray for our main speaker, Dwayne Walton, that God would speak through him (especially Saturday morning when he presents the Gospel)
- Pray against the relational drama that often happens at these conferences and distracts students from God's voice
- Pray for a few students by name... Jayden, Cameron, Destiny and TJ. They are a few of the students who don't yet have a relationship with God that we are praying for.
Thank you so much for your prayers. We have put a lot of work into recruiting and preparing for this conference, but none of it means anything unless God chooses to move here. Please take some time this weekend to intercede for these students who desperately need to know Jesus.

PSS - I (Mark) am at the conference but Dawn and the kids are home with Dawn's parents. Dawn is still healing from her surgeries and her parents came in to help out while I'm gone. Please pray for continued healing for her body and for things to go well at home while I'm gone. Thank you!
