Jimmie Hale Mission
- Please pray that the Mission will be a beacon of hope and a source of strength to those that come our way.
- Pray that we provide encouragement and blessing to those who are hurting and struggling.
- Pray that the mission will be in the center of God’s will and that we will be submissive to Him and sensitive to His leading.
- Pray that our clients will see the love of Christ through us and be open to God’s working in their lives.
- Please pray that our priority will always be to minister to the spiritual and physical needs of the poor and hurting in Jesus’ name.
- Pray for all those affected by the recent Hurricanes and flooding.
- Pray for the disaster relief organizations who are coordinating ministry and relief efforts.
- Pray for the health and safety of all the volunteers who are serving in various capacities.
- The Alabama Baptist mobile airlift kitchen has been deployed to either Puerto Rico or the Caribbean Island of St. Croix. Pray it will arrive safely and expediently. Also, pray those trained to run this kitchen will be able to deploy soon.
- Praise the Lord! There have been over 600 Alabama Baptist volunteers trained over the last month for Disaster Relief.
- Joie: Joie has been suffering from back pain for quite some time. Please pray that Jamie and Joie are able to identify the cause so that she will have relief.
- Noah and Isaac: As the boys move up in grade, homeschooling becomes more of a challenge. Please pray that Jamie and Joie would be wise about helping them develop the study habits that are best for them and that will help them as they go on to university.
- Armenia trip (March 23 – April 1): Please pray for a team leader and a team (max 10 people) to distribute SD cards containing the Bible and other resources to Central Asians traveling outside their home country for vacation. This will be the fifth year our church has done this.
