  • Brenda Ziska December 2016 Prayer Requests

    * On December 4th please be praying for the presidential election in Austria. The country is run by the Chancellor, Cabinet and Parliament. The President is the federal head of state of Austria. Though theoretically entrusted with great power by the Constitution of Austria, in practice the President is merely a ceremonial figurehead who acts mostly on the advice of the Chancellor and the Cabinet. The President of Austria is directly elected every six years by the people (all citizens over the age of 16). Norbert Hofer of the Freedom Party (FPÖ) - the far-right party will be going against Alexander Van der Bellen from the green party in a run-off election.

    * Continue to pray for the teenagers in the children´s home. We´re very happy to see a few of them coming to church, especially when we have some special activities right afterwards, like going to McDonald´s or to a fair that´s being put on in town.

  • Brenda Ziska November 2016 Prayer Requests

    * The Lord has blessed the Klosterneuburg fellowship with 5 children which is a good start for a Sunday school. We started having “family worship services” the Sunday after the Teenie Retreat. At that time all of the teens from the children´s home came to church. We were all thankful for your prayers in October, because 5 of the teens came to the family worship service in October. There was also a new family with 4 children.

    * Please pray for the family service we´ll be having on the 27th of November which will be the 1st Advent Sunday. The family services are shorter and more appropriate for children and young people. Pray that the young people at the home will develop a desire to come on their own to church. Pray also that we will again have visitors.

     

     

  • Brenda Ziska October 2016 Prayer Requests

    1. Thank you for praying for our new evangelistic Bible study that just started on Sept.12th. I ended up getting the flu, but David, my son, took my car and brought his friend to the study. Another young man came that was a part of Joe´s and my evangelistic study and was also a part of Jonathan´s pizza study. The next study will be October 10th . Please pray that the others that were once a part of Joe´s and Jonathan´s studies will again want to be a part of this study plus others that are seeking God. We´re excited about the possibilities.

    2. Continue to pray for the birthday party we´ll have for the children who were born in October from the children´s home. Pray that the children listen carefully and learn that God loves them from the Bible story. Praise God for one of the teenies who apparently has made a decision for Christ and has been acting differently since she came back from the teenie retreat. Thank you, Jesus.

    3. Please pray also for our church retreat from September 30th to October 2nd.

    Love,

    Brenda
