Details: Thank God that Pathways sent nine students to the Youth For Christ summer day camp and four of those students indicated they made a first time decision for Jesus! Pray that they can encourage these young believers in their faith and that they continue to trust Jesus and become more complete and mature in him. Praise God for the support of their volunteers. Pray that the Lord would bring the right additional volunteers to come alongside their staff to fill urgent needs in the men’s program. Thank God for continuing to send women and children to Laura’s Home who are seeking a better relationship with Jesus along with safety and security for themselves and their children. Pray for complete healing for two residents (a woman and a baby) at Laura's Home who are having serious medical issues. Netherlands (Europe). Population: 17,142,910 Believers: 4.3%. Christianity in the Netherlands seems to have hit rock bottom. Less than 20% attend church with any regularity—the lowest figure in centuries. Possibly 65% of Dutch claim no affiliation with a church. Half of the nation’s church buildings have been destroyed or converted for other purposes, such as bars and mosques. The Church has effectively withdrawn from engaging in the public sphere, but many think that hedonism and secular materialism’s emptiness are becoming apparent, and that church decline is slowing and even reversing. Pray for this opportunity to be seized by astute believers to regain momentum for church growth and spread the leaven of the Kingdom. From Operation World DVD-ROM 2010,
