Our Praying Family

This week I'd like to share with you about the group that may be our most vital asset in following God's call to RGBI (and really in every part of our lives).

Billy took the idea of the Praying Family from Francis Schaeffer's articles of faith for the L'abri Fellowship. Our adapted definition goes like this:
Christians who feel led by the Holy Spirit to covenant with God to assume special and regular prayer responsibility for Billy & Sarah Jackson shall be considered as part of The Praying Family. The Praying Family of Billy & Sarah Jackson is to be understood as active in the work, and is to be considered an important and essential part of the structure of Billy & Sarah Jackson's ministry.

Basically, the Praying Family is a group of people who have promised to pray for us. They are kept well informed through many emails, and are often the first to know about any new occurrences in our lives. This group of brothers and sisters means more to us than we could ever express. It is such a comfort to be able to pour our hearts out to them and know that they will take our needs straight before the Lord in prayer!

While many of the members of our Praying Family are also financial supporters, many others are not. This is a ministry that any believer can be a part of. So many times in my life all I've had to offer a brother or sister is prayer. I never realized what an amazing, important, and powerful gift that was until now.

If you would like to commit to praying regularly for us, and would like to receive updates as a member of our Praying Family, please send us a note using the form in the upper right of the page (across from the Pac-Man). In the message, please specify that you would like to join the Praying Family, so that we don't just put your email on our Newsletter List!

Dios los bendiga, amigos!
Thank you for your time. :)

In the Love of Christ,
Billy & Sarah Jackson
