Pastor Nathan to travel to Asia

On July 7, Nathan departs Portland at 11:30 a.m. The first half of the trip will be spent with Paul Mayhugh's co-workers visiting churches and encouraging believers in Macau and vicnity. Please pray for Nathan to be a good encourager (1 Thessalonians 5:11), to preach well (2 Timothy 4:2), and to be led by the Spirit in prayer (Ephesians 6:18).
The second half of the trip will be spent visiting former international students in Taiwan and South Korea. Most of these students are unbelievers or very new believers. Please pray specifically for Saxon, Sophia, Kevin, Dora, Sabrina, Donghoon, Shin, and the Hur family to hear the gospel and trust Jesus as their Savior. Pray for Nathan to be unashamed of the gospel (Romans 1:16), and for open doors to share the gospel (Colossians 4:3). Pray that unbelievers would receive the light of the knowledge of the glory of God in the face of Christ (2 Corinthians 4:6).

Pastor Nathan arrives back in Portland on July 28 at 3:52 a.m.
