April Update

Hello Northwest Region,

 Things are moving along, and we now have less than 90 days until the event in Central Park! We praise God for all he is doing on Staten Island, for the cooperation between so many churches, as they join hands to minister to the most troubled neighborhoods, the unchurched and neighbors in distress.

Points of praise
Praise for the 17,000 connected by social media to NYCityFest in both English and Spanish!
Praise for the 1,500 churches already on board with NYCityFest. 

Points for prayer
~Continue to pray for this week, April 20-25, a key week in the ministry to Staten Island. 
~Pray for open doors in these many events and against the enemy as he seeks to limit the harvest.
~Pray for the ministry of Andrew Palau & his team to the local prisons during this week, for freedom to share, for open hearts, and for protection.
~Pray for Andrew Palau as he ministers at the youth event on April 24, that many young people will have their hearts and lives changed and for all the final details for this event to come together smoothly.
~Pray for the May Staten Island park events/mini festivals, that the details would come together successfully.
~Pray for Tom Mueller, area director, and his staff, for stamina, guidance and direction.
~Pray for protection for the staff and for their precious families during this incredibly busy season.
~Pray for Robin, who is in charge of coordinating volunteers, a massive undertaking. 
~Pray for the 10,000 volunteers needed, that they would respond to the call the Lord puts on their hearts.
~Pray for the ad campaign “Good News in the City,” and for the promotional materials being distributed to 14,000 churches. These churches may have no awareness of the NYCityFest, this would be their first point of contact and we must ask God to draw whole churches to this effort. Pray as these materials are finalized and readied for distribution.
~Pray for Wendy Palau and the Women’s Outreach dinner event planned for June 1 at Chelsea Piers, for the planning that must take place between now and then, for details and unity.
~Pray for the push to alert the Tri-County area about NYCityFest by social media, mail, phone, email blast, and Christian radio in these last key days and weeks before the Festival.

Now to Him who is able to do immeasurably more than all we ask or imagine, according to His power that is at work within us...Eph. 3:20

Blessings to you, dear prayer warriors-
