Praying For Our People 
- Be in prayer for our local schools, administration, teachers, and students as they make adjustments in this season. We praise God for the positive result in Fresno County Superior Court allowing Immanuel to remain open for instruction. Next court date is September 15.

- Pray for Duane Friesen, his surgery to remove a brain tumor was successful. He is home recovering and waiting on pathology reports. Pray for continued healing, a good pathology report, and God's presence to be known.

- Pray for Jane Thomsen, she will be having open heart surgery on September 7. Also for their sons and their families as they have been evacuated from their homes in the  Scotts Valley/Santa Cruz mountains because of the fires in that region.

- Be in prayer for Tim Harms, son of Menno and Jane Harms and brother of Rod Harms. Tim is currently undergoing cancer treatments and has now tested positive for COVID and will need hospitalization.

- OUR CONDOLENCES are extended to Jim Dueck and family on the death of his mother, Erica Dick. She passed away on August 24. Funeral details are pending.

-  Ruby Barkman is asking for prayer for her daughter's family as they have had to evacuate from their home in the Santa Cruz area. Be in prayer for the firefighters as they fight these fires.

- Pray for Rachel Gonzalez and family as she is being treated for stage 4 cancer. Rachel reports that she is feeling better and is encouraged.

- From Georgia Penner. I want to thank you for all your prayers and cards through the last few months of my surgery and radiation treatment. They were a great encouragement to me.  

- Please be in prayer for Ken and Patty Thiesen as Ken goes through chemotherapy treatments for leukemia. Pray for healing, peace, and the Lord's presence for Ken and his family.

- Pray for Roy Peak as he continues on hospice care. Pray for Eldoris and Robyn Wall as well. Eldoris is currently only able to see Roy via Facetime depending on staff availability and scheduling. Continue to lift them up in prayer.

Praying for our Nation and World
- Continue to pray for our health care workers, first responders, law enforcement, firefighters, and those who serve and protect us in these turbulent times. Pray that the Lord would protect and strengthen them as they go to work each day.

- Let's pray for one another. COVID has affected all of us. May the Lord draw us closer to Himself and give us boldness and opportunities to share the Gospel with family, friends, and neighbors.

Praying for Our Ministries: 
- Pray for wisdom and insight for our RMBC leaders as they make decisions that affect our church ministries. Pray that the Holy Spirit will give us new ways to share the Gospel. 

- Missionaries of the Week:  Saji and Bindu Oommen, serving with Multiply. Pray for Saji as he continues to meet with and guide missionaries throughout the Central Asia region. Currently, Multiply has more than 50% of their missionaries “stranded” on MINA’s unable to return to the countries they work in. Pray for Saji as he helps to manage these missionaries, and the ministries they work with. 

- Pray Luke 10:2 with us each day at 10:02 am, asking the Lord of the harvest to raise up harvesters from RMBC for His harvest fields.
