Prayer Spotlight

Franklin & Lynnette Knoop, Balsam, MN

Our location is approximately 100 miles northwest of Duluth, Minnesota. There are a lot of trees and lakes and... mosquitoes, which makes it a good recreational area (except for the mosquitoes). 

PRAYER REQUESTS: 1) Please pray that, when it comes to loving the Lord and one another (Matt. 22:37-40), we would "increase more and more" (1 Thess. 4:9-10). Along with that... 2) Please pray for an increased hunger and thirst for the Lord Jesus and for His Word - both in the Church Family and in the community as a whole. 3) Please pray that in all we do, we would seek to glorify God above all (1 Cor. 10:31). THANK YOU FOR PRAYING.
