Exalting Jesus Christ through prayer and worship for the glory of God.

RUNNING FROM MAY 16TH TO AUGUST 24TH

June Newsletter

We had our annual fundraiser on April 28th and it was such a blessing with great fellowship and wonderful worship. Normally on an event like that we raise around $25,000. This year we raised closer to $45,000 towards our yearly goal of $200,000 – Praise the Lord for he is faithful, Psalm 146:6. At the event, the LOWPC board commissioned Heather Treas to carry on the ministry of Encounter Camp this summer. It is great to see this ministry continue to around 80 children teaching them to pray and listen to the voice of God! Here is a photo of the board praying over Heather. She is joined by her husband Mark and their son Boon.

Update on Bless Every Home. LOWPC is now praying for 510 neighbors, with almost 4,000 prayers shared since February. If you would like to be involved in praying for your neighbors you can register at www.blesseveryhome.com

At the fundraiser we launched 100 days of prayer with Praise 106.5.  In the 1st week Praise 106.5 has sent out 318 daily texts! That is 2,226 Prayers in the 1st week alone! Outstanding!

The 8 person Korean mission trip May 8th-13th was incredible! The Koreans were officially welcomed by Chief Rebecca Mertzig from Bellingham Police. The Koreans prayed for the chief and her officers. On the mission trip we covered many areas in prayer including: the Canadian border, Olympia State Capitol, downtown Seattle, and many areas in Whatcom County. A highlight of the trip was dedicating two new prayer rooms in Whatcom County; Clearbrook House of Prayer (shown below) and a new location downtown.

God has birthed another House of Prayer in Whatcom County! The Clearbrook House of Prayer is in the “House of the Living God” at 9691 Van Burien Rd. Lynden WA. This was the Clearbrook Lutheran Church and by God’s amazing plan it was given to the Hispanic network of churches pastored by Ivan Montenegro and team. Tim Scott will direct the House of Prayer in conjunction with LOWPC. As the schedule grows we will update in this newsletter or on the LOWPC website. You can also call Tim at 360-483-8691. Currently there is prayer on Thursday mornings from 7-10 and Saturday morning from 10-12. More times will be added soon.

 

From the beginning of this story it has been clear God has planned and orchestrated this ministry. Pastor Ivan and team were in prayer one Saturday morning asking God to speak to us. Immediately we got a phone call and a voice said, “I have a church I want to give to you!” Since then, we have see God work in amazing ways. Mission teams have come to work, pray and fix up the place. Local businesses have painted the inside and recarpeted the building, and…the Korean team came just in time to dedicate the building as a House of Prayer. WOW. In addition to the times above we will have a Wednesday evening church/prayer service.

As we go forward into Summer, this is going to be a busy season! We are working closely with our Native American ministry partners for an exciting local ministry opportunity. Everything we do at LOWPC is in collaboration with other ministries for greater effectiveness to advance the Kingdom of God in Whatcom County. We couldn’t do this without your faithful support. Thank you so much for your generous donations! Your faithful contributions are making a difference in Whatcom County and Washington State. 

May the Lord bless you all!

With love, the LOWPC Team.

COMING UP!!

The Light of the World Prayer Center is partnering with Bless the City Church  and Bellingham Christian School to host a summer day camp for children ages 4-14.  At this camp we will create space for children to encounter the love of God through prayer, praise, and play! Our vision is to equip your child to recognize the voice of the Holy Spirit through several prayer practices and discussions from Psalm 139:1-6.
Our hope is that each child will leave camp feeling KNOWN and SEEN by the Lord!
July 22nd, 23rd, 24th and 25th from 9am-12pm.
Bellingham Christian School: 1600 E Sunset Dr, Bellingham, WA 98226
Make sure to bring your Bible and water bottle.
At camp, we hope children will:
Know and love God the Father. 
Experience the power of the Holy Spirit. 
Grow in the Word of God.
Have fun together!
This is a collaborative camp where pastors, worship leaders and moms and dads from our county are creating space for your children!  Please contact Heather Treas if you would like to learn more (heathertreas@gmail.com).

PRAY FOR YOUR NEIGHBORS WITH 'BLESS EVERY HOME'
Bless app
Bless Every Home is an amazing tool which will help you pray daily for your neighbors. You can sign up at Blesseveryhome.com or download the Bless app for your phone (logo above right). Simply fill in your details (you can either add Light of the World Prayer Center as your contact, and see how we are growing together in prayer throughout Whatcom County, OR you can add the church you attend). Choose the days you prefer and spend a minute praying for your neighbors. Bless Every Home will record when you’ve prayed and encourage you to move into a conversation with your neighbor, then a gospel conversation and then the ultimate goal is to be discipling your neighbor in Christ. We would love to hear any testimony of how God is using this tool to reach your neighbors!

Prayer as a priority

There are different ways you can connect with others in prayer through LOWPC. The prayer room has different sets (or themes for prayer) throughout the week. These include such areas as family, the persecuted church, next generation, amongst others. See the schedule for days and times. There are also prayer walking opportunities at schools and other sites. Several churches sign up for the Day2Pray initiative and perhaps you could become the coordinator for your church if it is not yet involved!
