See below for the latest update from Phil and Shanna Davis, missionary partners currently living in Prague.
Soon after we returned to Prague, we traveled with our team to Lake Lipno in the south of Czech. It's become one of our favorite destinations, no matter what season. We went for 3 days and had a great time with our whole team. We spent great time praying for each person, for our church, and for the ministries that God has given us. We also soaked up the end-of-summer sun together and had good fun. God has given us a great team!
Our newest teammate, Jessica, arrived literally the day before the retreat. She is already a wonderful addition to our team, helping out with worship and women's ministry. And Talitha has come back! After about 5 months in the States, we're glad to have her back in Prague. Pray for our team as a whole, for ongoing unity, for Jessica's transition to Prague, and for Talitha's re-transition.
The fall is always an exciting time at church as we welcome back people who have been traveling, and as we greet new people. Faith Community has been packed the last few weeks - in fact, today (Tuesday) I've asked the church to fast and pray as we ask God to show us what sort of place He might want us to move to - we've hit our limit in our current facility. Would you join us in praying (and even fasting) to ask God to give us wisdom in our next move?
We're also trying to focus on building our church as a community (it is in the name of our church, after all!) - our home "community groups" start this week, and last week was our first-ever Community Dinner at church. It was a beautiful evening with great food and fellowship - I hope we get to do more of this in the future.
The kids have started their second week of school - this is the first year that all three of them are at Riverside - all day, every day! We're so proud of them, for the kids that they are, and how much fun we have with them. Lucy starts her Communicant's Class at church on Sunday, so be praying for her.
Thanks for your prayers for us, and for Prague. Our team really feels like something exciting is happening here, thanks for being part of it!
