Pastor Tim Beauchamp [beach-um] asks that we join the congregation of Pleasant Mountain Presbyterian Church (OPC) in giving thanks for the many visitors throughout the summer. These months have been very busy with tourists and seasonal guests who come to the western lakes region of Maine. The congregation enjoyed reuniting with old friends, some of whom have been part of the work from its beginning twelve years ago. Meeting new friends, who have recently heard about the work and come to hear the gospel proclaimed, has also been a joy. The mission work thanks God who has richly supplied all its needs both financially and spiritually. There is great joy over the recent ordination and installation of Mark Stevens as a ruling elder. Pray for Mark and Pastor Beauchamp as they care for the Lord’s people. Pray for the ministry of the Word, for the salvation of those who do not know the Lord Jesus Christ, and for the godly nurture and training of their twenty-one covenant children. Pray also for the worship services held at a local convalescent home, and for other opportunities for making contacts and sharing the Gospel in the community.
