David Smiley began his role as the Regional Home Missionary for the Presbytery of Philadelphia on January 1, though these first weeks have been spent in the South. Pray for traveling mercies for Kathy and the Smiley children as they head to their new home in Pennsylvania, and for David as he travels to the Keys Evangelistic Ministries before joining them in a few days. Pray also that the family will be quickly integrated into their new church home, Covenant OPC in Reading. David’s focus in the next few months will be to get to know the presbytery’s people, and its story, as he seeks a context for his prayers and church planting efforts. Pray that God will bless his interactions with the congregations of the Presbytery and keep him safe while he travels. Pray, too, that David will find a good balance between being a husband and father and an RHM.
