Vanhorn Family Prayer

Hello friends,

I wanted to throw out a quick shout out to you all for some prayer. This Tuesday we will be presenting two potential target locations for planting the church. My bride and I had been strongly leaning toward the 45th & Lamar area of Austin. We have found some strong favor in the community and are developing partnerships. We had pretty much decided that we would planting in that general area, until recently when another planter in our organization revealed that he is looking at the same area. It is almost a certainty that they will not plant two churches in the same place. So, we are taking a fresh look at South Austin. Both areas have huge spiritual needs, they are both pretty distinct from one another and God has ‘yet to be revealed’ sons and daughters in both areas.

We desperately need the Lord to speak clearly in the next five days. We will be presenting our two locations to the Church Plant Team on Tuesday and making a case for the one location that we feel led toward.

We will be pouring our lives out in this community, we will be preaching the gospel in one community and not in the other, we will be asking people to move across the state or country to join us and we will be spending the next 20+ years likely in that community.

We are asking each of you to intercede for us and these two communities at this time. Please pray for open hearts, open minds and open hands on our part. Lastly, praise God that he has invited us to start a new church in Austin, Texas. What a great God and King we serve!!

We love you all.

    Appreciate it brother. I think He is leading, but I am going to sit on it in prayer for a few more days yet. And yes, the needs are vast.
