North Dakota District Requests:
Blenda D. and her family as they endure watching their son Dillan (age 31) suffer with stage 4 cancer that has taken over his whole body. The doctors have given him a short time to live (4 weeks to 4 months). Please pray for relief from his pain as the pain meds are not giving him much rest or comfort.
Please also pray for Rev. Heath T.’s wife Aunee, who is dealing with breast cancer and going through treatments. (They have 2 young boys.)
That the Lord prepares the right pastors for the 3 vacant congregations that are calling pastors.
For rain in North Dakota - the July heat has been hard for so many.

South Dakota District Requests:
Please pray for our new Mission and Ministry Council as it seeks to provide helpful resources to our church workers, congregations and schools.
Pray for our missionaries to the Native Americans: Rev. Andrew Utecht and Rev. Albert Sutton, particularly as they seek to bring the hope of Jesus to the precious people who live on the Rosebud and Pine Ridge Reservations, respectively.
