We’re making a difference close to home by opening the doors to local ministries and across the continents by cultivating long-term relationships with global partners who build relationships that transform lives. Below is a list of a few of the programs and partners Calvary Church supports. For more information about our programs and local partners, check out the pdf here.
To pray for our Global Impact partners, pick up a copy of our Global Impact Partners Booklet at the Welcome Center, or request a copy by emailing Bonnie Johnson.
Prayers for Impact Partners
Local and global Impact partners will be highlighted here, with suggestions for how to pray for them. Check back weekly for updates and to see new partners you can pray for! We plan to update these on Wednesdays.
Peter & Nancy Cole
Please pray for the Coles and the country of Peru. Pray for wisdom as they plan the next short-term medical campaign scheduled for this fall, hoping that this will be possible. Pray for their Scalpel at the Cross partners on the ground in Peru as they remain under a strict government COVID-19 lockdown until June 30, and many people are in need of food and basic necessities. Pray for the long-term vision of Scalpel at the Cross as they plan to expand the campus in Peru to provide rehabilitation facilities for those recovering after orthopedic surgery.
Pray for Pastor Juan Felipe as he serves at Converge Hispanic churches in Pelican Rapids and Park Rapids, Minnesota. Pray for their Bible studies they are doing over Zoom on Wednesday and Thursday evenings with church attenders. Many members of both congregations have set aside Saturday evenings for prayer and fasting for those who are suffering from COVID-19. Please continue to pray for their musical outreach group that is now doing ministry on-line and for continued health for both Pastor Juan and his wife as they have conditions that make them more vulnerable to the virus.
If you’d know Spanish and would like to write Pastor Juan a note of encouragement his mailing address is 213 1stAve NW, Pelican Rapids, MN 56572.
Trout Lake Camps
Pray for Calvary Impact partner Trout Lake Camp as they continue to invest lots of time modifying their procedures to meet the latest CDC and MDH guidelines. Pray for summer staff training that began June 1. Pray for guidance as they have clearance from the State of Minnesota to open camps starting July 5! Many details to work through to make the experience safe for kids and families, and lots to communicate.
