Pray.

As we seek to communicate and share the Vision, Mission, Values and Strategy of NLC it is important that we continue to look at everything we do with a clear and critical eye. As we grow we will be faced with an increasing amount of opportunities and need to have a very clear understanding of what we are doing and why we are doing them. This document will serve as a starting place for this to happen.

For the sake of clarity and simplicity we have used bullet points. The flow is movement oriented. We wanted to start with the intention and purpose for each of our five strategic areas, answering the WHY question. We then answer the SO; so we will because we want to. Finally we want everyone to see then that there are a number of things that they can then do or follow through with.

PRAYER

Intention & Purpose:

  • intimacy with God
  • discipleship
  • answered prayer
  • transformation in our community
  • care for one another
  • looking beyond ourselves- global emphasis

Cancer & Me

08/23

Prayers for my leukemia. Apparently I was diagnosed with a cancer that is more prevalent in children 12 and under. Well for me cancer is cancer and ANY prayers I can get, I will appreciate. I quit smoking thru all this too. But I also have severe anemia as well. The doctors say the anemia has nothing to do with the cancer, BUT I got to wonder. The third part of this "Perfect Storm" (reference to the movie Perfect Storm with George Clooney) is my blood glucose. And because I take steroids going thru chemo, my glucose levels have spiked at 400 during the first round of treatment. So I need prayers for both the diabetes, the anemia and the leukemia. I'll take prayers for any and all. Also if there is anyone who can help with transportation to and from Hershey clinic on "infusion" days, please e-mail me at: debstake1611@comcast.net OR call me at 717-254-3822 or TEXT me at the same phone number, listed. I will get back to you. Please let me know who you are though when you leave messages/texts.
