Prayer Partner Letter

April 2017

Dear Prayer Partners,

In Psalm 90, Moses prays about the brevity of life and the eternal nature of God. In light of these, he finishes:

Let the favor of the Lord our God be upon us;
And confirm for us the work of our hands;
Yes, confirm the work of our hands (verse 17).

We are entering the final weeks of another school year. It is an intense time as courses are completed, graduation preparations are made, the plans of second and third-year students are settled, and we prepare for the new school year. We need the favor of the Lord to confirm all that we have desired in each of the students.

Thank you once again for standing with us in the Lord’s work. The whole endeavor greatly depends on the Lord’s answers to your faithful intercession. This is particularly important at this time of the year.

As our students move through these final weeks, it is easy to look to the future and fail to receive all that the Lord has in the present. We have often exhorted them to “live well in the immediate present.” They will need grace to do this. In their remaining time, there is still work to be done in each one, so please pray for our students.

While we are finishing our school year, we are also preparing. There is a great deal to accomplish before September. Because our facility is over 45 years old, there are constant updating and renovation needs. Pray that we will have both the strength and workers to undertake these projects. Pray also for students for next year. We have already accepted quite a few and are trusting for many more. While we interview potential students, pray that the Lord will confirm those He wants at EI.

More internationals have applied for next year than we can accept. Pray as we decide upon the best candidates. These are critical decisions made on a minimal amount of information, so we need wisdom.

Finally, we ask once again for prayer for the renewal of our visa status. This renewal should have been completed months ago, but we have had no recent word on the matter. We need this decision in order to accept internationals for next year. Please pray.

Thank you again for your prayers. May the favor of the Lord be upon you and may He wonderfully confirm the work of your hands in every area of life.

In Our Lord,
Art Nuernberg
