Dear Co-laborers in Christ,

    I praise the Lord for each one of the 41 churches in Bowen Association Each one is distinctively different, which is the way it should be. Brenda and I always get a blessing when we visit each church. We pray for you all-that God will continue to bless and that no matter what circumstances seem to prevail, God is still able to revive each church.
    Many do not believe in revival any more. They say it does not work. Nothing works unless you work it. Revival comes through earnest praying and seeking God, followed by confession and repentance among the saints. Revival is not reaching the lost, but when the church is revived, you will reach the lost. Many churches have lost their joy and praise. Israel cried unto God, “Revive us again that we may rejoice in Thee.” If your church seems to have lost its joy, then it definitely needs revival.
    The preparation for revival always come through the earnest praying. Like Jacob prayed, “God, I will not turn You loose until You bless me.” The prophet, Jeremiah, said that he would, “weep day and night over the slain of the daughter of his people.” Are we willing to give ourselves to this type praying as we see our children and grandchildren being attacked so by the world? If we gave as much energy to praying for the spiritual condition of our churches and for the lost as we do for the sick, I believe our churches would be different. While it is not wrong to pray for the sick, we need to be broken over the complacency in so many of our churches.
    People keep talking about the loss of interest in the churches. Could it be that our churches have become so powerless that we are ineffective in reaching the world?
    Let me encourage you to pray for the work of the church, the workers in the church, the weak in the church, the wayward from the church, and the wicked without Christ.
"Psalm. 42:3, “My tears have been my meat day and night, while they continually say unto me, Where is thy God?”
Please continue to pray for me and Brenda as we serve with you. We appreciate all the prayers for Brenda with her health issues and please continue to pray for her as she still has some problems. We love you folks and thank God for you all! 
Your servants in the Lord,
Ken and Brenda Cloud

Please note and share that the new hours of the Alpha Pregnancy Center are from 10 a.m. – 4 p.m. on Tuesday and 10 a.m. – 1 p.m. on Wednesday. We believe this will increase the opportunity for more people who work or are in school to come by the center. Please continue to pray for this ministry and for volunteers to help staff the center. This is a ministry that we partner with Sherwood Baptist in Albany.
