Please pray for our homeless families, they need help from the community and from Rebound.
Pray for the families that are ill with the flu that is going around.As we prepare for our busy Spring and Summer season, please pray that volunteers and interns would see the ministry opportunities at Rebound. We are in need of volunteers and interns for office clerical work, youth mentoring and planning activities, Community Resource Development and Fundraising & Marketing. This could be a wonderful opportunity for college students as well as older adults who are looking for rewarding volunteer work with a ministry that is making a huge difference in the lives of vulnerable families in Whatcom County.
Please pray for a Rebound dad whose child was returned to him this summer, but who is struggling with meeting his obligations and is in danger of having the child removed again, this time for good. We believe in this dad, but he needs to show that he can parent in a well-rounded manner.
Pray for a couple in our Parenting class to remain calm, and focused on the best interest of their child, as they work towards having the child returned to them. Protect them from the negative talk surrounding their situation. Also pray for them to find housing ASAP.
Please pray for favorable outcomes from the many grants we are writing in this grant-writing season. Rebound relies greatly on Foundation funding to continue our programs' important work in our community.
Pray that our Ray of Hope Summer Day program will find a suitable location for 2018. We need to find an alternative location to stage Ray of Hope for 80 children and 30 staff and need prayers that the right place with the right accommodations become available at the right time.
Pray also for our application process - that parents will see the positive results Ray of Hope has had in many children's lives and apply to send their children to our camp this year as we plan to increase the number of children we are accepting.
