Number of Callers Increases

An upward trend in the number of calls to 452-PRAY (452-7729) has been observed recently. For some time we had averaged about 15 calls per day. Of late, the count has more frequently been 18 to 20 -- with some days reaching as high as 30. Praise the Lord! Don't forget to tell your friends and neighbors. (For a sunny day, Dial 452-PRAY).

Putting Hands and Feet to Your Prayers

Dial 452-PRAY appreciates the many prayers lifted up to God on behalf of this ministry. The Lord has richly blessed our efforts for 37 years. Have you ever thought of becoming actively involved? Here are some of the many volunteer opportunities which are available:

  1. Making a financial contribution and/or encouraging your church group to do the same.
  2. Preparing and recording messages.
  3. Serving as a church rep. who organizes a message-recording team from his/her church.
  4. Serving on a committee.

Meet Our Weekday Message-Transferer

Bev Steffen is a retired Lutheran School teacher who gives unselfishly of her many talents to further the Lord's kingdom. In addition to transferring the message from our hand-held recording machines to the answering machine, she does data-base entry for Bethlehem Church where she serves as a pre-baptism counselor, a member of the Board of Assimilation, and VBS volunteer. She also helps Bethlehem School as a tutor and forensics coach, and serves as an education facilitator for the Sheboygan County Historical Museum. Bev also enjoys spending time with her family, which includes husband Lee, two married children and five grandchildren. She still finds time to pursue her many hobbies. We welcome her to the Dial 452-PRAY team!

Thanks to a Summertime Volunteer

During the months of June, July and August, weekday messages were transferred by the secretary of Bethlehem Lutheran School, Dawn Hemschemeyer. Dial 452-PRAY is very grateful for Dawn's willingness to serve.
