CONFERENCE PRAYER REQUEST - Please pray today for the transitions that are facing Central Plains Mennonite Conference in the coming months. We pray especially for Tim Detweiler as his time at CPMC has officially ended (He retired at the end of April, but graciously agreed to continue half-time through June), and for Susan Janzen as she has ended her time at Cedar Falls Mennonite Church in preparation to come aboard the CPMC team in August. We pray that these transitions would be times of peace and joy and renewed vision.
