A MILLION HOURS OF PRAYER— “Pray...Partnering in
the Gospel” is the theme as Nazarenes engage in a
Million Hours of Prayer between January and June 2005.
Our special emphasis is General Assembly, June 2005,
in Indianapolis. Each Nazarene is challenged to pray for
a minimum of 2 hours during the six-month time frame.
Special requests, such as the following, will be made
known during this time.

Please pray for the translators of General NMI
Convention written materials and for those who will
interpret at the Convention, that all delegates will
understand and be inspired. For more (MHP) requests,
please view the Million Hours of Prayer calendar at .

The February missions emphasis is ALABASTER OFFERING. Offerings for the
Alabaster fund are received in February and September. This offering is modeled after
the sacrifice of Mary, who poured her precious perfume from an alabaster bottle onto
Jesus’ feet (Matthew 26:6-13). Alabaster offerings provide funds for property and
buildings around the world. Bring your filled boxes to empty into the large Alabaster box at
the foyer counter. You can also pick up new boxes there. Children have their own boxes
that can be picked up in the Children's Department.

FEATURED MISSIONS BOOK—Why does God bless some people? The missionary
may be just The Rookie but this book is worth checking out just for the profound insights in
inning (chapter) five. We think it will be a blessing to you.

Adult and teen mission books are available for checkout between services at the Mission
Counter. Children’s books are available at the welcome table in the gym.
