There is No "I" in Team

March 18, 2013

 Pastor Victor Airiohuodion of CityGate Church leads the weekly ICM Hour of Power prayer time.

ICM staff and community prayer partners join hearts in prayer for Hour of Power.

There is no “I” in TEAM. I am convinced Jesus showed us how to do this in His life of service. Jesus’ time was concentrated on twelve men, His focus was narrow, yet His intensity increased incredibly because He poured Himself into a few trusted servants. He lived, worked and died in their presence. John 15:5 reminds us, “I am the vine, you are the branches. If a man remains in me and I in him, he will bear much fruit; apart from me you can do nothing.”


 Alisa Rodgers, wife of Pastor Kevin Rodgers of First Baptist El Cajon leads the FBEC team. Pray for her as she directs her group to complete the many details necessary to travel to Africa.

Please pray for our Spring 2013 Kenya/Uganda Team, as we prepare and fundraise. Thanks to modern technology, we are able to meet bi-monthly by Skype from four different cities. It’s amazing to plan and organize our trip this way. Please pray for our team by name: Cali Ryan,co-leader, Cali’s mother, Charlene Ryan, craft coordinator, Alisa Rodgers, FBEC team leader, Sylvester Warsaw Jr., men’s conference teacher, Raeanne Colson, VBS coordinator, Susy Pearl and Ceci Willever.


Ben and Megan Giesbrecht celebrate Ben’s March 8 graduation from his Navy training program. Ben moves to Fayettesville, NC on April 6 to begin medical training, Megan will join him mid-July 2013.


Sheryl with Sarah (Giesbrecht) and husband, Matt Hunter, celebrate Ben’s graduation at Dewar’s. Matt is considering attending a welding school; please pray for confirmation and direction.

My prayer for you, ICM, myself, my family and all the areas God allows me any influence, I will remain in Him. I pray we will stay connected to the Vine, remain in His words. And fulfill John 15:7 “If you remain in me and my words remain in you, ask whatever you wish and it will be given you.”  

Glad YOU are on the TEAM!
