Dear CCC Prayer Partners,

Thank you for your prayers and for continuing to send your praises and prayer requests.  Blessings on all of you and all you do!

Philippians 1:3

"I thank my God in all my remembrance of you" 

PRAISE:

The Mexican Congress, determined to fight climate change, has just voted, 78-0, to adopt strong measures to reduce greenhouse gases!  Good news! 

PRAYER REQUESTS:

1.  Please pray for Gina and Rick in their creative work and Christian outreach for the LORD on Widbey Island, WA.  Pray they will be BLESSED with the income they need; with health and strength; and, with others who want to join them in the vision of deep health for people and our planet, both physically and spiritually.

2.  A petition was recently filed with the U. S. Interior Dept. to list the black-backed woodpecker under the Endangered Species Act (the ESA).  There are now only a few small populations of this woodpecker in CA, OR, and WY, due to the fact that their habitat in being destroyed by logging.  These birds are at significant risk of extinction if they are not listed under the ESA, but petitions to list endangered creatures are usually ignored, and the only chance for listing comes after a successful lawsuit.  Please pray the Lord will move those who will decide this woodpecker's fate, and cause them to list the black-backed woodpecker under the Endangered Species Act. 

Love and prayers,

Connie and Amy

'Take with you seven pairs of all animals, the male and its mate,

 and seven pairs of the birds of the air also, male and female,

 to keep their kind alive on the face of all the earth.'"
