By Pastor Glem Melo

From July 18 to August 8, our local church family, Park Community Church (South Rogers Park location, Chicago, IL, U.S.A.), held a free Soccer Camp for the kids in our neighborhood.  All the kids, parents, and other loved-ones had great fun.  We met many individuals and families of various races and ethnicities, and made significant friendship connections with them.  Most importantly, the Gospel was shared and Bibles were given to the children.  Praise the Lord!

Please pray that the Lord will continue to sustain and bless our friendship building, prayer, evangelism, disciple-making, and church planting mission to the nations in the Northside of Chicago.

God Is Your Victory

By Pastor Glem Melo

36863445_10214752773006380_3998094178633383936_nLast July 8, I preached at Park Community Church in Rogers Park.  The text was Judges 4. The message:

God is your victory;
say “yes” to Him!

The key verses:

“When the princes in Israel take the lead,
when the people willingly offer themselves—
praise the Lord!” (5:2)

“The people of Zebulun risked their very lives;
so did Naphtali on the terraced fields.” (5:18)

By Pastor Glem Melo

36704642_10156258098051211_9021588846881538048_nThe Lord blessed the humble launching of the youth ministry of Park Community Church at North Rogers Park.  Just a handful came, but it we all had fun, shared God’s word, and prayed together.

Please pray:

  1. For more youth to attend and be discipled through the new ministry
  2. For Bible studies to be established in key high schools in Rogers Park

Assyrian Neighbors

I saw our Assyrian neighbor Edi Toma walking and went out to join him. He is from Iraq and speaks very little English. He is 90+ years old and a retired priest of the Assyrian Church. I prayed for him at the end of our walk. Now, I am praying for our next walk and how I can minister to him. I also want to know more about his family.

Please help me pray for Edi and his loved ones.

May the peoples praise you, God;
may all the peoples praise you.
May the nations be glad and sing for joy,
for you rule the peoples with equity
and guide the nations of the earth.
May the peoples praise you, God;
may all the peoples praise you.
Psalm 67:3-5

Yesterday, we had a great time making international friends at New Field Elementary School in Northside Chicago, where we live.

Please help us pray that God would bless and save individuals and families among the 35,000 people from India, Pakistan, Afghanistan, 
Myanmar, Syria, Burma, etc. who are living in this area.

Screen Shot 2018-06-13 at 11.35.48 AMJesus told them, “This is what is written: The Messiah will suffer and rise from the dead on the third day, and repentance for the forgiveness of sins will be preached in his name to all nations…” (Luke 24:46-47)
