Hautle Prayer Points – June 2021

June 1, 2021

Dear praying friend,

And it shall be with him, and he shall read in it all the days of his life Deuteronomy 17:9

It was great to teach once again! Thanks for your prayers as the InDesign course went on these past three weeks. Teaching via Zoom, while having several advantages, proved a little difficult at times, but we’re thankful for patient students! One of the difficulties was juggling five different time zones. For some of the students, the course interrupted their dinner. For others, they would normally be going to bed when the course started.
We’re hoping God will mightily use what was taught to bring the Gospel to many more children in Europe and Asia—that the children will take hold of the Word of God and read it all the days of their lives!

The office continues to take shape. We’re grateful for the mudding and taping, which was done by a gentleman we got in contact with through one of our supporting churches.

PRAISES

  • The InDesign course went very well, and for the nine students and an interpreter who took part.
  • Our office is nearly completed—thank God for the help we got mudding and taping!
  • Amy is really enjoying her job at Sweet Treats—a candy and ice cream parlor in town.

REQUESTS

  • For the students who took the InDesign course, that they will be able to effectively use what they’ve learned.
  • Pray we can finish the office soon!
  • Tomorrow (Tuesday, June 1), Brent is traveling to upstate NY to help with final packing and drive his parents down to central PA. Please pray for:
    • Safety traveling up June 1.
    • All the details of the sale of the house in NY and the purchase of the one in PA.
    • We’re having difficulty getting a U-haul truck. We’re specifically wanting to go with U-haul as there’s a drop-off location minutes away from here. Please pray we can get that nailed down by Thursday.
    • The loading of the truck on Thursday night.
    • The drive down to PA on Friday.
    • Closing on Monday, June 7
    • Safety unloading that afternoon/evening.
  • June 19–24 we are taking part in CEF of Pennsylvania’s Christian Youth in Action® training school. Please pray we will be a blessing to the teens and staff!

Thank you! We greatly covet your prayers!

The Hautle’s – May 2021

May 2021
Dear praying friend,
I will give thanks to you, O Lord, among the peoples; I will sing praises to you among the nations. Psalm 57:9
The Child Evangelism Fellowship® International Conference has just finished. It was a great time to connect with people digitally from around the world. One person wrote “I and my family are watching from a refugee camp in Uganda in the middle of the night.” Had we had a physical conference, they never would have been able to attend. Praise be to God for His provision!

We would appreciate your prayers during the next three weeks as Brent teaches an online course to students from nine different countries in five different time zones.

PRAISES

  • Praise God for an encouraging CEF International Conference, which took place digitally.
  • Praise God the new European promotional materials have been distributed.
  • Several men from church came to help with constructing an office in the basement. We are so very blessed by the work they did!

REQUESTS

  • For the course Brent is teaching May 10–28 via Zoom. Please pray for everyone’s internet connection, that it would be strong each day. Please pray too for all the equipment, that it will function well and not have any crashes or mishaps. Pray too for the interpreter, that she will not get weary interpreting for three hours each day. Finally, pray Brent will effectively equip these Multimedia students from around the world, that the ministry that have will result in many more children reading or hearing the Gospel in their heart language.
  • We are very close to finishing the construction of the office! Pray we can finish it quickly.
  • We are preparing for Brent’s parents’ move a few blocks from us either the end of May or beginning of June. Pray for all the preparations we have, for the sale of their house and loading of the truck, safety in their trip and a good closing and unloading.
  • June 19–24 we are taking part in CEF of Pennsylvania’s Christian Youth in Action® training school. Please pray we will be a blessing to the teens and staff!
Thank you! We greatly covet your prayers!

Hautle Prayer Points – February 2021

February 2021

Dear praying friend,
“I have blotted out your transgressions like a cloud…” Isaiah 44:22
The other day the snow was falling so heavily, we couldn’t see the nearby mountains. That’s when verses like this come to life!
We’re so thankful for your prayers. You’ve been praying for us to be able to get a house for the last several months and Lord-willing, this afternoon we’ll be closing on a house in Elizabethville—please praise God with us! Please pray too as we’re moving over the next several days—we’re supposed to get hit with another snowstorm tomorrow.

PRAISES

  • A large ministry promotional campaign is nearing the finish line!
  • We were able to take a quick trip to see Brent’s parents this past weekend.
  • All the “little” ways God orchestrated the purchase of our house. To Him be the glory!
  • Amy and Christopher had a great and challenging time at our youth group snow camp.

REQUESTS

  • For our move this weekend—for safety of all those helping.
  • Amy and Christopher will be changing schools. Please pray for them as they adjust to new routines, teachers and classmates at Upper Dauphin.
  • For Jeff’s children Hannah (and her husband Josh) and Collin, still dealing with Jeff’s loss.
  • Creativity in several large projects—especially for a complete redesign of the Youth Challenge materials.

News From The Hautle’s – December 2020

December 2020

Dear praying friend,

“And His name shall be called … Wonderful Counselor … Prince of Peace.” Isaiah 9:6

There is nothing more fitting than these words right now. To have a Counselor who hears our prayers and heals our hearts and to have a Prince of Peace who brings comfort during trials.
COVID finally caught up with us. While Jen and the kids had little or no symptoms of it, Brent was hit very hard, and it ended up turning into pneumonia.
When Brent was at his worst, we received word his brother Jeff passed away suddenly—what a shock. Jeff’s wife passed away nearly two years ago and we mourn especially for their children. But we’re grateful—Jeff is with his Savior! That takes so much of the sting away, and the Prince of Peace has certainly been our peace.
We hope that this Christmas, you’ll experience the peace of Immanuel—God among us!

PRAISES

  • Even though we couldn’t travel to the funeral, we were able to watch a live stream of Jeff’s service—and the Gospel was clearly presented.
  • Brent is recovering well.
  • Jen and the kids recovered quickly.
  • The final Multimedia Summit session went very well, with lots of participation and enthusiasm.
  • The latest Good News Club® resource pack was completed and distributed.
  • Amy was able to lead a child to Christ at AWANA.

 

REQUESTS

  • For Jeff’s children Hannah (and her husband Josh) and Collin as they face life without their parents. Please pray for all the legal issues they face and that they would continue relying on God to be their strength.
  • For us and my parents as we continue to grieve.
  • We are still looking for a house to purchase in the Millersburg area.
  • Creativity in several large projects.
  • Please pray as we continue to adjust as a family to our new surroundings. Pray especially that Amy and Christopher can make friends with other believers.

Dear praying friend,

With all the changes this year—for us personally, in our ministry and everything going on in the world—we’re making one more change. We’re hoping to be able to keep in touch better through regular Hautle Prayer Points emails.
We do want to take the time to say “thank you” for lifting us up in prayer to our Heavenly Father. We greatly appreciate it!

  • For virtual clubs taking place across Europe that are reaching thousands of children during the quarantine.

REQUESTS

  • We are still looking for a house to purchase in the Millersburg area.
  • For the final Multimedia Summit taking place next week.
  • We’re in the final stages of completing another Good News Club® resource pack. Please pray for its timely completion and as it gets translated.
  • Creativity in several large projects.
  • Virtual Christmas Clubs will be taking place all across Europe. Please pray many unchurched children will sign up and for the Gospel to be clearly explained. Please pray for many children to come to faith in Christ.

Hautle Happenings – March 2020

Dear praying friend,

What a roller coaster of a month we’ve all had. It’s good to know COVID-19 hasn’t taken the Lord by surprise.
Please find our latest newsletter attached. A few up-to-date developments:
  1. We were asked to create a special devotional book specifically for the CEF Coronavirus page (https://www.cefonline.com/covid19/) It should go up within the next few days.
  2. As COVID-19 has hit Europe hard, we’re also busy with emergency materials there. Please pray we can provide these items quickly in many languages.
Thank you so much for standing with us.
Blessings,
-Brent, Jen, Amy and Christopher
