UGANDA MISSIONARIES: JIM & JOSEPHINE ZYLSTRA Forty + years ago Rev. Martin Zylstra moved to Redlands to pastor the Highland Ave. Christian Reformed Church, one of the tributaries of The River. At the time, his older son Jim was serving with the U.S. Marines as a hospital corpsman in Vietnam. Always interested in helping the disadvantaged, Jim Zylstra has since worked for decades with the Christian Reformed World Relief Committee (CRWRC). At this point he has been serving in Uganda for 12 years. Pastor Zylstra's oldest daughter Jeanne was at Calvin College in the early 70's when her family moved here. Jeanne raised her family in Arizona, but two daughters, Kristin and Kara, later moved to Redlands, near Aunt Joyce (Zylstra) De Kock. Kristin and Ben Slagter are members here, as are Kara and Nathan Banks. So, as we welcome Jim and Josephine Zylstra to The River, two younger couples are welcoming "Uncle Jim."

"Prayer for a Nation" Daniel 9:1-19 A. Daniel confesses the sins of God's people and their consequence for the nation of Israel. The context of this prayer is important (2 Chr. 36:15-21). God's people had been caught up by the surrounding __________ and its _____________ and had walked away from the faithfulness and obedience to Him alone that God ____________. This is a natural _____________________ of their rebellion. Daniel's prayer is not accusing the culture of harm, but it is indicting God's people from sewing the wind of ________________ and reaping the whirlwind of God's ______________. B. We are called to confess the sins of God's people and their consequence for our world. In many ways, we're in the same place. For many Christians, the _______________ is to blame a political party, an industry, or a social movement for the ills of culture without looking _________ to see our own __________________. The truth; many of the faith have allowed their light to dim and their salt to be bland.


The problems I have with Rush Limbaugh and Al Franken. C. God is merciful to forgive Israel and blesses their obedience to Him. The key verses of the text are vs. 9 and vss. 18 & 19. These verses show Daniel's acknowledgement of both the sin of Israel and their need for God's _________. God will have to ________ _____ their _______. Notice that Daniel doesn't make a deal to do better if God acts. This is purely God _______________. And God does act. Notice the following text especially where it speaks about the anointed one. Yet again, the fulfillment of God's ____________ and __________ comes to God's people in ___________. D. God is merciful to forgive us and blesses our obedience to Him. The text reminds us of the importance of acknowledging our _______ and being ____________ in waiting for Christ's ________________ action to come. Note: this may not happen very ___________! As we do see Christ move in us, we pursue what He is doing in our world in _______________ to His _________. Often this means ________________ the ills of culture with Christ's love and mercy and allowing Him to worry about the ___________ part. If He uses us for justice THBTG. Otherwise, we're not _______________! How XXXChurch is making progress in the Kingdom of God.
