Prayer List

Our prayer ministry at Bayshore is a blessing for the pray-ers as well as those for whom we pray. Be sure to email Barb Tolbert with any concerns you’d like to share or to receive emails as part of the chain. We distribute prayer lists on Wednesday nights and update our prayer list on the website with the permission of the families.

  • Praise report from Karen Alford: The two youth who left the island and could not be reached are safely back on the island with their families.  Both got suspicious of their circumstances.  The story they were being told kept changing, and they were kept isolated and in different cities.  Both managed to escape during the night and make their way back to the island.  Now that the other youth have heard their story they have agreed not to leave the island either. (3/4)
