Mattawamkeag is a town of approximately 670 people, situated on the confluence of the Mattawamkeag and Penobscot Rivers in Northern Central Maine. When the Interstate was built, it devastated the local economy, formerly fed by traffic on Rt 2, the main road North. With almost no industry here, most people are retired or unemployed/underemployed.
We need wisdom as we disciple young men to become leaders in the church. God is doing an amazing work among the young people here, and we are grateful for the youth group that He is growing; pray for this next generation that they would continue to make the Lord’s Kingdom their priority. Please also pray that as our church is seeing a large influx of young people, the Lord would supply the resources ($) to stay afloat to serve them and others. Pray for open doors into the lives of men who can lead their whole families to believe in and follow Jesus.
