The activity regarding prayer has been so wonderful! Keep it up. How the church needs prayer. I will put in a plug for keeping up with your memory verses. I’m asking that our Jesus would take these verses this week and plant them and water them by the Holy Spirit in our children that have wandered from Him. I will be in prayer with you as always. Praying together, though I realize that all cannot, at 2pm CST on Monday afternoons is really powerful. It has been so good to pray together.
Pray -Tim and Nancy’s children, Jonathan and Kara (And the other 5 could use a swift kick, as well as the 23 grandchildren) will thirst for Jesus again.
-that my time with Jun & Regina is fruitful, especially as we head up to the mountains where Islam has been given part of the Island of Mindanao, where sharia law is the law. They are tired and work hard. That I can help and encourage them.
Just a footnote to tell you something. There is always opposition to my going to the Philippines but this year I really questioned why I was going. It’s long and arduous and all my belongings and bags, because I leave one suitcase of goods with them and then, have all my paraplegic supplies along etc, are stuffed. I travel alone and it’s hard and I wonder what good am I doing. It’s certainly a mistake. But once again, I see that the more i questioned why, the more certain that it is that the Lord had good plans. So it has happened again. Already our time has been amazing and I have been here only 24 hours.
I don’t intend to talk about me but you; when the going is rough for you, our enemy is sweating. Go for it with all of your hearts and don’t let our evil, hateful oppressor touch you.
