We are preparing to head back to the US next month for our first furlough, and need prayers for connections, favor, and peace within our family with transition. The kids will be going to school in America for the first time. Thank you for your faithfulness in praying for us to accomplish what God has for us here in Spain!
We are just a few days/weeks away from our new baby being born. Please pray for a healthy delivery and that we can successfully navigate the birthing process in Spanish!
Starting tomorrow morning here in Indonesia, 200+ million muslim cousins will begin their month of fasting. We Americans cringe at the idea, but they actually look forward to it. It literally draws them closer together, much like those who have fought and suffered in war has a greater bond, or a group that sets out to climb Everest will always have a special connection. As friends and family suffer all day long together, it makes the evening feast all the more sweeter. Let us pray as our cousins set out to please God in the way they know how, that Jesus will reveal himself to them and show them the way to salvation. This has and is happening across the Muslim World. To see stories of this go to http://morethandreams.org/ If you desire a good 30 day prayer guide to supplement my leading, there is a really good one at https://www.pray30days.org/ set your watches and phones for 4:43 am (3:43 pm CST) and lets see what God will do!
The itinerarion year ended and I arrived back in Colombia on March 31, 2017. The Lord has led me to another city where I will be working wth Bible School students who are studying missions. Please pray that I will effectively teach the course Transcultural Communications class to these stuents,
Will you pray? Tomorrow night (Friday morning in the States) will start the 30 of Fasting hear in Indonesia known as Ramadan. It is a requirement that all muslims (barring a few exceptions) must all food, drink and worldly pleasures from sun up to sundown. A lot of foreigners find this annoying, but for me it breaks my heart. You see, our cousins who don't know the truth are trapped in a religion who has misled them into seeking the one true God all the wrong ways. I have committed and ask that you consider joining me in praying for our cousins every morning at 4:43 am for the fajr prayer. Fear not, this 3:34pm CST and will start Saturday morning (Friday afternoon in the U.S.) I hope to be able to add a prayer focus before each morning/afternoon prayer time. A friend of ours has set her watch to go off every day at the fajr prayer time to pray for the Bugis people. Set your watches, set your phones and join us in prayer to see the Glory of God shone on our cousins trapped in this. Blessings!
We are leaving for Palopo (8hrs away) to minister in that area over this weekend. Tomorrow we'll head up to Tede, a village outside Palopo about 9 miles but takes about 2hrs in the 4x4. And then work on the Esperanza house and playground friday and Saturday. Sunday we will minister in another village called Baramamase on sunday and head back to Makassar after that. Please pray God's awesome love will be turned loose on everyone we come in contact with.
