Hello Dear Friends and Fellow Laborers, Month: December 2021
Is it really already December? Merry Christmas to you! Happy New Year! We are praising God for another church that took us on this past month! We are currently at about 35% of our needed support. From what I’ve been told by other missionaries, getting to 50% is the hardest part. Would you pray that we are able to reach 50% before Thalia is born (end of March)?
So, funny story, Gina and I had the opportunity to go to the church she grew up in over this past Thanksgiving holiday. We went to a Pie & Praise service on the Tuesday before Thanksgiving, and since Pastor Luke’s favorite pie is coconut cream pie, Gina wanted to make it for him. We went to the store to get everything we’d need to make… but we forgot to get eggs. As we went back out to get eggs I couldn’t help but think that there was a reason God had us forget the eggs. I don’t believe in coincidence, so there has to be a reason. It was late as we got to the store and we needed to get home quickly, but I had a few tracts in the car so I grabbed them and passed them out to several workers who were there for closing. As we left, Gina looked back to see three people I had just handed the tracts to, open them and begin reading. You and I may never know what comes of those tracts, but dear friend, please, I know it’s the busiest time of the year, but God can use you to give the gift of eternal life to someone this holiday season even in the midst of your one-hundred thousandth trip to the store! Would you take the time, just a moment to pass out that tract, or even stop and share the love of God with someone in this busy time of year?
We thank you for you prayers and support! We hope and pray that God would bless you as you have blessed us! Would you continue to pray that God would keep us safe as we travel the roads on deputation, and that He would continue to bring us in contact with those whom we can be a blessing to? That He would continue to raise up young people who believe in Missions? And to raise our support level so that we may reach Indonesia with the Gospel of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ?
Merry Christmas to all, and to all a good night!
With love in our hearts,
In service to The King,
