Faithfulness
FAITHFUL!  During the last seven months, that is what the Father has been to me.  He has revealed Himself to me in ways I have never known before.  He has pulled me from lowest of lows.  He reminds of his love for the all peoples of this world.  He has given me encouragement from His Word daily.  He has allowed me to begin to speak a language, that at times I thought would be impossible.  Many days I am in awe of the ways He has taken care of me.  He is a faithful Father!  

This past month many of you pryed for me as I took my second language evaluation. Again, the Father was faithful and your pryers were heard.  I received a level of Advanced Mid on my evaluation.  On that day, a lot of tears were shed as I thanked Him for his faithfulness in what seemed at times to be an impossible task.  

After my evaluation, I was able to take a vacation to visit some friends in Rome, Italy.  We had an incredible time just being together. We laughed, we cried, we prayed together, we relaxed, and they showed me around their beautiful new home. Time in their home encouraged me so much. Thankful to the Father for brothers and sisters in Christ. There are a couple pictures below.

Requests

  • for a Bible Study that takes place in my home on Tuesday evenings.  This week we are gong to start an accountability portion to encourage the young ladies to share the Good News.
  • for my mother as she makes the trip to come visit this month.  She will be arriving on September 14th.
  • for Michael, a Sunny believer, who is having health issues.

Also, October 1, 2017 is the Day of Praying and Fasting for the Sunny people. Another colleague, who works among the Sunny, has created a pryer guide for this day.  It is an excellent tool for personal or chrch-wide use.  I will attach the document below and encourage everyone to print it and use for your guide, as we ask the Father to grow His Kingdom among the Sunny.
