Trip of a Lifetime
This past month has been an incredible time.  The Father gave my mom the opportunity to visit me in Nation.  This was her first time leaving America, and she was taking it on alone!  I was so nervous (thank you for lifting her up), but she said “He’s got this” and didn’t look back.  We have had an incredible time together.  I have shown her around my home, introduced her to my friends, we’ve shared His Word together, and laughed so much!  The time has been incredibly sweet!
 
This past month went by very fast.  B!ble study at my house has been going very well.  Every lady has been faithful to go out and tell the story they learned every week.  We praise the Father together as we listen to each others’ reports of His Word going out.  I am preparing to go to a training for the month of October in a neighboring country.  This training will help me better understand National culture, refine my focus for my ministry, and help me to continue to adapt to this new lifestyle.  I will meet some new friends, which I am really excited about.
 
Requests

  • The B!ble study ladies as I am gone, that they would have a desire to go out and keep sharing
  • The upcoming training that I will be attending
  • My mother’s trip home this Friday
  • Michael, a Local believer, who is struggling with his health

Also, please remember October 1, 2017 is the Day of Praying and Fasting for the Local people. Another colleague, who works among the Locals, 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 Locals.
