“Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest.”
Please pray for these friends who also served in Brazil while our daughter served in there. They are retired now, but still serve for short assignments when needed.
Please pray for us as we leave early Monday morning, February 6th, on a small mission plane to go to a town named Jacareacanga. We will be there through Friday, February 10th translating for a theological training course for pastors, mostly from the Munduruku people group. Pray for safety, good health, clarity of mind and speech and for open hearts. We’re not sure where we’ll be sleeping – whether on mattresses in the church, hammocks, someone’s home, but we thank God for the opportunity to be part of what He’s doing in that area.
READ THE BIBLE
Matthew 28: 1-15
“My life testifies in Jesus’ resurrection because people can see . . . .”
What a great day! God sent lots of willing and hard workers. We accomplished everything we hoped to get done, got everything back in our storeroom, and got the fellowship hall arranged for the next event. Thanks to those who chose to spend their Saturday morning working in God’s House. Yesterday, we removed packaging, packed pencil bags, and filled 400 folders in preparation for the next step in the process.
God sent us diligent workers. The most common question to me yesterday was “What do you want me to do next?” Our church is blessed with great people who can picture “Shoeboxes” arriving in the hands of boys and girls all around the world.
Prayer Focus Today
Let’s focus on the testimony of our life as others see us. We all need some improvement. Let’s begin today to make the changes that God would approve of.
