Now to him who is able to do far more abundantly than all that we ask or think, according to the power at work within us, to him be glory in the church and in Christ Jesus throughout all generations, forever and ever. Amen. Ephesians 3:20-21
This last Monday we got our latest donation report which indicated that we have hit our support goal of $30,000 (and are actually probably above that goal)!
The living God from Whom and through Whom and to Whom are all things has stirred up the hearts of many to give and to give generously! We serve a real God and an awesome God Who has done far more abundantly than all that Ashley and I have asked or thought! We did not expect to be fully funded before we left for the year in such a short amount of time, yet the Triune God has glorified Himself by providing for this opportunity for the advancement of the gospel through the training of pastors to rightly handle His Word.
Ashley and I are truly humbled and feel now more than ever our need to keep trusting in our awesome God for grace to be useful for His service. We do not have the resources or the strength or the wisdom to accomplish the task set before us…but He does! He is a good Father Who gives good gifts to His children, to those Who wait on Him!
Ashley and I are also very joyful! We rejoice to be used as tools of God and to watch Him do His work! There is truly no greater joy than getting to see the Sovereign God display His glory in amazing ways!
Thank you dear friends and family for partnering with us in this strategic opportunity! Please continue to partner with us in prayer. Though a tangible hurdle has been overcome, the real battle is spiritual.
Finally, be strong in the Lord and in the strength of his might. Put on the whole armor of God, that you may be able to stand against the schemes of the devil. For we do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the cosmic powers over this present darkness, against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly places….praying at all times in the Spirit, with all prayer and supplication. To that end, keep alert with all perseverance, making supplication for all the saints, and also for me, that words may be given to me in opening my mouth boldly to proclaim the mystery of the gospel Ephesians 6:10-12, 18-19
We desperately need your prayers to our great God over the course of this entire year! Please keep visiting our prayer request page which we will try to keep up to date with our current prayer requests.
