We know many of you are faithfully praying for us as we prepare. The challenges and difficulties we’ve faced this past week have seemed more so than other trips. Usually the greater the problems, the more fruit the Lord gives on the trip. We would be grateful if you would to continue to pray as we begin this final day. My heart has been so blessed to see Dad’s trust as we face challenges. He has a steadfast spirit and heart, fully accepting of each challenge as an opportunity to rest in the Lord and delight in Him. It’s easy to live happily when everything is going well, but what about when things don’t?
I’m reminded again of how none of us are guaranteed another day. A sweet lady at the nursing home is at this moment dying. After church, our family gathered around her bedside and sang two hymns. It was heart-wrenching as we saw her struggling to give up her earthly body. May we all live each day like it could be our last!
The Lord specifically used several blessings over the past few days to encourage us, and one in particular was so amazing that it left us all in awe of how incredible our Savior is.
Thank you for standing with us in prayer!
Closing with this wonderful passage of Scripture…
“Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? shall tribulation, or distress, or persecution, or famine, or nakedness, or peril, or sword? … For I am persuaded, that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor principalities, nor powers, nor things present, nor things to come, Nor height, nor depth, nor any other creature, shall be able to separate us from the love of God, which is in Christ Jesus our Lord” (Romans 8:35, 38-39).
