He that dwells in the secret place of the most high, shall abide under the shadow of the Almighty. And we say of The Lord, 'He is our refuge, and our fortress, our God in Him we trust.' (My paraphrase of Psalm 91)
Many of you have expressed your love and prayerful concern as we prepare for our trip to Sri Lanka. We leave on Tuesday, October 7th. Your prayers are so important to us. There is a strength, a comfort, in knowing that God listens and answers the prayers of His people.
It is true that there is a lot going on in this world we live in. It is also true that our God has promised to keep us from the evil in this world. (John 17:15) This gives us great peace.
We are being wise and keeping our physical bodies strong and rested, while avoiding obvious dangers.
There is a compulsion to go. A sense of urgency. If we don't take the love and life of Jesus Christ to hurting people - who will?
The lyrics of this song stir my heart. The song is titled "Hosanna" and sung by the group Selah. Listen with your heart. Lyrics
Heal my heart and make it clean
Open up my eyes to the things unseen
Show me how to love
Like You have loved me
Break my heart for what breaks yours
Everything I am for Your kingdom's cause
As I walk from earth into eternity
Our mission is clear; Share His love with those who are considered 'the Least of These,' and encourage the faithful pastors, evangelists and missionaries who live full time to serve them.
Your love, support and prayers are the fuel that keeps us going. Thank you! From the depths of our hearts.
Pat and Gary
