Happy Thanksgiving! We pray you had a great time celebrating all that the Lord is doing in your life. What are you thankful for this year???
Here are a few things that we are praising God for this year:
1. You! We are so thankful to have you in our lives. Your prayers, support, love, and encouragement mean the world to us. We will be traveling back to the US in mid-December to spend a few months connecting with each of you and sharing the vision the Lord has given us for the future. We will be in the following states: South Dakota, Montana, Wisconsin, New York, and are also planning to spend some time in the Washington, DC area. Even if you live outside of these places, we would love to see you! Drop us a line and let us know if you would like to meet with us.
2. The work here! God has been moving in really cool ways. I have been leading a monthly art gathering for college students. I have been teaching the students through art that they are made in God’s image and that they can hear His voice. Last weekend we were honored to teach 25 local leaders about praise and worship. It was so fun to teach together and see hearts respond to Papa.
My brother-in-law, 2 local brothers, and I were able to hike to a nearby village and share the Truth with people living there. It was a powerful time of outreach, but also really significant in raising up the local brothers to do the work.
My wife is continuing her language studies and feeling more and more confident in her ability to understand others and express herself. His grace is abundant!
Climbing, a local brother I have trained over the years, was back in town last week to have an eye surgery. It was a successful operation and he is already back on the field making disciples and sharing with those who have never heard the truth before!
Last, but certainly not least, we have been honored to lead a couple of praise sets each week. Our first ministry is to Him!
3. Him! Amidst all the changes and transitions that have already happened and those that are fast approaching, we are especially thankful to have a Father who is the same yesterday, today, and forever! His steadiness brings such refreshing and rest. In the midst of uncertain times, we can be certain that He never leaves us, He desires our good, He is faithful, and His love endures forever! Thank you for your constancy, Papa!
