This year's time together was wonderful and much was accomplished to continue the momentum of where we believe God is taking us in the years ahead. I want to encourage all of you who read this blog to prayerfully consider giving to this ministry monthly. Don't miss out on the opportunity to help us keep our missionary families on their field of service to reach the world for the Gospel of Jesus Christ. God is putting more missionaries on the field daily. They may even be your own family members. This I can promise you: At some point, they will desire an oasis and need one! A place to get away from their daily life circumstances. A place to regroup, get refreshed, be poured into spiritually, physically, emotionally, and mentally. A place where it is safe to seek counsel and empty out their hearts. Help us to increase our time on the field ministering to them by supporting us on a monthly basis.
We are zeroing in on our location and dates sometime late in April for Belize. There is still room for team members so please let me know if you sense that God is pricking your heart about this trip. Thank you to those who are already contacting me.
Patty and I attended our 2nd week of the Perspectives class. Lesson #2 was on exploring God's Purpose for Himself, which is to bring about His greater glory by drawing to Himself the worship of every tribe, language, people, and nation. You realize this doesn't take place unless we who are blessed (saved) become a blessing (instruments of salvation) to others! I love watching these lessons build because God is a God of order!!
And they sang a new song, saying, "Worthy are you to take the scroll and to open its seals, for you were slain, and by your blood you ransomed people for God from every tribe and language and people and nation. Revelation 5:9
When is the last time you really just worshiped Him for His name’s sake . . . because He alone is God and He is worthy to be praised!! Not just on Sunday morning, Sunday night, Wednesday night, or I have to worship Him but I get to worship Him! He is worthy to be praised and worshiped from our heart and spirit!! Wow! Just think of the last time you really were in a place of worship that was filled with the Spirit, and people really were worshiping Him from the heart and spirit.
This week, today, this minute, take time to worship Him! He is worthy no matter our circumstance! He is worthy for His name’s sake alone!!
