I don’t know about you but I find that one of the most encouraging things a person can say is that they are praying for me. I could say that “because I’m a ‘missionary’ living in a foreign country I need a lot of prayer”. But the truth is, I need a lot of prayer because I am a human being living on this earth.
Justin & I are broken people who need a lot of prayer. We need God’s direction in the trajectory of our ministry and guidance in dealing with coworkers and students; wisdom balancing ministry, marriage, friendship; A revelation of His love so that we can truly love each other and witness through our marriage; God’s provision for our finances and wisdom on practical decisions that need to be made; perseverance when the path is not yet cultivated; His intervention in providing friends and community for us in this foreign country; prayer for depth and intimacy in our personal relationships with God; understanding of the gifts He has placed in us and the purposes for them; growth in our immaturity and insecurity; healing from our sin… and the list could go on and on!
So, we were inspired by your prayers to pray! We now have a jar full of Popsicle sticks with the names of our family, supporters and some friends/coworkers. We are committed to, on a regular-basis, pick-a-pop and PRAY! We would love to hear your prayer-requests so that we can pray more specifically for your needs.
Finally, in addition to the encouragement of being prayed for, we also desire to hear the things God is revealing to you during your times of prayer. If He directs you towards a specific topic; lays a word of encouragement on your heart; leads you to a verse or passage; or gives you a word of edification, instruction or exhortation; WE WANT TO HEAR ABOUT IT!!!
Thank YOU for praying ❤
