O Mondays are blue just by nature. After the weekend the children need to go to
school and who wants to do that???? Not my children. After a weekend of limitless fun and games......... Twans always have her hands full trying to teach these boys. Not even to mention when they come home after school and there need to be homework. O,my, how will we get them big???? I guess all of us need to go through that, that is if we have children........ To make things more miserable for Gideon is the fact that a wedding is in its 4th day and still no end in sight. Loud music is an understatement. Makes Gideon a really worked-up boy and totally impossible to do school. O the joys of living in a foreign country.
I am leaving tomorrow on my first outreach for the year. Yip, squeezed this one in before I need to be put under the blade. I will go to Battambang next week and arrange for an operation. Please pray for us, a team from Youth Call, that will go with me to Kabal Domrey and into the jungle, to serve people with much needed medicines. Pray for safe journeys as the roads are really dangerous.
Please pray for Mientjie Ellis's daughter, Danelle. We do not always understand why things go wrong in pregnancies, but we know that we serve an Everlasting Loving God. Pray for the family to have peace and that God will give emotional strength, when needed.
Hear from my friend Archie vd Merwe that he is out of bed and on crutches. He truly is recovering fast. Pray that God will touch him in a very special way.
My friend Bazil Calitz is also back in the saddle again. Thanks to God for restoring him.
Started to visit Apo again. He is doing pretty well. I started him on Ozone treatment, and want to see what happens. Thanks to South East Asia Hub that gave this to us.
As usuall here is the prayer for Syria:
“You, Lord, brought me up from the realm of the dead; you spared me from going down to the pit.”
Thank You so much Jesus for those You have saved from eternal death. Thank You for those You have saved from living a life of hell here on earth. Jesus, to know You is something so special.
Hamad had a dream in Syria. In his dream, Jesus said to him, "You will go to the land of the Christians and you will find Me." He later traveled to Greece and then Europe. While he was on a boat to Greece, he had the same dream. Jesus said to him, “You will go to the land of the Christians and you will find Me.” He arrived in Holland, found a church and has now become a firm believer in Jesus. I knew him by his smile. :)
Jesus, thank You that it is You who draws people to You, who saves people from the pit of death. We cry out that You would show mercy to so many more by drawing them to You, saving not just their physical bodies but their souls too. Jesus, thank You for people like Hamad who now know you and love you. Jesus, I pray that he and other Syrians who know you would be bold in sharing the hope they have found in You! Thank You Jesus!
Thank you very much for praying for us on this Monday night.God Bless
