Did not start out good this morning getting moving from Siem Reap. While being still in town, I struggle to start the car to the point where I called Toinette. She and Gideon came and prayed for the car and off I went. Shows you what prayer can do. Stopped on the road to help some guys on tractors out of trouble. Their cargo were loads of wood, so heavy that they could not get up a small incline from the jungle. The one tractor was already in the ditch when I arrived. Tow-rope out and gave these guys a hand was a very good deed for the day. All of them came and thanked me afterwards for the help. What a pleasure to help them out.
Please pray for my outreach tomorrow. Just heard that a team from Ywam will join us tomorrow to a small church in the so called jungle, that’s been cut away already. As usual we will do some needed medical checkups.
Continue to pray for our sister Angela and Argie. She is out of hospital already and at home. Pray for them for peace and comfort in a real tuff time of their lives.
Our prayer for Syria:
Psalm 36:5 “Your love, Lord, reaches to the heavens, your faithfulness to the skies.
Thank you Jesus that Your love reaches to the heavens! Thank You that Your faithfulness reaches to the skies. Jesus, thank You that You are a compassionate God, pouring down rain on the righteous and the unrighteous! God, there is no limit to Your compassion, no limit to Your love, no limited to Your unmerited favour.
The last few weeks I’ve found hard to write with such ‘strong’ verses but at the same time I am overwhelmed that God has such love for rebel fighters, for muslim leaders, for unjust fathers.
Father, I praise You that You have not turned Your face away from Syria or from Syrians. Father, I thank You that You have a plan and a purpose for every one of them. May they know Your love and Your faithfulness that stretches as far as the heavens.
Thank you for your faithfulness in praying for us.
