Let’s start by talking about volcanoes. I am no expert on them, but I know that when the pressure builds, the natural result is an eruption. God has been doing a work in our hearts, under the surface, for a long time. Our reasonable response to that working is to go back to Indonesia. As we have stepped out by faith, God is now propelling us back there.
We are really blown away, pun intended, by the moving of God! We have had 4 churches take us on in the past two weeks! We are traveling full time as well as scheduling meetings. We are now scheduling to be with churches in 2020 for Missions Conferences, Mission Emphasis Sundays as well as during regular services. We still have a few openings in 2019. Please let me know if you would like to have us come to your church and share our burden, our plan and the need of Indonesia.
Pray and Praise
This is where we ask that you take us to the Lord in prayer. When we all talk to God we can praise Him for His goodness and pray for His help. Here are 3 prayer requests and praises together.
•People to be saved – A praise that my wife and I had a good, though brief conversation with Marquisha at Walmart. Pray that that she would come to church. She wrote down mine and Elizabeth’s names.
•Believers to be encouraged- Churches are not exempt from discouragement. We are asking God to use us to encourage pastors and church members. They are going through trials and attacks. I am thankful to God for every opportunity to speak in a church.
•People to surrender to God – I was blessed to speak with two men this past week who both said that they are open to becoming a missionary. Not only that, but they are already serving God in their church. Praise the Lord!
The Indo Info (Learn a little bit more each week about Indonesia)
Have you ever heard about the Ring of Fire? It is a major area in the basin of the Pacific Ocean where many earthquakes and volcanic eruptions occur. It runs right through Indonesia.
Here is a short video about the Ring of Fire.
