Dear Fellow Laborers,
We rejoice that we had another full month of meetings. We were excited to be in churches in Tennessee, Maryland, South Carolina, Georgia, and Florida. Thank you to each church that allowed us to be a part of your service or mission conference. Our family is so blessed by the many acts of love toward us as we travel the road.
As we travel, we love meeting new people. The friendships that God is giving us through this time means so much to us. We pray that God will use us to encourage others in their walk with the Lord. Elizabeth and I speak to many about prayerfully considering if God would have them serve as foreign missionaries. Will you please pray about this part of our ministry? Pray that the Lord would give us wisdom in these conversations. We can’t call anyone into the ministry. If we could, there would be a lot more missionaries to Indonesia. Yet, we can talk to people who are already willing and praying about their service to the Lord. I received a text message from one church that we were with this month that a young man has surrendered to be a missionary. That fills my heart with joy and excitement! God is still sending laborers out.
The change in weather has been enjoyable. Of course, it was coolest in Maryland, but Georgia is also enjoying milder temperatures. Even though we enjoy autumn, please pray that this will be the last one we have before returning to Indonesia. We thank the Lord for the multiple new churches that have partnered with us this month. We also appreciate our supporters who help us be full time on deputation as we return to Indonesia.
God has given us 40% of our needed support! We are working hard to save up for our setup fund. If you are interested in helping with this need and would like more details, please contact me.
Reaching Indonesia for Christ,
Josh, Elizabeth, Hannah, Joseph and Olivia Ewing
