It is a truly beautiful day in Maine today! The temperature is in the 70s, the sun is shining brightly, and there is a lovely breeze blowing. My dad’s barbecuing some chicken out on the grill, and the scent is wafting through the window as I am typing upstairs. I’m thanking the Lord for my dad’s health and that he’s outside grilling! His surgery went without incident and he is recovering, though it’s going to take some extra time. Thank you for praying for him, and please continue to pray for patience, since doctors orders leave him very limited in activity for the duration of the summer. That’s pretty hard for a man that loves to be outside planting a garden and doing yard work.
I’m grateful to the Lord for safe travels over the past few weeks, and for good visits to my supporting churches. It is good to be able to share what is going on in Togo and to thank churches and individuals in person for their faithfulness to support the work in Togo through prayer and giving. Please pray for good opportunities to express the personnel needs for Togo. Maybe the Lord has specific individuals in mind in some of the churches I am visiting.
I’m glad the Lord uses ordinary people for His work! This came to mind as I have been enjoying the oft maligned weed—the ordinary dandelion—over the past couple of weeks. I think there’s a parallel!
May the Lord bless you richly as you anticipate worshipping Him on His day tomorrow.
