I am so thankful for your prayers throughout my travels over the past few months. Thank you for caring, and for believing in our prayer-hearing, prayer-answering God. I have had an amazing time reporting in churches, working at camp, visiting with my family, visiting with friends, and just enjoying being in America.
I’ll admit . . . my heart struggles because I am so patriotic and thankful for my country, and yet we all share burdens for the direction our homeland is taking.
Can the Lord revive our nation?
Here is the most epic rhetorical question of all time, asked by God Himself: “Is there anything too hard for Me?” ( Jeremiah 32:27)
He can and does answer on behalf of just one person. I am witness to it at this moment!! You have prayed for funds for New Testaments and tracts; you have prayed for safety for me as I have been traveling; you have prayed for health needs of my dad. Of the approximately $9,000 needed for the printed materials I asked you to pray for, more than half has been given. Over thousands of miles of travel, the Lord has granted safety. He has enabled me to communicate His work in churches. My dad is recovering well from his surgery. I am humbled by His grace and thrilled that He answers prayer in His way and in His time.
Can He revive America? “Is the Lord’s hand shortened, that it cannot save?” (Isaiah 59:1?)
I was in Washington DC just three weeks ago. At the Washington Monument, I lay flat on the ground to capture the photo below. You can see the flags are flying at half mast in memory of our five fallen soldiers who were slain in Chattanooga, Tennessee, where I am currently.
Pray for our country! Let the evidence of The Word answer the question: “Is there anything too hard for the Lord?” (Genesis 18:14)
Please continue to pray for the rest of the funding for tracts and New Testaments for Togo. Ask the Lord to see us through the remaining weeks in the States, as I spend time with my sister, visit one more church, visit Answers in Genesis, get my leg veins repaired (Sept 2), and do all that needs to be done before leaving for Togo. I have my ticket for September 28. Pray for grace and peace for my parents in Maine, and for all of the family as we anticipate parting once again.
