Century plant toppled over and dying, but sending out thousands of new plantsI was overwhelmed by the responses I received after my “Overload” post, and I just want to say thank you! Thank you for the encouragements, the prayers, the scriptures shared, and for your friendship/partnership as we walk this earth together and look for ways that we, hand in hand, can bring glory to God.
Prayers were answered, not in giving A’i perfect sight again, but her skin condition that she has suffered with for 2 years is amazingly better after just a couple of days of treatment from our Gamboula doctor. She is encouraged. Prayers were answered, not in reversing the loss of Faadi’s baby, but she is going home today, to be reunited with her family after a 2 month absence. She was beaming yesterday afternoon as she told me how she looked forward to seeing her 2 little girls today. She is healing very well after her c-section. She is hopeful. Prayers were answered, not in a horde of people coming to know the Messiah, but in a simple conversation with a couple of my friends I learned that they had heard a Jesus following teacher in a lesson (I think on the radio) at the end of Ramadan and they’re interested in learning about the bible, and we will start simple bible stories as soon as we get the okay from their brothers. We are blessed to be here, to share however we can about the Lord’s amazing, deep, infinite love for each of us.
As Roy & I think about the fact that this is our last term, we want to finish well, to seize each day, to leave seeds planted, flowers budding, fruit being eaten, or at the very least the aroma of possibility. Please pray for God’s love to be known.
