In the same way, the Spirit helps us in our weakness. We do not know what we ought to pray for, but the Spirit himself intercedes for us through wordless groans. And he who searches our hearts knows the mind of the Spirit, because the Spirit intercedes for God’s people in accordance with the will of God. ~ Romans 8:26,27
Throughout our time in ministry in Ecuador, we have been so impressed about the need for prayer in our ministry. It has been through God’s goodness and providence that we have been able to go to Ecuador and back, serve a short-term as missionaries, be so blessed in ministry and have every need met along the way. It seems as though every single time we had a significant need that arose, whether it be emotional, social, financial or whatever other type, God came, saw and met our need in a way that only He could.
You all, our family, friends and supporters, have been His instruments in making the difference in our ministry. Through your prayers, giving and support of us and our ministry, you all have made a significant difference in meeting our every little need. We can never, ever thank you all enough for your faithful commitment and support for us. THANK YOU FOR FAITHFULLY PRAYING FOR US.
Just recently, we have been reminded again about the continued need for ongoing prayer in our lives in ministry. Spiritual warfare is at battle all around us. The devil does not want us to return to Ecuador and that our ministry continue. He doesn’t want us to partner with IPEE in creating new ministries to at-risk children and through medicine. In addition, we just have been overwhelmed by the amount of continuous, monthly support that we need to raise before we can return. WE CAN’T DO IT! The good thing is: GOD CAN!!! Where humans fall short, God always prevails. We just want to ask you all to pray that in this year that we will be able to invite and recruit the necessary amount of new ministry partners that we are able to return to Ecuador when we are planning. Though this task seems extremely daunting to us at this point, we know that anything is possible with God.
THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR MINISTRY OF PRAYER FOR US AND OUR MINISTRY!!!
Please know that we are also praying for you. We have a list of all of our supporters and have a calendar setup where we are praying for one of you each day. So, please know that you also are in our prayers!
This is the confidence we have in approaching God: that if we ask anything according to his will, he hears us. And if we know that he hears us—whatever we ask—we know that we have what we asked of him. ~ 1st John 5:14,15
