THANKS!

Just wanted to post a big 'thanks!" to those of you who pray for us as we travel share our burden, etc. Thank you, thank you, thank you! Our last meeting went wonderfully. We enjoyed meeting various new people who blessed us beyond necessity...it's all too wonderful and enjoyable being with fellow Christians. Fellowship is such a sweet, sweet thing. No one came down with any kind of bug or cold and Josefine traveled well. We got to see dear friends and make new ones and share our love for Germany and for Germans. We pray that it was a productive meeting and that people were able to sense the need in Germany as deeply as we do.

My favorite part of meetings (besides meeting new people, of course) is sharing my testimony. I just stand in awe at the amazing grace God has bestowed on me and my life. He spared me...pulled my feet out of the miry clay...and put them on the Solid Rock. I continue to see God's limitless faithfulness in my life and I always start there...the moment I believed...trusted Christ as my Savior. His faithfulness is my steadfastness...from beginning to end.

Well, I must say 'thank you' again - you are more of a blessing to us than you know!

Please continue to pray for:

*good health
*the house project (done by the end of the year)
*meetings scheduled (fill up the calendar!)
*the car situation (need a "new" deputation-mobile)
*support increase (currently at 27.5%, goal to be at 50% by the end of the year)

Many of these things might sound lofty...but, as Jim said at our last meeting...there is nothing too lofty for our God!

There really is nothing too lofty for God! I am the one with the inhibited mindset and goals.

Like when I started praying that our van would last until at least 150,000 miles... then I realized that what if I am asking for 150,000 miles but God was thinking more like 250,000? ;)
