Soul winning is more than a method. It's the calling for all Christians to share what was shared with them. It is so exciting to see someone receive Christ. It is also heart wrenching when you share your faith with one who's on the edge of eternity and they deny Christ. Such was the case recently. Rather than quenching our zeal, this should push us to witness more. We never know when it is the last chance for our “neighbor”.
A few days later, Chelli and I were at the store humming a song that we had sung in church the previous Sunday. As we came to the register, we stopped humming, but to our surprise the cashier quickly responded with, “Please don't stop. Your song is very comforting.” As each of us live our faith in Word and in deed, it will not go unnoticed.
The last months have been filled with change and challenge starting with a new address. We now live about 5 kilometers down the road from our old apartment. Two of our girls were here for the summer and helped with the move. Not only were they a blessing to have on our moving team, but it was such a blessing to have them step back into our music ministry as well.
The day I gave our keys back to our old landlord was the day that I had the worst of my 3, what I later found out to be, gallbladder attacks. Chelli had to take me to the emergency room in the middle of the night. A few hours later they operated. That pushed my cataract surgery off for another month. It also hampered our move in.
My first cataract surgery was on Tuesday of last week. In the recovery room, the attending doctor noticed our Church Logo on my shirt and mentioned he received Christ in the states while studying. Praising the Lord that someone witnessed to him so many years ago so that God could have in place to do that surgery just when I needed it.
It looks like I will be seeing 20/20 with the new lenses. God willing, I will only need glasses for reading. When it is all finished, I will have had five surgeries in the space of a year. I could do without another surgery for a while.
Our church renovation, after the water pipe breakage in December, is finally finished. It is exciting to get our building back to full functionality. We are preaching through ISamuel and are blessed to see how, even in the darkest of times, God has a plan to give light.
We have several prayer requests:
Finances for a car $10,000, New support for the rise in living costs, Health, Wisdom, Spiritual Fruit, Church Growth
Special thanks for the support and the special offerings during these uncertain times.
