“I praise His name, He’s so good to me….”
In homeschool, we are reading the biography of George Müller. As a youth, he was always trying to avoid trouble, though his sneaky lies and joy in not getting caught eventually led him right where God wanted him to be. He eventually outgrew his games of cheating people and lived a life of serving God. He was steadfast in his obedience in trusting the Lord. He eventually opened many orphanages that served thousands of children in Bristol, England in the 1800’s. He even succeeded in running a school for hundreds of children outside of the many served at the orphanages. George prayed daily for the needs of those children, for their every need. Time and time again, they were down to the last crumb of food, not knowing where the next provision would come from, but it always came! George trusted in Him for all of his needs.
I am awe struck at George’s faithfulness in trusting for that many people! His trust and faith in God is an inspiration and a reminder to me of all the many blessings we have received. When we first arrived to Panama, I truly hoped in my heart that we would have to pack it up and leave because of insufficient funds! God used that moment in time to teach me, that was NOT His will! He wanted us there in Panama! And I needed to learn that more than anything! What a delight to learn, YES!, He does desire for us to serve there. He provided the means. This is my miracle folks! And yours, if you have ever prayed for us, encouraged us, and/or supported financially!
In order for us to sustain in Panama’ we are dependent upon others to meet our financial needs. We are currently up to about 70% pledged of our budget and need to be fully supported before launching into our next three year term to serve in Panama. George’s testimony is a reminder for me, that God stirs people to help impact the ministries here and abroad. Would you pray with us?
Dear Heavenly Father,
You know the needs of our family, and we are trusting you fully to meet those needs. We ask that you stir up the hearts of our dear brothers and sisters in Christ to be burdened to pray for the lost in Panama. For those that are still enslaved by witchcraft and false beliefs to be set free in the truth which comes through Jesus. We praise you for the works that you are doing in Panama, for the youth there, and their desire to share your love to others that have not heard the Good News. We thank you for the local church, strengthen them on their path to fulfill Kingdom work for your glory. God, we know you don’t need us in Panama, you can use anyone. Thank you for choosing us! Use us how you desire, we are yours and we trust that if it is your will to return to Panama, every provision will be met! We love you Jesus!
We praise you, God, we praise you, for your Name is near; people tell of your wonderful deeds. Psalm 75:1
Hoping your Christmas is full of love and laughter as week seek peace on earth and good will toward everyone!
