Dear Family in Christ,
Happy, beautiful fall! We pray God’s richest blessings over your family this season. Truly, we are humbled by the Kingdom friendships He’s knit together so perfectly for His own glory and renown. May we be worthy carriers of Your most precious Gospel, Holy Father!
We are doing well in the beautiful fall season out East..now having to bundle up the boys when we go out. Isaiah is fascinated with the leaves everywhere and the Canadian ducks. 🙂
We are coming up to our halfway stretch with our Harvest training. We sure feel your prayer. Paul leaves with the Harvest planter fellowship to Michigan next week for 4 days. Paul is thriving with the training and the new wonderful friendships in Harvest leadership–seems like such a good fit for us, we are thankful for the ways they challenge and stretch us to press in.
Please pray for Paul’s trip to India November 17th until December 4th. He will have overlapping teams coming out for projects, camps and teaching our staff as well as Harvest coming out to scope out an area for where we will plant Harvest India! Please pray for God to rise up a Godly group of servants to help start the core group of our church. Please pray for Him to bring forward servants for the all departments—worship, counseling, kids ministry, Women’s ministry, etc. We are trusting God for great things.
I have had the great privilege to share here with the Harvest women and hope to speak again early December before I leave for Phoenix. Please pray for the Lord to use me in my weakness with the long, cold days and wild boys now 1 and 2 1/2. So thankful to be living in community here with the wonderful Harvest planter families. God is good to give us the fellowship. He has also met our needs for a doctor for Isaiah all the way to covering each of us in winter clothes from precious friends from church here. Such a GOOD Shepherd we follow after!
Thank you for remembering in prayer the mother church, prison ministry and camps all running smoothly back on the field by our family and staff. Please pray for God to open a way for Paul’s parents to return with him to America for the birth of our 3rd baby boy. Baby Hudson James is due at the end of the year and I am anticipating another healthy home birth back in Phoenix. Paul will graduate the 23rd of Dec. and return to Phoenix.
We praise God for His mercy as a cyclone hit the small house on our land that Paul’s Uncle, Aunt and their grand children live in as his Uncle guards the land, working as a watchman and cultivating the land. Lightning struck, shattering the roof above them and two small children as they ate dinner on the floor with their hands. They were untouched–it is truly a miracle telling of our Merciful Shepherd, keeping His flock. Your prayers are moving the heavens in ways you can’t even imagine as I send this email. We feel your prayer covering and we feel your love!! Without Him we surely can do NOTHING!
“Turn to Me and be saved, all the ends of the earth;
For I am God, and there is no other.” Is. 45:22
Thank you for our prayers for our girls in India–they are all doing well in their classes and cannot wait to move to their new home next year. Elizabeth needs surgery this year for a deformity she was born with, we are trusting God for this.
