Before embarking on his missionary journey to India, William Carey told Andrew Fuller, “I will go down into the pit, if you will hold the ropes.” I get to hold the ropes for my fellow servants around the world, and I am grateful for how friends like you hold the ropes for me.
How long has it been since you felt s-t-r-e-t-c-h-e-d? May 25-27 and June 1-2 our team gathers again to begin deciding how we are going to deploy ourselves over the next 5-10 years. We are excited about serving our worldwide partnership of disciple-making movements. We are also stretched by how so few of us can best serve so many. It is critical that we gain a very clear picture of what each of us is responsible to do so that we can be focused and faithful. Please pray that God will fill our team with wisdom from above. (James 3:17)
Prayer Update: God so blessed our Missions Work Group meetings last week that we actually finished our work by mid-afternoon each day. That’s unheard of! Here’s a link to an amazing video showing how God continues to answer the prayers of our children in Fortaleza: God Breaks into the Club.
