This will be the last newsletter I will write while I am in Peru. The next one I will write will be when I am in the STATES! Please pray for me as I have only 17 days left here in Peru before I board a plane to go the states for a time of sabbatical and furlough. I have so many things to do. Would you please pray specifically for:
- August 18th, 17 mormon missionaries will be coming over on their off day to eat tacos and play games. This is ONLY something God could put together. Please pray that I will share the gospel with truth and grace and that they would be receptive.
- I have several people I need to talk about salvation with before I leave. Please pray that they would understand and put their faith in Christ. These people have heard the gospel for years through Para Peru ministry; please pray that these seeds would come to fruition. A couple of these conversations are going to be extremely hard for various reasons. Please pray for me for wisdom.
- Please pray that I would be able to get everything set up with appointments and speaking engagements in the States. I still have a few more openings to speak at churches that I would like to fill up. If you would like for me to share with your church; I would be happy to do so!
- Also, Elar, my intern will be coming to the states for 3 1/2 weeks while I am there. Please pray for our church as we will be both be gone for almost a month. Pray that leaders will step up and really take the lead in the ministry. There is so much to do to prepare for furlough, but I know this is exactly what God has for me to do at this time.
I would love to see you while I am home, send me a message on facebook or by email so we can set up a time to hang out. Elar is friends with many of you guys too, and he is looking forward to hanging out with people that he has met on mission trips over the years. Let me know if you would like me to set up a time to get together with him. I am so excited to see my family, friends, and eat some Chick-Fil-A! See you soon!
