While I'm waiting...I will serve you

"Wait for the Lord; 
be strong and take heart and wait for the Lord." 
-Psalm 27:14   

Waiting. These last two months have been full of waiting. Strong. The Lord has given me strength so many times to just keep going. Take heart. Hope for the future, God has never failed me and He won't start now. 

Thank you for your prayers and your support. You are all a HUGE blessing. This last Friday I got the phone call and was told that I was again denied the visa and along with it I can't reapply for 6 months. WHY??? I don't understand what God is doing but I keep trusting and seeking Him in this period of waiting. 

Marcia and Guillermo (co-workers) and I are currently at FIM (fellowship international mission) in Pennsylvania until October 5. We are meeting the new general director and going over ministry plans and talking about the next few months. God is good and this time with our team at the home office has been a blessing. Lots of exciting things going to happen. 

For the rest of the year I will be in the Iowa area, mostly NW Iowa. Living in Paullina and helping in an ESL classroom (english as a second language) in Sioux Center. Also will get connected with a local Spanish ministry at a church.  Then after the first of the year we are praying over options to see where God leads. It is still my heart's desire to return to Venezuela at some point. 

Prayers and Praises: 

  • Praise for this time at FIM and a safe trip
  • Pray for Venezuela 
  • Praise for time to connect with family and friends
  • Pray for Guillermo's trip to Venezuela (October-November)
  • Praise for new friends in Sioux Center
  • Pray for God to open doors with the visa situation. 
  • Praise God for His goodness and unfailing love. 
  • Pray for wisdom for what is next. 
Thank you again for your support and prayers!!
