Pray BFF Letter #157
Satruday, September 12, 2009
Get ready! Get set! Go!
Dear Support Team,
Amazingly, God has again provided for this trip's finances. And we want to thank you because it is you who are willing to be part of God's great work. The finances, however, are just the preliminaries. The most important part is to come - the training.
Each trip is important.
Each seminar is significant.
Each message is life-changing.
God's provision is a reminder: as we continue to pray, God will continue to work. In order to encourage you to pray, here is a simple calendar. This trip is a day short of two weeks but is very, very intensive. Right now I expect to speak 25 times. There will only be two repeat messages. I will constantly need to be preparing for the next several messages.
I am exhausted! We printed nearly 3,000 pages yesterday and many more hundreds today. Fortunately, some of my children help in the assembling process of those many pages. (I will not take all these printed materials with me.) Almost ready to go.
Thank the Lord for financial provision for the India trip.
It is exciting to see how God has strengthened me to prepare for the many messages.
Times with the Lord have been really precious (going through 1 and 2 Samuel).
Opportunity to train the young Bengali church leaders.
The calendar marks many traveling situations. Safety, health, protection from swine flu alerts.
Pastor J. (coordinator) is getting married on Oct 10th. Financial provision and salvation for hundreds of unbelievers who will attend.
Strength and wisdom for Linda and family. Bucknell Homeschool Academy has begun with 6 students. (The children are glad to skip Chinese class when teacher(Paul) is away!)
Paul needs focus for each of the 25 messages.
Genuine, powerful work of the Holy Spirit in the lives of the leaders in both seminars.
G-20 (leaders of 20 countries) will be held in Pittsburgh Sept. 24-25. Pray for family and city. I return home on the second day.
