In Weakness Find Strength

Dear Prayer Partners,

Anything changed?

Well, probably not too much. We have seen $500 come in for the trip. We only need $3500 now. But to be honest, I have been under the weather for a week now. I rest and feel okay, but then relapse into physical weakness. This ‘go slow’ routine is added on top of the other testings.
So our faith prayers continue.

What about the preparations?

God has worked out a lot of details for the tail end of the trip in Singapore. I am looking forward to meeting a number of people or ministries that have been using BFF material.

Translation of the notes is almost done – just two weeks to go!
We need lots of prayer. The coordinator up north in the mountains is concerned that storms will interfere with the meetings. We are praying for fair weather during the seminar as well as the day before and afterwards so the pastors can travel.

Some have asked if I have prepared the messages. I tell them, “Yes and no.” Yes, I have taught the three days worth of messages before. But no, God is training me right now through these prayers to keep trusting Him. Waiting times are strategic times to wait upon the Lord and see how He will provide.

Lastly, we are glad to say that our church has been gracious enough to open giving to BFF during this interim through them. If you want a tax receipt, do this.

Keep praying

Do keep us in prayer. We have lots of weakness right now. I am confident, however, that God will turn things just when the right time comes. No one likes unripe fruit. God waits for just the right moment.
