Overwhelmed and Overwhelming

**Prayer Update**

Good morning friends,

I woke up this morning at 3:47 am feeling anxious and overwhelmed.  This is not a very common thing for me so I began to pray and give my worries over to God. 

I felt relieved but couldn’t get back to sleep so I’ve been sitting in the kitchen at my in-laws house for the past several hours reflecting alone.

God has been so good to us over the past 9 years as we’ve lived and worked in Wales but the burden of fund raising never seems to lessen. 

I know that there is a historic perception about missionaries as being people of “great faith” but even the most faithful people have doubts and worries that seem overwhelming.  I’m thankful, however, that God’s faithfulness is not contingent upon our ability to exercise our faith. 

God is good, and God commands His blessing- life forevermore- because it is in His nature not because we are worthy or have done anything to earn it.  Our response is only to receive it with a humble heart, giving thanks to our eternal Father.

Would you continue to be in prayer with us during our last week in the States as we spend time with family and seek to add financial supporters?  We have a $1,500 a month shortfall that needs to be addressed.

Thank you for your prayers and continued support.

Every blessing,
