The Long Night

This will be our last night in the United States for awhile. We don't know how long God is calling us out into the missions field, but we are excited to be present for the awesome power and love that God has for all of us. Even in our circle of friends and family, people are being changed for the good. God is shaping their hearts and softening the hearts to His word. I've been blessed by how people are coming forth and asking to help support us, because they see the change in all four of our lives, and they want to be apart of it. I'm so encouraged by the excitement people are showing in response to sending out more missionaries. God Bless you all.

I just want to thank all of you for wanting to help do God's will. I am so proud that my father is realizing more and more each day that God doesn't prosper us so that we might sit around and admire the prosperity. He gave us prosperity so that we might also see those who are impoverished and seemingly without Hope and show them the love of Christ and the reality of Hope in Eternal Life. Every thing that we have is just on loan, it's not really ours. Our Father gives and takes away, but without him, there would be nothing. Praise be the Name of our Lord.

I never dreamed that God would work through us in such a way as to draw our families together so close. We are even seeing hearts being changed on Edna's side of the family. I will continue to be amazed with God's plan as we set out for Hungary tomorrow.
