We may be far away from Amdu at the moment, but we are still vitally connected to what is going on there. The concerns, joys, successes and trials of our team are ours as well.
In our last post, we asked you to be praying for our teammates during their language and culture evaluations. We are happy to share that everyone did very well on the language portion. One of them is even into the final level on the language learning scale! There are still many things that need to be investigated regarding the culture, and that comes with hard work and time. Our team must be able to not only clearly communicate words in the Amdu language but also understand the thinking behind why the Amdu people do what they do. It is a big task and we need the Lord’s wisdom each step of the way!
Some recent happenings in Amdu have reminded us that we truly are in a spiritual battle there. The people are happy to have us there, but at times issues come up as a result of differing cultural thinking. Again, we need the Lord’s wisdom as we live and work among these people and seek to understand how they view the world. Satan does not want the Amdu people to hear the message of the Gospel! Our team is in his territory and we know he would like us out of there.
Please pray for our team as we work in this very needy place.
Please pray that we would continue to develop strong relationships with the people and that even now the Lord would be preparing the ground for the seeds of the Gospel that are being planted even before we can communicate fully in the Amdu language.
Please pray for continued unity as a team.
Send us a message if you pray regularly for our team. It would be an encouragement to hear from you.
