Proverbs 21:31 “The horse is made ready for the day of battle, but the victory belongs to the Lord.”
A little over a week ago, I (Debby) returned from a 2 1/2 week trip to Paraguay. There were a few aspects to the trip, including meeting with NTM leadership and visiting with extended family. More than anything though, it gave us a better glimpse of what life and ministry will look like for our family, and frankly, we are even more excited and eager to get to Paraguay.
In about a week’s time, our family is embarking on a three-month road trip, traversing both the USA and Canada. This trip too, has a few purposes. Our greatest desire would be that God would use us to inspire someone to join us in tribal missions. Luke 10:2 And He said to them, “the harvest is plentiful, but the laborers are few. Therefore pray earnestly to the Lord of the harvest to send out laborers into his harvest.”
We plan on visiting many churches, family and friends. Our desire is to share God’s heart for the nations, and our heart for Paraguay. We are so aware that we cannot go as missionaries alone. We need a team of people to pray, encourage, and support us financially.
But our team is not just limited to people in North America. In Paraguay, NTM leadership is also preparing a team for our family. Leadership is thinking, praying and making plans for a visit to a church that will host us, as well as a family within that church to host us and help introduce us to Paraguayan culture.
While preparations are being made on both sides of the equator, we would appreciate your prayers for us in the following aspects. Safety as we travel, boldness as we speak, and for God to move in people’s hearts to want to join us in ministry.
As we make all these preparations, we know that victory belongs to the Lord. We are joining Him in His work. It’s not about us, but about the One who is drawing worshippers to Himself from all tribes, tongues, and nations, Jesus Christ.
