Thank you so much, Dear Friends, for your prayers and the part you are playing in the lives of our missionary team around the world!
We are blessed and encouraged to hear from friends far and wide about how God is answering prayer, and meeting their needs. How we appreciate the part you play in our ministries and lives as well. We are privileged to serve our missionary team here at the Ethnos360 Home Offices where we can provide some of the background support, paperwork, and care that they need to continue functioning in their many ministries abroad.
Please pray for us as we have some trips ahead of us in the US, and we trust God to provide all we need for those trips. Destinations: Pennsylvania, Michigan, and Florida.
We praise God for good health for most of us. We have a few requests in that vein for the family: Beka has Lasik surgery coming up in October. Cody is loving his flying. Amy is still dealing with tiredness and nausea. Tim has a kidney stone. The Chapman’s are healthy, (yay!) but busy! The rest of us are hanging in there quite well. Praise the Lord, David and Joice found a cute apartment they like about 14 miles away. They will be moving in a few weeks. We have really enjoyed having them with us!
God is good! We are so thankful we trust a loving God Who is aware of all our needs and even all our wants! What a joy to walk beside Him each day, and to share His love with those who need to hear about it!
Thanks much for your part on our Team!
George and Linda Heckman
FROM ANOTHER CORNER OF THE WORLD: ASIA PACIFIC
The message from the first two days – things are going great. Now there is a group planning to send into their small airstrip 70 flights of materials for building and road projects.
Our missionaries there write….
“ This many flights will destroy our airstrip and we do not have the energy or time to keep up with maintaining it. We need prayer that God will protect this time of teaching, and also for wisdom as this will require so much work for us to be able to keep our airstrip functional.
Got time to read one special thing God did? Read on:
Day two of teaching is over and it has gone well. The people that are coming seem to be enjoying it very much. Pray more will come and be drawn into hearing.
The last two days we have had no rain during teaching time. This in and of itself has been a direct act of God because lately we have been averaging about 3 inches a day. Yesterday it rained all day up to about 10 minutes before teaching then it stopped and right after Jim and I walked into our house after teaching was over it started again. God is GOOD all the time.
Thank you for praying with us. We can feel it. We know there is so much to pray about lately with all the devastation and hardships there in the USA right now, so we do not take it lightly that you remember to pray for us too. Thank You so much.
In His Care, Jim and Joy E.”
The next day’s update :
“God has answered prayer with the 70 flights scheduled to come to our area. For now they have all been put on hold. Praising God for this and trusting He is in Control.
Thank you for praying with us. Jim and Joy E. in Asia Pacific”
