I am not skilled to understand
What God hath willed, what God hath planned;
I only know at His right hand
Stands One who is my Savior.
My Savior, My God by Aaron Shust
This past year has been one of changes and uncertainties in our lives, but it has also overwhelmingly been one of blessings. We can see God’s hand so clearly in the place He has us, it is hard to doubt the plans He has for us! Just these past months alone we have had so many opportunities to share about the work that God is doing among the Buru people, we have shared with a Slavic church, an Batak group, a girl scout troop, and of course with many Americans! Greg even had the opportunity to teach two classes at William Jessup University, a local Christian college.
We are still uncertain about what our future holds. The doctors have told us that we should not take Caleb to an area with malaria until he is at least 10 years old. This means we are in the process of looking for a different ministry that we can do in the meantime. We are still very committed to the Buru church and are heartbroken that we can’t be there right now, we are also very hopeful that we can return there someday and continue helping in the work there. Please pray that the Lord will give us clear direction in where He would have us these next 5 years.
This coming Thursday we are heading up north through Oregon and Washington, we will be visiting friends and supporters, sharing in churches and sharing at a missions conference. Please pray for traveling mercies, and that God will use us to further His kingdom. We have been so blessed this past week to see how the Lord has provided our needs for this trip. It is so humbling to see how God uses all different ways and means to meet our needs, and that He loves us enough to be concerned with them!
