Isaiah 40:28 … those who wait on the Lord shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings like eagles, they shall run and not be weary, they shall walk and not faint. Hebrews 12:1,2 … and let us run with endurance the race that is set before us, looking unto Jesus… (NKJV)
Grandkids: Greetings once again from the Ostmans. If we were to choose a word to describe this past month, I guess it would be “WONDERFUL”; we had 3 grandkids with us while their parents were at leadership meetings overseas. Laura homeschooled them which was a bit tiring but everyone survived and hopefully they increased a bit in knowledge. And now the house is quiet – TOO QUIET!! You can see the fun we had with them in the photo here where they temporarily transformed our living room.
Translation: Even though the house was busy with grandkids and then their parents when they came to retrieve them, Lance was able to continue working on 2 Chronicles translation. Thank you for praying for him in this. Please continue to pray for wisdom and understanding.
Birthday Celebrations: March is the month for two birthdays in our family. Lance’s is on the 1st and Owen’s is on the 31st – so we spent some time celebrating! We enjoyed seeing some of God’s creation at a nearby state park. We had anticipated Ean joining us but he’s been so sick this past month. We would appreciate your prayers for him.
Travel: Our trip to the Philippines is scheduled for April 5. That’s just a month away with a lot to do between now and then! We’ll be preparing for our SYIS workshop (in Manila the 15th to the 20th), purchasing supplies and packing our bags. March 23-25 will find us visiting College Hills Baptist Church in San Angelo, TX.
Thank you: We are so grateful for all who partner with us in prayer and financial support. As you pray, please pray for renewed strength that we will not grow weary in the race before us; that we will keep looking unto Jesus.
Secure in Christ’s love,
Lance & Laura
