The winter has been mild and some of the farmers’ fields stayed green during the winter. We have had a good spring with many flowers already blooming. Today Julie and I with our grandchildren walked along the beach and now our faces are red.
Hard to believe it has been 7 months since we arrived at the NTM bible shool. Thursday the students for 2 weeks for their Easter break.. It has been a real privilege to get to know these dear people from some 15 countries. Sonni will be teaching 2 Corinthians, 1 Timothy and 2 Peter before graduation on the 21st of July. Please be praying for more students for the next school year.
Many of you know that Julie needed to apply for a long term visa since she is not European. This required that both of us send away our passports to the Home Office here in England. Please pray her visa and our passports return soon, so that we are free to travel.
We appreciate your continued prayers for us.
In Exodus 12 the Israelites are told about the Passover. It is stressed that it is not enough that the Passover lamb is sacrified, but that everyone individually had to come “under the blood”, by being inside where it had been painted on the door posts.
My thoughts often go back to the Lord Himself crucified as the perfect Passover Lamb, with His loving arms spread out, inviting everyone to ‘come under His blood’.
It was futile for those back in Egypt to know about the blood, or even to watch the blood. It had to become a personal decision. Likewise with the Lord on the cross. There is no benefit in knowing about it. This has to become a personal decision, to ‘come under His blood’.
Wishing you all a meaningful Easter,
Sonni & Julie
