Month: February 2015 (page 2 of 2)

Love: Sharing

Last week, I had the pleasure of spending several hours with a new friend as she taught me this traditional handicraft (we’re making a wool scarf!). Her love for the art shone through in her care and attention to detail. These opportunities to build relationships and share His love are answers to your prayers, and we are so thankful!

Love & the Writing on the Wall

As we walk through this city, not only do we pass many people in the streets and see the hurting and pain “written” on their faces….we can also see the words of brokeness and hopelessness expressed in graffiti. 19th century English poet, William Blake, expresses the tension between innocence and evil…we pray for His love and truth to overcome all doubt.

Love: New Hearts

“I will give you a new heart and put a new spirit in you; I will remove from you your heart of stone and give you a heart of flesh.” Ezekiel 36:26

Please pray for hearts of stone to be replaced with new hearts!

Love & Friendship

We recently spent a snowy day with one of our English students at a sledding hill. Several team kids were running up and down the hill, while we stood at the bottom and talked.  It was fun to hear his memories of riding on the same hill as a kid years ago. We worked on conversing in our “weak” languages, and I found myself grateful for friendships that are safe places to make mistakes as we learn!

“Intensive” Prayer Please

We hosted our monthly University event on February 6, 2015.  Thank you for praying for the relationships we have begun with these students.  They are just beginning a break over the month of February, representing a split between semesters.

One way that we are pursuing continued connections during this time is by hosting an English intensive course for the next two weeks. Our team and individuals from two other like-minded organizations will lead participants through a variety of activities and lessons. Please pray for God to use this time to begin new relationships, to strengthen existing bonds, and to make His name known.

Fun Fact Friday–Outside the Lines

What shape is a line? In this country, a line might best be represented by a circle. At a recent restaurant opening, people gathered in a cluster while waiting for the first customers to be served.

Generations

We’ve noticed that the older men here have a similar posture as they walk the streets of our city. Please join us in praying for the generations–old and young–as we walk alongside them each day.

Repairer and Restorer

“Your people will rebuild the ancient ruins and will raise up the age-old foundations; you will be called Repairer of Broken Walls, Restorer of Streets with Dwellings.”   Isaiah 58:12
Lord, thank you that you are working in this ancient land to draw people to you and to renew their hope in you.

Good Gifts

Our family visited a town about 90 minutes away. There were street vendors around every corner, and the women at these tables were selling very cute, hand-made items. As we stopped at each table, we could tell they took pride in their crafts as they excitedly talked with us (they even gave the kids a gift). Please pray for boldness for us to share who we are excited about with those we meet.
