“Yet I am confident I will see the Lord’s goodness while I am here in the land of the living.” (Psalm 27:13)
Sometimes, the going is smooth & easy. Other times, you have to get out and “push the car”. It’s that way in life, and in ministry.
But in every circumstance, God is at-work all around us. With that in mind, here are some recent work and activities:
At the hospital, Benjamin had surgery yesterday to install a shunt for his ongoing kidney treatment. Here his house mother Phikun listens intently as the nurse explains his treatment.
“Pay attention, and you will have understanding. What I am teaching you is good, so remember it all.” (Proverbs 4:1-2)
Shirley was so happy to finally hold little Ezra, the new baby born to our co-workers Matt & Audrey.
`May the Lord bless and protect you; may the Lord’s face radiate with joy because of you’ (Num 6:24-5)
At Home of Light, house mother Bpan spends time helping the boys with homework right after school.
“I know the burdens that God has laid on us. He has set the right time for everything.” (Ecc 3:10-11)
This is a closer look at Joseph as he does his math homework. The “buzz-cut” hair is a typical requirement at school.
“Choose my teachings instead of silver, and knowledge rather than the finest gold. Wisdom is more precious than rubies.
Nothing you could want is equal to it.” (Prov 8:10-11)
I pieced together several photos to get everyone in our September staff meeting with all of our house parents.
“Come, let us meet together to bless the True God…” (Psalm 68:26)
Because it is rainy season, our house fathers planted one more rice crop. Soon, when the rains end, this crop will be ready to harvest. Please pray that we will have wisdom about the rice farming—should we continue, or scale back our efforts. “For God is not unfair. How can he forget your hard work for him” (Hebrews 6:10)
At Home of Grace, the boys helped put a fresh coat of paint on the metal gate. Here Peter and John are trying to make it beautiful again. Notice that they use banana leaves for a dropcloth.
“They will not work for nothing…For they will be the children of those who receive good from the Lord” (Isaiah 65:23)
Grace and peace to you in Christ,
