I sat in our church this Resurrection Sunday and couldn't help thinking about what last year was like… and the year before that… and the year before that…. It has been several years since we were here in the States on this day. God has His reasons and we trust that.
We have been praying that we would all be able to go to Italy this April. So far, that doesn't look like it will happen. God has His reasons for that too and we trust HIM.
God's Ministry WILL prevail. I would like to tell that to Satan's face as we go through different spiritual battles this week! We may not always be used by God in the ways that we think or even want to be used, but He is still working and His ministry still continues. We want to be in HIS will… whatever that might be.
God's will is that Dave go to Italy this April. Alone…but not alone. We will be helping him through our prayers and encouraging him in any way we can. Will you join us?
…. and maybe, God will work a miracle for some of us to join Dave in person as well. With God's timing, there is always time for what His best is.
... These all died in faith, not having received the promises, but having seen them afar off and were PERSUADED of them, and EMBRACED them, and CONFESSED that they were STRANGERS and PILGRIMS on the earth. For they that say such things declare plainly that they seek a country... But now they desire a better country, that is, an heavenly: wherefore God is not ashamed to be called their God: for he hath prepared for them a city.
