Every percent that goes up is a cause for celebration. If you’ve been watching our support-o-meter, you might have noticed that it has gone up to 33% while being here in Belize! This means that we are a THIRD of the way to 100%. Praise the Lord! Please join us in thanking the Lord for his goodness to us. Please also join in praying that we might reach 50% of support by the end of October. That is the next milestone in our support raising. You know as well as we know that God owns the cattle on a thousand hills and will provide in His timing.
Things are going very well for us here in Belize. The Lord has really been blessing our time here and has allowed us to make deeper connections with the villagers. It will be sad to leave in a couple of weeks knowing that we leave with deeper friendships than before, but this only fuels the urgency we have to raise support so we can get here and serve and live among the people of Belize.
Tomorrow we will start going from house to house and introducing ourselves. Everyone in the village has a good idea of who WE are, but we want a better idea of who THEY are. We are acquainted with a good amount of people in the village, and some have become great friends, but we would like to be acquainted with everyone. That way, when we drive by their house Sunday morning and ask if they are going to church, they will at least have had a friendly visit from us and have a better idea of who is doing the asking. Please pray for us as we do this. As you can imagine, inviting ourselves in to someones home, is a little nerve wracking. Please pray that God will give us a calmness and boldness of spirit and that we would be received well in the village. Please also pray for God’s hand of protection. We are not walking in to any “danger zones”, but we will be dealing with people who have substance abuse problems. We know, that WITH GOD ALL THINGS ARE POSSIBLE!
Have a wonderful weekend!
