Change and Growth
There are so many changes that can happen in a year, and I'm really happy about one of them! My sister got married to a wonderful man, and I was blessed to be a part of the wedding! Congratulations Kelsey and Adam:).
I recently was blessed with the opportunity to move to a new apartment. This has provided the necessary means to host people. Since the move, I have been able to start a discipleship group in my home which meets on Wednesday's. We started off as 4 and are now 5 with the potential of two more.
The picture above are some of the girls that through your partnership, I have been able to invest in. Beyond discipleship groups I've been able to have several ladies over, both believer's and non-believers which has led to many good conversations.
Please pray with me for the different ministries that are going on.
• Sunday school class
• Small groups
• Youth group
• Substitute teaching
Things Coming Up
There are several things coming up in the next few weeks and months.
- Potential translating opportunity in July
- Missions team in August (translating)
- Deeper study of the Bible through classes with an online university
- Potential trip to Indonesia
- Starting passport renewal process
To go just a touch more into detail; I was asked last year at the end of the missions trip in Indonesia if I would pray and consider returning one more time to help with the English department at the Christian school. It is something that has been on my heart since I first went to Indonesia and there is an opportunity for me to go this fall and help them complete their goals. I ask that you pray with me for wisdom and guidance as I seek out God's will and timing in this. The goal of the trip would be to spend about a month working with the teachers and helping them in their classroom setting. I would develop a small workshop for all things related to teaching English as a second language to kids. Simply living in the same place as the kiddos would give me the opportunity to spend time with them and invest in their lives as well:).
And let us consider how to stir up one another to love and good works, not neglecting to meet together, as is the habit of some, but encouraging one another, and all the more as you see the Day drawing near.
