Journal Entry 8/17/18 – Together on the Journey – A Quick Update

September 15, 2018 - Author: Editor

And my God will (DID!) supply all your needs according to His riches in glory in Christ Jesus. Phil 4:19

 

Canadian Greetings,

 

What an awesome God we serve!  Thank you for your prayers as we travel the long road to Alaska.  We thought we would be able to slow down just a bit and spend some time camping along the way, but the temperatures and weather have already dropped below tolerance, especially for our youngest.  So our timetable has been adjusted accordingly…we entered Canada yesterday without a glitch, currently in Lethbridge.  Praise the Lord for an inexpensive hotel with a waterpark!  Since we are not going to be camping as much as we had planned, the expenses of travel are going to be a little bit higher so if anyone is willing to help with filling up our outgoing expenses account, it will be much appreciated.  Last we knew, we were $2500 short of the goal.

 

Our schedule now will, Lord willing, put us into Glennallen 4 days earlier than we expected, arriving on Thursday September 20.  Thank you for remembering us in prayer for safety in travel – especially through the snow that is already falling in Canada.

 

By the way, we had a wonderful time in Carey Idaho visiting our church there that we had not seen for 16 years.  It was truly a blessing from God that we could fellowship with His family there, somewhat like the future of all believers!

 

In His service,

Scott and Sarabeth Hill and family

Journal Entry 8/17/18 – Together on the Journey – HAVE YOU been praying for us?

August 28, 2018 - Author: Editor

(Originally emailed 8/17/2018)

And my God will supply all your needs according to His riches in glory in Christ Jesus. Phil 4:19

 

Howdy Y’all!  Texas Greetings,

 

HAVE YOU been praying for us?  I am a bit afraid that you are even now praying for us!!  Afraid?!?  Yes, because God is on the move in a mighty way!!!  When God’s people pray, we hope to see an answer, but when He answers, sometimes it is not what we expect.  Sometimes His answer includes us in the solution because we prayed.  If I pray for God to “help my unbelief” (Mk 9:23-24), He might very well put me in a situation where only He can provide the solution, thereby increasing my faith in Him.  Take heart!  He is doing that very thing NOW for you and for us!!!  This last week He has been adding partners into our fellowship that have increased the prayer support, financial support and OUR Faith in Him.  As of today, Friday, we have 99.9% of our monthly need pledged and we have had over half of our project funds donated.  We are so very excited that He has been working toward completing our Home Service and is about to take us to the field.  Our departure date to head north to Alaska has been set for September 5th, 2018!!!!!

I, Scott, said that I am afraid, but I think it is more that I am intrepid.  When I realized that God was completing His initial answer to our prayers and wrapping up this time of our family’s life, I was suddenly faced with the reality of another major change in our “routine”.  As I get older, I am coming to grips with how much more I resist changing gears after finally settling into the current one.  I think that we just got used to traveling and visiting again and accepting that this was what God wanted for us, but we knew that this was not the end goal (2 Timothy 1:8-14), we have a much higher calling.

Home Service is a time for us to give the Body of Christ an opportunity to share in what God is doing.  By following us in reading these emails, Praying for us, visiting with us, partnering with us financially, and sharing your lives and God’s testimonies – YOU have become a part of what God is doing in this ministry and I pray that God would let you share in the blessings as we move together to Alaska.

If God has prompted you to take advantage of this opportunity in ministry by sharing financially and you have not yet acted on it, now is a good time to help us finish our Home Service well.  A long time ago, I came across these statistics for aiming at getting things done 99.9% of the time:  Only 16,000 pieces of mail would be lost by the U.S. Post Office … every hour; 20,000 drug prescriptions would be improperly filled each week; 32,000 checks would be deducted from the wrong bank account each hour; and we would only have one hour of unsafe drinking water each month.  Can you help put us at 100% of our monthly need or help us fulfill our remaining $5,000 need in the project funds (includes travel to the field and will help in furnishings like kids bed’s and a washer and dryer)?  Thank you!  WE know that God will complete what He started, we are seeing Him work even as we write this email.

Aug. 18 – Depart Dallas, TX to Houston, TX
Aug. 19 – Worship The Lord with friends at Cypress Bible Church in Houston, TX
Aug. 21 – Depart Houston, TX traveling to Austin, TX area (Georgetown)

Journal Entry 8/7/18 – together on the Journey – Why? & A Schedule Update

August 7, 2018 - Author: Editor

Greetings from a green Nebraska,

When we departed last April, Nebraska was a bit brown, but when we returned late last week, it was all green in the fields of farm country!  It is truly amazing how different a landscape looks in just a few short months and how we can go from hot, dry and sandy — to hot, humid, and green in just a 3 day drive.  Genesis 1:11 states “Then God said, “Let the land produce vegetation: seed-bearing plants and trees on the land that bear fruit with seed in it, according to their various kinds.” And it was so.”  Yes, I agree, it is definitely so!

Farming makes me think a lot about why we do what we do.  God has called all of His followers to be witnesses and to make disciples throughout the entire world (Acts 1:8 & Matthew 28:19 & 20).  Our part is to keep technology working so that those called to declare the good news ‘on the air’ can keep on announcing.  However, we also have the responsibility to witness what God is doing in this ministry and to encourage the Body of Christ (our Partners) with that witness.

There are different seasons in farming where you are doing a lot of waiting and planning: deciding things like what to plant, where it will be planted, how much to plant, when to plant, how to take care of the plants, when to harvest, etc…you get the idea.  Once you are done with planting or harvesting there is a lot of work done during the waiting.  WE are in the planning and waiting season of our ministry.  While we work at sharing what God is doing through our visiting and traveling, God is at work preparing the fields, both the ministry field (Alaska Radio) and the Sending field (growing our prayer, financial, and witnessing partners).

We have seen a very green growing season in our partnerships.  We are blessed with tremendous growth in new relationships with three new churches that have come alongside us.  We are seeing God grow our funding rapidly almost keeping in step with the growing season here in Nebraska.  Of the 100 $20/month pledges challenge, we had four more taken while we traveled and we are down to just 40 more to go.  We are excited to see what God has planned for Harvest this year!

Our schedule over the next few weeks:
Aug 8 – Aug 13: Visiting Eatons in Alvo, NE
Aug 5 and 12   : Visiting Crossroads Bible Church
Aug 8:  Scott helping at Cass County fair with CBC
Aug 13:  Lindsborg, KS
Aug 14:  Dallas/Ft Worth TX
Coming soon – dates for Houston, Austin, and San Antonio (in that order).
September 13th – Our DEPARTURE date for heading North to Alaska with 100% support!  (We are so close at 87% right now)

THANK YOU so much for sharing in this amazing journey with us, also for praying and for partnering with us.

 

In His service,
The Hill Family
