Journal Entry 7/30/18 – together on the Journey – And Now two(2) Countdowns!July 31, 2018 - Author: Editor
Wow, I wish I could work as hard, fast and smoothly as The Lord does. He is directing our steps and giving just enough light to our path for us to keep following Him if we do not take our eyes off Him (“Thy word is Lamp unto my feet and a light unto my path” Psalm 119:105). We have a second goal and more solid understanding that we are to begin wrapping up our support discovery time in just over 6 weeks from now and start planning our trip to Alaska to start by the middle of September. Time and Money are two things you may never have enough of at the exact same instant, but that is the Miracle we are asking God to perform. Fully funded in time for us to depart in Mid-September, to be able to make it up to Alaska before the weather starts to become dicey.
This past week or 10 days, God has been at work in raising our financial partnerships. While we were camping with our Partner church out of Phoenix we discovered that we had reached the 75% mark, but by the time we finished in the wilderness He had moved us up to break 83% of our financial Goal. This leaves only $1,067 in our Monthly Support need or 54 more people at $20/month. We continually pray that God would provide for and bless all of you that read this and that He would prompt you to consider taking one or two of our remaining monthly pledges. The countdown of time and remaining pledges is rapidly declining and we are stepping out in faith that God is on the move to help us arrive in Alaska this September fully funded. (See attachments)
Meanwhile, our visit to the Gallup, NM area has been very good! God has blessed us to be able to see many of those we came to love, especially the church we enjoyed attending for many years. Truly, it was a blessing to us once again to hear the teaching at Grace Bible Church this past Sunday, and to visit with familiar faces; thank you GBC! In addition, God has allowed Scott to assist technically a little with the Radio stations at Western Indian Ministries. Please pray that we would have perseverance, faith, grace, mercy and wisdom in our run to finish this leg of our race!
Our schedule over the next few weeks:
The rest of this week – Gallup, NM area visits
Aug – traveling to Texas to visit (are you on the list yet?)
In His service,
