Greetings fellow sojourners!
We have reached the end of our time in Phoenix, AZ. We have experienced the extreme heat and a rip-roaring storm. We have enjoyed the house with air conditioning. We also felt the anxiety of needing to have the AC repaired when it stopped working. We have been blessed to have a church to go to and the Body of Christ to worship Him with. We got to know ourselves a little again as a family and had some time to refocus and relax. It has been a very good time of house sitting for our friends the Lewis family and we are very grateful to Our God and them for this opportunity and Oasis. God has blessed us greatly while we wait on Him to provide what we need for our return to the field of Alaska.
Silly me, in the midst of all our blessings, I was starting to voice my doubts to God once again in my morning prayer and meditation. Being a whiny child. Then He answered in several little “keep going” encouragements that I could never have anticipated. And suddenly I get back to understanding that I don’t understand! Trust and Obey, for there is no other way…..Therefore, in obedience we carry on with the tasks He has laid before us and Thank Him for His blessings.
Encouragements? You ask. Yes, Partners in ministry responding with financial pledges that have unofficially brought us to the 70% mark. Praise The Lord!
Have you considered Sarabeth’s blog post from last week? We have over 500 people and churches on our mailing lists and only 50 individuals and 6 churches have committed to be prayer and/or financial Partners in this ministry. We are praying that God would provide and bless all of you that read this and that He would prompt you to consider taking a $20 a month portion of our remaining need and filling out a response card (attached) and mailing it in. Sarabeth wrote about needing 100 people at $20/month and God moved already to fill 5 of those this week. Will you be one of the 95 remaining Partners? The Countdown has begun and we are Trusting God to supply all of what He knows we need to get us to where He is calling.
Our schedule over the next few weeks:
July 12 — Heading back to Huachuca City, AZ
July 15 – Mustang Mountain Cowboy Church, Whetstone, AZ
July 20-22 – Passages Christian Fellowship church Camp out @ WOODS CANYON LAKE, AZ
July 25-Aug 1 – Gallup, NM
July 29 – Grace Bible Church in Gallup
In His service,
The Hill Family
