Greetings to our Partners in ministry!March 15, 2013 - Author: Sarabeth Hill - No Comments
Every day is filled with the ebb and flow of God at Work around here, some days it is hard to get even the routine things done. Praise the Lord that He continually challenges and uses us to accomplish His ministry here. It has only been 4 weeks since our weekend Strategic Planning Retreat, where many of us including a couple of our board members and the local church pastor got together for a time of prayer and seeking God’s direction for the future of this 75 year old mission. It was truly a blessing to be able to see and hear the many points of view that were represented there and to hear the heart of many in their desire to follow where ever God is leading. The first fruits of this time were clearly evident within days of coming home as one Navajo couple came back from this and told our director that they had been committed before, but were now willing to surrender to God’s call and direction in their involvement with Western Indian Ministries. I should have said at the beginning – CAUTION!! God at Work!! He has rarely revealed more than just the next step to take in His plan for us – this is sometimes frustrating for me personally, but reinforces the need for faith and patience. WE all have to keep our senses on alert to be ready for His next move. Please pray that we would develop a spiritual peripheral vision that keeps us tuned in to His directions at all times.
