We wanted to update a prayer request we had in our last newsletter regarding a lady in our fellowship. She is HIV Positive and has not been doing well lately. We are praising God that she knows Jesus but we are sad to see her body deteriorating so quickly. Her medicines have stopped working and she has been prescribed medicine that will reduce the pain as her time seems very short. One of her last requests was to get baptized and since she hasn't been well the last few weeks she hasn't been able to come to church so we are praying about what the Lord would have us do. We know that as Christians, baptism is a commandment given to us by Jesus but we also know that it is not essential for salvation. With that being said, we would love to see her baptized and we know that this is very important to her. Please pray for an open door so we can see this sweet sister baptized.
We praise God that he has given us a whole year with our sweet baby boy, Benjamin. We had some neighbors over for cake and tea and had great fellowship. We can't wait for you all to meet our little guy when we come in November! (We also can't wait to watch him get his first taste of an In-N-Out Burger!!!!)
We thank the Lord and your prayers for our move. Although we were only moving next door, we were consumed in organizing our friend's house (we were housesitting for another family) so they could come home from Germany with a nice tidy house. We are now in our home and we still get the pleasure of watching amazing animals just outside our window. Just last night the lions were roaring louder than I've ever heard them. (: Thank you Jesus for your AMAZING gifts to us.
Thanks so much for keeping us in your prayers and for your notes of encouragement and love.
