Last week I asked those of you who want to stay on my email list to let me know. I don’t want to keep sending this email to people who don’t want it. I was really encouraged by those who have responded, saying they wanted to keep receiving these emails. Sometimes I wonder if anyone really reads these emails and cares about what is happening through our ministry in India. Clearly many people really do – I’m not alone! Thanks so much for your concern, prayers, encouragement and financial support!!!
When the Jews were fighting the Amalekites as they moved towards Mt Sinai Joshua led the fighting but Moses stood on the mountain praying (Exodus 17:8-13). When his harms were lifted in prayer Joshua and the Jews were victorious, but when he let down his arms signifying lack of prayer support they started losing the battle. In order to keep faithfully praying Moses needed help so Aaron and Hur stood by him helping him. Joshua needed Moses and Moses needed Aaron and Hur. They couldn’t have succeed alone. Imagine how encouraging Moses was to Joshua and Aaron and Hur to Moses.
That’s how you encourage me as well as the pastors in India by your support and prayers. Thanks so very much. You are much loved and greatly appreciated! This ministry could not happen without your faithful support. God will bless you in this life and reward you in all eternity for your faithfulness!
Galatians 6:2 Carry each other’s burdens, and in this way you will fulfill the law of Christ.
As Christians we all need to be encouraged and supported. Think of those who support you and stand by you in life. Thank God for them, and thank them personally. Now think about those whom you support and help. Who can you reach out to today? Who else that you know could use some encouragement from you? Do so today.
