Dear Praying friends, 

“Be careful for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known unto God. And the peace of God, which passeth all understanding, shall keep your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus. Finally, brethren, whatsoever things are true, whatsoever things are honest, whatsoever things are just, whatsoever things are pure, whatsoever things are lovely, whatsoever things are of good report; if there be any virtue, and if there be any praise, think on these things.” Philippians 4:6-8

These are definitely verses that have truths to remember for 2021. As we look back at 2020 there were times when anxiousness and worry seemed to be a daily part of life. However, as we “think on these things” as Paul says, we can rest assured that God was in control - and still IS in control. In February, these were actually the verses that “P” had the opportunity to teach through, with approximately 25 ladies, in an online seminar. During the week she spent about 2 hours a night going over the truths found in this scripture, especially, “being anxious for nothing”. The ladies felt it was very timely and a good lesson for all to learn. 

Because of the opportunity that “P” had with these ladies, the same group asked if I would be willing to do a once-a-month service for them online. It has been a blessing to serve this small congregation in this way. I was also able to preach a special Good Friday service for this same group online. We look forward to the day we can travel again and encourage these dear brothers and sisters in person. 

Besides these opportunities, we have also had the privilege to start three new studies. “S” meets on Tuesday nights with a small group of men who are seeking to know more about scripture. At the same time, “P” is able to take some ladies from one area of the city to another area for a Ladies’ Bible study. On Fridays, “P” has started a mentoring study with a local pastor’s wife. She is excited about this and the possibility of adding some additional wives to this study. We also started another study on Saturday mornings with a young family. We just finished an extensive study through Colossians and are now excited to be going through the book of 1 Peter focusing on, our Living Hope. 

We are extremely excited about all these new opportunities that the Lord has allowed us to be involved in, and we look forward to seeing what will continue to come as 2021 unfolds. Please continue to remember us and the work that is happening here. “S” also had the opportunity to do an Easter chalk talk for about 50 people for the local expat group. It was a good opportunity as many of the believers had invited unsaved friends to the activity. This was one of the rare times since March 2020 that we actually were able to have everyone meet together. What a blessing to be able to celebrate our Lord’s Resurrection in this way. 

Unfortunately, our correspondence will continue to be very sparse in this time of heightened risk. We appreciate your gracious understanding in this area. Please know we are still working here and doing as much as we can for His Kingdom, but for safety reasons for both us and the dear brothers and sisters here, we need to keep our communications very limited. We do appreciate your thoughts and concern for us and would appreciate your continued prayers on our behalf. We have been faithfully remembering you, our partners, as well in our daily devotion times, as we know things are difficult all over the world right now. 

In Him
 “S” and “P”.
