The day for building your walls will come, the day for extending your boundaries. Micah 7:11
The last few months have taught us much about waiting – waiting on normalcy of life, waiting on making plans for the future and waiting on God’s favor to bring resolution to many painful issues in our country and around the world. More than ever it is clear that there is nothing else that we can put our hope in except God’s promises. The time of waiting however is not a wasted time and is not a passive time. It is a time of preparation and growth. In Micah 7 in the midst of great depravity and absence of faithfulness, in the midst of hardships and trouble there is a promise of the time coming when the new walls will be built and the borders expanded. This is a challenge to use the time of waiting as a preparation for growth.
While the borders to many nations are still closed, that harvest in the nations is richer than ever. The reports we receive from our partners around the world tell that in the midst of struggles and challenges people are seeking God and His love. With hope in His promise of every nation hearing the Gospel, we are gearing for growth! Our first missions team since the beginning of COVID-19 pandemic is heading to Macedonia in a week! Financial help has been sent to Moldova, Serbia, Egypt and Nepal to meet the most immediate needs of those who are truly desperate.
We are preparing to expand our presence in the United States and the new nations – because we believe that the harvest of the next few years will be greater than we have ever experienced before!
