I am writing this letter thinking of the verse “So Abraham called that place The LORD Will Provide. And to this day it is said, ‘On the mountain of the LORD it will be provided.’” — Genesis 22:14.
This is a very comforting verse especially if you are facing a need because it describes the ultimate nature of God. He provides. He sustains. He makes a way. In the last year and a half this essence of God has shone through the darkest of the circumstances, not just for Helen and I but for many of the international partners of World Missions Alliance. In the countries like Nepal or Republic of Georgia or Ethiopia or Lebanon, when it seems that the suffering is overwhelming and the church is being restricted and oppressed, the Lord provides with such care, abundance, and perfection!
Have you experienced the same in your life?
Even though we have not sent out mission teams in the month of August, the work in the Great Commission continues, and we are excited to share what has happened last month. It is a wonderful feeling to be the answer to someone’s prayer, the provision for the desperate and the suffering. I hope what you read below will feel your heart with joy because through supporting WMA with your money and prayers YOU have become the Lord’s provision for some of our partners in the nations!
In the meantime, in a few days I, and several others, will board the plane to Cairo, Egypt where the Lord presented us with a very exciting and unusual opportunity! Remember, I need your prayers through this trip September 20 – 30 (and especially, on September 25!).
Yours in Christ,
