This is one of my favorite verses in regard to the crucifixion story. Jesus prepared himself before his suffering. When he asked help from his Father, he received it. If our Lord needed strength from heaven, what makes us think we can triumph in the flesh.
We are keeping busy with school and doctors appointments. Arelsy and I head back to Tegus for another appointment next week. Please pray for travel safety.
This week is Easter week again. The time we remember what Jesus did for us, and praise Him for it. As always, there will be a three day conference with several of the sister churches visiting. There may be between five and eight hundred people with us this week, hearing the gospel of Jesus Christ. Many have heard it time after time. They need their hearts to be broken and prepared even as the sower would break and prepare the earth to receive the seed.
The children and I are praying that the Lord would speak to us all in a special way this week. Whatever our needs may be, He has something that He wants us to learn…something that He wants us to do.
I have had some kids return to their families recently, and would ask that you pray for them in a special way. Some are very small and do not yet understand the truth of the gospel. I have been told that they are attending a church that Brother Ronnie started in their town, so that is a big blessing.
Our baby (wearing green in the picture) just celebrated his second birthday. Sometimes I wonder where they will be in twenty years from now. They definitely won’t still be here with me taking care of them the way they are now. Will they be prepared for whatever God has in store for them? The task seems impossible, but we can only trust that if God has us here, then He will use us to mold them into what He wants them to be.
Have a blessed Crucifixion and Resurrection week.
