Thank you for the opportunity to share in the work of Jesus Christ in this part of the world. Recently, we had many visitors from the states, who have an interest in the work here with the school and the orphanage, come by and visit and the one question they asked me was, "What's the biggest challenge in your ministry?" And over the years my answer has changed quite a bit. Of course, when I first got here, my answer was "adjusting to the food and culture." Then later on as I grew and gained experience, my answer would be "convincing the lost that they are lost, that they are sick spiritually and need an antidote that can only be found in Christ."
After finding effective ways to evangelize to the locals and teaching them the truth, my challenge went from that to "growing leaders of the church to be good stewards of God, teaching them not to be dependent on foreign aid and to be self supportive."
Now, as we've overcome those challenges, the biggest challenge for me personally in my ministry is "to fully trust in God and teach others to do the same," to be like Abraham and all those mentioned in Hebrews 11, to be able to fulfill 2 Cor. 5:7! I pray that you too learn to trust fully in God for all things in this life and the life after. I thank you for your support and for your prayers.
We are in the final quarter for our 2nd year students. They will graduate in less than a month! We are excited for them and ask that you keep them in your prayers! We are also looking forward to Wes Autrey arriving for our graduation!
