This much good news needs bullet points in order get through each one. So here we go:
*just yesterday we had a new local (Sam) come to follow The Son after hearing the testimony of another local believer. Sam had only met with us one other time. In his second meeting he came to faith.
*a family was just visited on Monday for the first time who live far in the southern mountains. These are the mountains where bad activities from extremist groups have resulted in nasty killings. The husband of this family started having dreams of The Son 5 years ago. He came to faith 4 years ago. He eventually led his wife to faith. They have 5 children to whom they read Bbl stories. They would like to start a home chch since they live so far away from the capital. But they had not met any other believers until Monday. Crazy.
*last night at 10p my partner and I drove to meet and deliver a Book to a new guy. He works in the same town where the container of wood was sent from. The port town is called Rades. It was certainly a needle in a hay stack kind of search to find this guy. It was seriously miraculous how we found his car waiting for us. He was a little hesitant to chat with us, but was eager to take a Book. We are now connected on Facebook and plan to meet next week, Lord willing.
*on the wood side of things, a big big customer whom we have been praying would order and many of you have prayed would order our wood has finally told us they plan to place their first big order this week. Please please pray. This will be a game changer for our business and international work.
*another of our our local guys who came to faith a few months ago would like to get “dunked” in our pool this Saturday.
*my friend who leads the CRU (campus ministry) group here in country just told me they had 20 new students come to faith over the last two weeks. Mostly 4th and 5th generation friends.
*both Max and Ella have received great school reports. They are both doing great and their French and Arabic are improving.
*Jenny is exhausted from teaching, but she still loves it. It’s one of those things… it’s hard, but good. She still needs prayer as she works full time in a difficult country.
*the 6am Crossfit class I teach is growing. We are close to 10 ppl each morning.
*we bought the kids each a rabbit on Easter Sunday. Kira may be the most excited 😳
**these are just some of the most recent great pieces of news. More is happening and more is yet to come. The Son is at work in this world. Aslan is on the move. Come HS, come!!
