Back to Hewa...

Post by JMG » Thu Sep 07, 2017 4:35 am

Our two week break comes to a close tomorrow and we will be flying back to the bush first thing in the morning. We've got a bunch of stuff to deal with over the next three months. The largest ministry-related thing is that I am planning on starting an elder/deacon training course in about three weeks and will run for about three months. After it's finished my hope is to mark the first official elders and deacons of the Hewa church some time after the new year. Please pray that God would give me the wisdom that I need to train these people in such a way that would provide the Hewa church with strong leaders for generations to come. Also, we have some other pretty heavy things to deal with over the coming months that I can't discuss in a public forum, but your prayers for peaceful and God-honoring resolutions are much appreciated.

As always, I very much appreciate you guys...your friendship and brotherhood is a huge encouragement to me and to the rest of my family. I pray that God blesses all of you as you have blessed us.

If things go to plan we will be back out in town just before Christmas to be able to celebrate with our friends on the mission base and for my wife to have her blood work checked again.

See you all in December.

Peace, buddy! I will continue to pray for you guys.

Continued prayers.

Prayer for you and your family as you teach those in your church to become leaders.
