While the upheaval continues, GOD is still, and always will be, on the throne. Odd way to start a newsletter? Yes, a bit. This is usually what a newsletter or devotional ends with. But why beat around the bush? This is the bottom line and the answer to every question, while events around us seem to swirl into continuing chaos. GOD is still on His throne, and He always will be. That’s what I have to focus on each day, no matter what. Even when the doubts creep in. Even when Wayne sees hundreds of people in tent cities, gathered at the border, hoping to come into the USA. Even when arguments rage, and opinions fly about like swarming bees.
I asked the Lord recently, “what do we do about the border issues, Lord? It seems to be getting more and more out of control”. The simple answer the Lord gave me was, “Pray that these people will get saved”. “Pray for revival among them”. “Pray like you would for any other human in the world”. I got it. My opinions aren’t really all that helpful. But my prayers in partnership with the Holy Spirit, ARE!!! So that’s what I’m doing….I’m praying for these folks to get saved; to see the presence of the Lord in their midst; for the Lord to use their circumstances to bring about salvation; for something GOOD to come out of all this chaos.
Won’t you join us?
Just this week Wayne and some missionary friends in TJ, packed 100+ bags of basic food staples. Wayne took these to the immigrant camp, where virtual pandemonium broke out, with people scrambling to get the bags. Everything was gone in 15 minutes. While human nature is quite disappointing at times, still, Jesus died for every person He has created. Always something to keep in mind, right?
ps. We could use your prayers also, as we navigate the continuing border crisis in a variety of ways. Including the fact that we are being charged 4 times the price with each crossing right now. Our monthly budget for import fees has more than tripled each month since the first of the year.
