TRUSTING THE PLANS OF THE LORD IN 2020!! We know all of us have had to lay down our plans for 2020 and trust that the Lord has something else in mind. This has certainly been a strange year for us, but we are continuing to allow Jesus to shine through us regardless of the changes that had to be made!! We are so proud of all our missionaries who have continued to be creative in reaching out when their “normal” activities have been curtailed.
Many continue to be actively involved in food distribution to those who are truly starving since they cannot work. As much as we are chafing under the restrictions here in this country, other countries are still much worse. Even those that are opening up somewhat are still in the throes of economic uncertainly, especially for the poor.
We are also very grateful that only a couple of families have been personally affected by the virus and they have already completely recovered!! Closer to home, Tobi’s nephew and niece-in-law both had the virus but are already back at work and only had slight symptoms.
FIRE CHURCH’S MEN’S ADVANCE!! In the meantime, FIRE Church finally was able to have its Men’s Advance!! It had been postponed earlier in the year because of Covid. They gathered at the church on Friday night, July 24 and then met all day on Saturday. It was a powerful time of hearing the Word and sharing with each other. Josh was one of the speakers. It is so encouraging to see men who are hungry for God and are hungry to be the men that God created them to be. This world needs more Godly Men of FIRE!!!
SPECIAL CELEBRATIONS IN JULY!! Even in the midst of a pandemic, we still chose to celebrate our 26th anniversary and Tobi’s 58th birthday!! We got away to the mountains for a few days and enjoyed God’s creation and too much food!!! We are so grateful for all the Lord has done in our lives and are really grateful that we are able to do it together!! Thank you for standing with us through all these years.
Love in Jesus,
Josh & Tobi
