“For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways, declares the LORD.” Isaiah 55:8
Pursuing God Through Uncertainty
Over the last several months, God has made it abundantly clear that He is WITH us through uncertainty, in trials, and in the darkest valleys, He is WITH us as we seek His face, and He is faithful to complete the good work He started in us. Here are some of the verses that He’s used to comfort and encourage us during this time:
- “And I am certain that God, who began the good work within you, will continue his work until it is finally finished on the day when Christ Jesus returns.” Philippians 1:6 (God started this work in us and He is going to be the one to finish it!)
- Be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid or terrified because of them, for the LORD your God goes with you; he will never leave you nor forsake you. Deut 31:6 (He is WITH us, ALWAYS!)
- “Submit yourselves, then, to God. Resist the devil, and he will flee from you.” James 4:7 (First submit to God, then do battle with the enemy.)
- But seek first his kingdom and his righteousness, and all these things will be given to you as well. Matthew 6:33 (Seek the things of God first and foremost, and He will take care of the rest.)
Our Next Steps
In drawing near to Him and to each other, He continues to lead and guide us.
JAARS – A New Location to Serve
Our next step is to serve at JAARS, a Wycliffe support center in North Carolina. We plan to move in January and hope to be there for about one year before heading back to PNG. While there, James will continue to support and train Bible translators to use computers for Bible translation. James’ future supervisor encouraged us in a recent conversation:
“What you do… fits perfectly with [this] department and I’m perfectly happy for you to come on board.”
What a blessing to know that James’ skills will continue being used to help bring Bibles to the Bibleless!
Our Financial Need
In order to start working at JAARS, we need to reach 100% of our Wycliffe ministry budget. We are currently over $1400/month short.
