September 2018 Update

GET UNPLUGGED!

“Be still and know that I am God!”
Psalm 46:10


Summer is coming to an end, and as the new school years begin and vacations come to end, we mentally prepare for the busy routines of life to rev up once again. And with the busyness adds the pressure to be constantly connected to our phone and computers with multiple portals of communication (even this email – thank you!).

But where does it end? Or, does it ever?

Did God create us to GO GO GO?

No!

Even He modeled rest for us (Genesis 2:2).

In the midst of our going, doing, and being in this race of life, let’s be sure to take a timeout to pray and seek Him! Enjoy your daily quiet time with the Lord in His Word. A friend of mine shared with me recently that she considers her devotion and prayer time with the Lord as her dessert each day – she looked forward that much to unplugging from the craziness of life and simply being with Him.

So get unplugged and have dessert! Spend some time praying with us for Luis, Andrew and the LPA team as they travel worldwide sharing the Gospel. As you know they just returned from Grand Rapids, so there’s much to share and praise God for! 

Please pray with us and open the below reports to praise God for many answered prayers and to specifically know what to pray for in the months ahead.

Resting in the Power of Jesus’ Name,

“For God alone, O my soul, wait in silence, for my hope is from him.”
Psalm 62:5
