I’ve popped over to Turkey for a few days so I thought I’d write a quick hello 🙂
Here’s some things that I really love about this country:
*the people are totally cool – theyre friendly, respectful, intelligent & fun!
*the history – on this brief trip I get to visit Philadelphia, Sardis, Smyrna & Laodicea, some of the churches John addressed in Revelation 2-3; furthermore, Paul’s 1st missionary trip was all over modern Turkey. Suffice it to say that his nation has a rich & magnificent history
*scenery – very beautiful: rolling hills, agrarian, some mountains & some beautiful ancient ruins.
*food – this one isn’t fair because I basically enjoy the food wherever I go, generally ,)
So be prepared for some pix tomorrow from some ofthe cool places we get to visit & please be sure to pray for the Turks on the eastern part of Turkey who are endeavoring to recover from a nasty earthquake earlier this week!
Well, my love for China has not diminished, nor did I think it would. I find myself loving the people as much, if not more, than I ever have. They capture your heart in so many different ways.
Yesterday, we had the privilege if launching Saving Moses in China by partnering w an orphanage to supply 3mnths worth of baby formula & 100 blankets to help them stay warm. The orphanage we visited oversees & cares for approximately 300 children under 5 yrs old, so it was fabulous getting to visit such a nice place 🙂
Last nite, we had a public healing mtg in downtown Kunming. I can’t even begin to tell you how meaningful this privilege is to me. We got to pray for people w back & eye problems & then our team of abt 100 people was able to pray for anyone who requested prayer. We were pleasantly mobbed 😉
So, my heart is full of Asia, praise Jesus!
Tomorrow I get to come home & I’m TOTALLY looking forward to being w my family. I’ve missed them very much. I gotta figure out how I can bring 1 with me on these trips.
Thx heaps for your prayers, support & encouragement!!
Well, my time in Cambodia so far has been completely spectacular. In 24 hours, I’ve had the privilege of ministering 4 times & wouldn’t have it any other way. Last nite I fell into bed very spent & very whole. There’s just a whole lot to say for spendng yourself totally in loving Jesus by ministering to people. Yesterday, we had a lady rec’v healing in her ear – it had been painful for a yr & last week it started to bleed. Yesterday after prayer, the pain instantly left & she could hear normally for the 1st time in months. We saw lots of people give their hearts to Jesus & hundreds of beautiful Cambodians increase their love for Jesus. How could I not love the privilege of serving Jesus in this capacity?!? You should be as lucky as me, seriously.
Today & tomorrow, I’m equally excited to see the opportunities God will give us through saving Moses to help infants know the tangible love of God. I’ll keep you posted, hopefully w some pics about some of the cool stuff God will do w saving Moses. Thx heaps for praying!!
