Last week's blog was quite long....today it's a bit shorter. Thank you once again for your prayers for us over another week. We knew the Lord's help in all we did and were blessed at various meetings. It is encouraging to meet with people who love the Lord and have a genuine interest in what we do.
July and August are topsy turvy months for us as far as FML office work is concerned. This is due to holidays and other commitments. The work continues but takes on a slightly different angle throughout those months. This year, it has continued into September unexpectedly and so it is really only this week that our "normal" routine is swinging into action.
So it will, God willing, be a week of planning. A week of sorting through all of the various tasks, prioritising them and starting to work through them one by one.
We thank the Lord for His speaking voice over the past couple months. We thank God that we have heard His voice through the topsy turvy days and we are beginning this new season freshly challenged with new ideas, visions, a burden for the lost and a desire to serve our God and be in the centre of His will for our lives.
This morning at 6am, William and I sat; slightly sleepy; at the breakfast table thinking of the day ahead and all it may hold for us. I read a few verses from a daily reading book. We were reminded that all things work together for good. That verse has been so true in our lives and it was definitely a timely reminder for us. We were also reminded of how God meant things for our good, even when others thought evil against us. As we read these verses, we are thankful that God's plan for our lives is perfect. Even when we have found ourselves in difficult situations, God has been in control and has worked all out for our good.
This is our prayer for the work of Feed my Lambs as well. That God will continue to lead, guide and direct in the way He wants us to go and will open more and more opportunities here, in Africa and across the world to work for Him.
