AloThank you for praying for us over the past week. We were conscious that God was helping us when the devil was making life very difficult.
Our office in Nairobi has now moved location and we thank God for opening this door for us. An amount of money is still owing to the previous landlords and we would ask you to pray that this is provided as soon as possible and if you can help in anyway that would be greatly appreciated.
We have had many decisions to make over these past days and still more that we need God's guidance on. At times our heads spin and we can feel overwhelmed with the responsibility God has placed upon us and the amount of work which needs done over the next few weeks, but we thank God for the timely reminder He has given us to "Be still". On Thursday evening at a meeting the message preached was to "stand still and see the salvation of the Lord....sit still and see how the matter will fall....and be still and know that I am God." The following day in a daily reading book, I read the words "Keep still and let God work". Then, on Saturday, I received a text from a friend which again brought the verse, "Be still and know that I am God."
Certainly these words have been precious to us over these past few days when the temptation to try and sort things out ourselves has been strong and the feeling that we must be doing something has impressed itself upon us. We thank God that He is in control and He is never late. He will work everything out for our good if we continue to have faith and trust Him.
Also this past week we have registered for the Worldwide Missionary Convention which will be held in Bangor in August. After attending for a number of years, we gave it a miss last year, but are looking forward to returning. We will have our stand there every evening from Monday to Friday inclusive and have lots of new literature there to promote and raise awareness of the different ministries of FML. Apart from a few days holiday, we have a very full programme between now and then so please pray that we will continue to know the Lord's help.
This week we are also preparing for an event with some dear Kenyan people who live here in Northern Ireland. There is a lot to do but we are looking forward to the day very much.
Thank you for your continued prayers.
