Yesterday, Churches across the world sang the famous hymn "Facing a task unfinished." This is a favourite of mine and William's. We sang it at the recent missionary convention we were involved in and, like many across the world, we sang it yesterday in two different services. It reminds us of the great need there is to bring the Gospel to those who are still lost in sin. The task is not yet complete.
Thank you for praying for us as we endeavour to do our part. We thank God for His help this past week in meetings. We were blessed to share in a Church in Belfast and thank God for the continued prayers of His people.
This incoming week we have two more meetings. We will both share at the prayer meeting and I will share at a ladies' craft morning. Quite a variety this week.
Please pray for these opportunities and ask that God will help us and guide us in preparation.
Pray for William at his course. He has just 3 weeks and 1 assignment left... 3 years almost complete.
Please also pray that we will have continued discernment in all we do. Over the years we have been conscious of the devil fighting against us. From time to time we are contacted by people who have an unhealthy interest in the work and whose motives are questionable. The Lord always shows us and reveals the truth of these situations. However, we know that we always need to be on our guard and continually seeking Him for wisdom and protection. Please pray to this end.
Finally we would ask you to pray very much for our ongoing office situation in Kenya. This is now quite an urgent matter for prayer. Substantial funds are needed in a very short space of time and also we need clarity on the situation. Please make this a priority for prayer. We are trusting God and asking Him to work everything out for good.
As long as the task is unfinished, the devil will continue to fight.... but the Lord will continue to have victory. Whilst we prefer the original hymn, without the new chorus, we know that most important is the challenge brought to us to work for the Lord while it is day. We hope you too will be burdened for souls as you view the video and listen to these great words.
