As You sent Me into the world, I also have sent them into the world. And for their sakes I sanctify Myself, that they also may be sanctified by the truth. I do not pray for these alone, but also for those who will believe in Me through their word; that they all may be one, as You, Father, are in Me, and I in You; that they also may be one in Us, that the world may believe that You sent Me.” John 17:18-21
The past month of April has been very busy for our family. The Lord allowed us to share our hearts and vision for Asia with over 10 ministries. Some ministries had 10 people, others had hundreds, but in every engagement there were hearts to receive the vision and call the Lord has given us. Although we are raising monthly finances, this isn’t our main focus. Our focus is to share our hearts with the Body of Christ, expose the work in Asia, encourage, challenge, and to mobilize and work together as one.
…And they said to Him, “We have here only five loaves and two fish.” He said, “Bring them here to Me.” Then He commanded the multitudes to sit down on the grass. And He took the five loaves and the two fish, and looking up to heaven, He blessed and broke and gave the loaves to the disciples; and the disciples gave to the multitudes.” Matthew 14:16-19
God is good all the time. Even when we think we have nothing, we have everything in Him. He is our provision, and He has graciously been providing the finances we need to live in Asia. We are still short of our monthly goal, but we have faith that He will continue to provide through His people in His time. This passage in Matthew speaks volumes to our family (v.19). He has blessed us, broken us, and now giving us over to be used for His purpose and glory.
