As we mark a decade of the gospel in Itutang and the celebrated season of Thanksgiving, we have been taking time to read through journals and remember some of the highs and lows of the last ten years. Today’s remembrance comes with praise to an Almighty God and a Thank You – to YOU. He heard your prayers and kept us in the tribe in 2009 when my allergies were threatening to kick us out. Thank you for your faithfulness in upholding us body, mind, and soul. We seriously couldn’t be here if you weren’t there. THANK YOU.
Nov 25, 2009 Dear Prayer Warriors and Sending Churches,
Hello! Bill here. I want to thank you so much for your prayers. The Lord has helped me, and I am doing a lot better. My eyes got to the point to where I was rubbing them so much and they were almost completely swollen shut and very painful for several days last week. We are thankful for everyone’s prayer and help. Being in a remote location where you are exposed to so many different kinds of things, allergies can be a little scary. I know a lot of people that have had to leave the tribe because of them and so I am so thankful the Lord has helped me through this and answered your many prayers on my behalf. Thank you. Please continue to pray for the church in here as well. They need so much yet and we are not anywhere near finished with the work in here.
As we prayed together this morning, we thanked the Lord that I was able to stay in 2009 and that the allergies I battle now are minimal compared to what I went through back then. We also thanked Him for YOU. So thankful to be part of the Body of Christ.
By God’s Grace & For His Glory~
Bill and Kelley
