Thankful Thursday


3 more days to go and it’s my birthday
4 more days to go and we’re off to the mission’s conference.

Today I just want to thank God for the many things HE has been teaching me for the past few weeks.

I have never worked so hard like what I am doing now to meet the funds needed for the trip. Office work during the day, after office hours we will sell barbecue just outside the church and after that when everybody else is already in their beds, we will start printing t-shirts which hubby will deliver the next day.

I admit, it’s very tiring physically and emotionally. As of this writing, my husband Rudolf is resting because he has severe back pain this morning.

So what did I learn through all of this?

That…

ALL THINGS ARE POSSIBLE WITH GOD.

I CAN DO ALL THINGS THROUGH CHRIST WHO STRENGTHENS ME

ALL OUR LABOR IN THE LORD IS NOT IN VAIN

And I THANK HIM FOR ALL THOSE PERSONAL LESSONS.

Girls, If it is not too much of you, Can I again ask for your prayers? Because on the conference we are given a 10 minutes presentation for the ministry we are doing and we would like this presentation to be more challenging and at the same time encouraging to our fellow missionaries.

If you want to know about the conference, here’s the website and you can get info of our ministry here.

Before I go, welcome back Iris and just want to let you know that you are doing good in your photography. Thank you Lori for the 2 thankful Thursday you hosted.

Blessings to everyone!

May the Lord fill you with strength these next few days as you prepare to leave for conference. May all your needed funding be met, hubby's back feel much better and your birthday celebration be extra special and sweet! May the Lord also fill you to overflowing at the conference. May you find rest for your weary body and soul.

Be blessed and stay safe!

Thanks so much for such kind words when you visited my blog!

I will be praying for you and your husband, dear Sister. I know God will bless your trip more "than you could ever ask or imagine." Dear Sister, thank you for your obedience. Wow! Working so hard for fundraising. God will honor that!

Happy Birthday, dear one!

Lord, thank You for this dear Sister in Christ. I pray blessing on her birthday and this mission trip. Lord, I thank You for a mighty hedge of protection around them. Lord, thank You for Your favor. Thank You, Lord that You will fill their mouths with YOUR words, saying just the right things. Thank You, Lord, for these obedient hearts. Praise You, God!
