Prayer Letter 20/08/11

Today we applied for our visas! It was a great relief to get the applications in. We find out in roughly two weeks if this application has been successful. This feels like a long wait but I am sure it will fly in. We can’t believe that we have been moved out of our house for over a month now, & we are due to move to South Africa in 46 days! It seems very, very close & with so much to do before we can even contemplate moving. We hope to ship our stuff to SA in the next week or two, we are exploring our options for health insurance, we need a further 57 people to gift £10 a month & we need this visas to be granted

It looks like an un-climb-able mountain from my point of view at the moment, but with God all things are possible & we trust He will continue to move the barriers in our way. We have seen God answer prayer after prayer & all we can do is say thank you. Thank you to God & thank you to you, we have seen God answer your prayers for us in a really practical way, & we value your prayers immeasurably. Prayer is a mystery to me but what I can say for certain is that prayer is vital, when people pray God acts. Without God we would not have got this far & He will get us the whole way. He has been practically teaching us to walk in faith & prayer.

As we step into this new chapter of life thank you for standing with us in prayer.

At this time could you please pray for:

  • Praise God for His faithfulness & provision.
  • That God would speak to people about joining with us & supporting us financially monthly.
  • Favour with the South African Embassy that the visas would be issued with no hitches.
  • That God would be with the boys & prepare them to move to SA, that He would be their grounding & safety
  • Protection from the enemy for all four of us.
  • Healing for Kate from diabetes.
  • God’s wisdom in how to say our goodbyes to family & friends in a healthy way.
  • That intimacy with Jesus would always be our focus & vision…

Thank you for your time & prayers,

Richie, Kate, Joseph & Reuben
