we hope this finds you all well! we thought some pictures of the last few weeks would be better than lots of words on a screen from us. To fill you in, we were feeling quite overwhelmed in the last month particularly with living here & then God said some really key things to us. Thankyou for your prayers! We have both been so assured of His goodness, compassion & pure undeserving mercy of late. He is calling us into greater intimacy with Him & we are really enjoying the sweetness of His presence on a daily basis now. We are also both feeling a lot more energised & like we really will run & not grow weary. It has been nice to waken up in the morning & feel joy, instead of feeling like “how many more hours til I can sleep again?!”
We have felt very challenged to press into more of God in the area of faith, but also stepping out in praying for healing & seeing people come into connection with Jesus for the first time. We had the privilege of joining the Bethel team in a local hospital last Friday & saw people instantly healed & children giving their lives to Jesus. I was so moved by this & felt the Lord gently rebuke me with “why are you waiting for an invitation to step out & pray for people? The harvest is ready!” We are so aware of this at the moment. People are ready all over this city to give their lives to Him & if we just look at Him, He’ll lead us to them. By the hand if necessary!
The 2 new children (7 years & 4 weeks old) are really thriving. Our resident 7 year old’s health is improving on a daily basis & as of this week we have been able to get out and about more with her, which is really encouraging. Thankyou to those who prayed for her regarding health. She is just a different little girl to the one she arrived as, just over a month ago. Thankyou Jesus! 🙂
We had a valuable visit from Grampa Wes for 2 weeks which was lovely as we got to celebrate his birthday together. We’re also really looking forward to a visit from Richie’s mum & dad in the next week. They will also be here for 2 weeks staying with us & we’re really looking forward to some quality time spent with them & the boys.
With much, much love & faith & prayers for even greater things to come,
