Update October 3, 2010

When we look at all God has done for us over the past 9 months, we are amazed!  Yet, He tells us we have seen nothing of His plan yet… 

Immediately after the earthquake, He gave me Isaiah 41:10 –  “Don’t be afraid, for I am with you.  Do not be dismayed, for I am your God.  I will strengthen you.  I will help you.  I will uphold you with My victorious right hand.”

I have really seen clearly that, because we have a relationship with a loving God, there is no place for fear.  Though it seems the whole world has fallen around us, we have not been discouragedWe simply know God is up to something!  He has strengthened us when we didn’t think we had the strength to go on.  He has helped us when we didn’t know what to do next.  He has constantly held our hands and lifted us up above our circumstances!  We are all stronger today only because of Him!

I’m back in Orlando for a couple days to clean up the office and pack for another trip, this time to Austria for two weeks.    Terry will preach this morning in Haiti, then board a plane to join me so we can fly out on Tuesday morning. 

Please pray for this trip that, everywhere we go, we will deliver His glory!  We will preach in at least four different locations while in Austria, starting and ending in Salzburg, and return home on October 19.  It has been many years since we have seen our ‘family’ in AustriaWe are all excited to be reunited!  The Austrians have been so generous to us over the years and especially after the earthquake.  They have some wonderful meetings and a benefit concert for Haiti set up for us!  We can’t wait to say ‘Thank You’ in person!  

Sometimes, we are so busy helping the Haitians, who are still in ‘survival mode’, that it is impossible to find a minute to even send a quick ‘thank you’.  We often ask God to tell you ‘Thank You’ on our behalf… From your response, He has done just that!  He says that ‘when you do it unto the least of them, you have done it unto Me!’ and He says ‘Those who give to the poor will never lack!’  That’s HIS Word!  We appreciate you more than you know!  So does God!  It’s been a joy to us to see the Body of Christ work together to help those in need… not caring who gets the credit!

We have a long way to go, but as we look back, we can only see His hand at work!
