Whoever is faithful with very little will also be faithful with much,
- Luke 16:10
Time and time again we are caught in the whirlwind of all of what God’s doing here in Munich. It has and is a huge blessing that we have an avenue to serve here. We find it crucial to give thanks to God time and time again for bringing us to this land, this church and also for the various ministries we are leading. It has been a little over a year and our lives have gone from a search of His Purpose to His Promise revealed in tiny pockets of opportunities to be faithful. We don’t recognize our lives. Every time we approach His throne, we realize how everything changed for us the minute we said “Here we are, send us”
This past couple of months have been nothing short of a miracle. We had the pleasure of hosting our mentor, friend and possibly one of the wisest Women we both know, Barbara Nicaud. It was an honor to have an evening where she could pray and bless the people we lead here. We continuously learn so much from all that she is doing and from her faithfulness to every single thing God gives her. She worked with us in the Café, went shopping and cooked us several meals. Through it all, she blessed the nation with everything she did. Thank you that you were here Barbara. Words cannot explain how grateful we are.
Shortly after both of us had to dive deep into the work we were doing here. Building up leaders with leadership principles and more importantly helping them achieve a balanced Christian life and leading others in discipleship. As we both invest more and more in people, we realize more and more what being a true disciple of Christ truly means. To put Jesus above all, to lay down your life, your wishes, your desires, your wants, your righteousness and to carry your cross. It is not an easy call, but the constant Love that pours out on us reminds us of our first Love and who He is to us. Encountering Him on a regular basis is a privileg and escape for us.
Keep praying that God moves the Christians of this land to hunger more, and to seek God’s Presence fervently.
As we prepare to welcome a new family member, we depend heavily on God’s provision. With every blessing, God has stretched our faith and increased our trust in Him. From trusting Him to bring us to Munich, to finding an avenue of service, our apartment, and now all the expenses that come with making home for another member.
And my God will supply every need of yours according to his riches in glory in Christ Jesus.
The Bible is the reality we gauge our lives with. We do better on some days than the others. But we lean on His Grace, and we keep our eyes on Him and we press against His Heart. We seek as a family to serve Him, and Him alone.
Thank you for your love and support. Keep on keeping on.
PS: We have some of you ask what are some of our needs for this next Phase. Below is a compiled list of some of the things we need. We are always praying for you back home, and pray that all you will be blessed a thousand times over.
