Chapter 26: Trust

…for if this plan or this work is of men, it will come to nothing; but if it is of God, you cannot overthrow it—lest you even be found to fight against God.

Acts 5:38-39

God is awesome.  It is amazing how many times I have to remind myself that when we pursue the call of God in our lives that He is faithful and provides!  It seems silly after all my family has been through that I forget this.  Maybe that is the struggle of our fallen humanity, that we need to be in continuous communion with Him so that we never take our eyes off of Jesus.  To seek Him in the sunny days, so that when storms come, we hardly notice.

We have had some busy days in the recent weeks.  I am thankful that even with the shop closed, we find ourselves hard at work.  God is moving in this city and we are so thankful to be surrounded by people in pursuit of Him.  Part of our time has been to help our good friends, the Adams, set up their new Worship Center.  The grand opening  will be this month.  .  From here we will be able to help partner with other missions and ministries in the city, and it is located in the main square!

What a blessing! God has moved on every prayer request from last month!  I understand and appreciate those that pursue the Polish language as a ministry tool.  Yet it amazes me that God continues to bring internationals that find themselves in Krakow, who prefer to speak English, as reoccurring ministry opportunities.  My frustrations with a lack of the ability to communicate have dissipated as ministry opportunities in English abound. God is awesome!

Two meetings that really amazed me were for the Honduran Coffee connection and the bible study with young adults.  Both went better than we could have imagined.  We are excited to see where God takes these meetings and hope to have some major updates soon!

As we thank you for your continued prayer support, please continue to pray for our family with these in mind:

  • We hope to continue a bible study in the upcoming weeks at our house for some of our young adult friends
  • We are trying to build relationships with our neighbors through Michelle’s gift of baking.
  • English conversations with our coffee people
  • Worship nights, youth nights, and prayer meetings
  • Building relationships with the parents of Loralie’s friends
  • A project to connect our shops with a coffee farm in Honduras!
  • With the transition out of management, we have come to find our roles as volunteers changing.

As we approach the end of our contract for this term, we would love the opportunity to be here longer.  But we trust God and are fully surrendering our finances to God.  If you are interested in supporting us financially you can go to this website:  http://web.nazarene.org/goto/TheGraves

If you are curious what are current needs are please ask!  We would love to share more. If you would like to share your prayer requests with us, we would love to join you in prayer!

Come to Me, all you who labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest.

Matthew 11:28
