God is Opening Doors

Revelation 3:8 (NKJ) I know your works. See, I have set before you an open door, and no one can shut it; for you have little strength, have kept My word, and have not denied My name.

These past few months have been trying to say the least. However, we have found strength in the Lord and have kept God's word as our guide. In recent weeks two opportunities have presented themselves. First, an opportunity for Aaron to possibly teach at Uganda Baptist Seminary in Jinja, Uganda. Second, to work with Multi Ministries in South Africa. Aaron is planning a trip to Africa in August to visit both of these ministries to see if one of these is where God may have us serve full-time.

Please continue to pray for wisdom and discernment for us. We know God has a perfect plan for our family. The hardest thing is not to get ahead of His plans and to remain patient. With Aaron only having one more year left to teach at Miami University, I sometimes feel the time crunch and get anxious about what is next. However, I believe that God is very aware of this and all things will work out according to His perfect plan. Our family so appreciates the love, support, and prayers that we have received from so many of you. We thank you for showing the love of Jesus to our family through this stretching time.
