Looking Back and Looking Ahead
The last year held its challenges, but we have also seen God continue to move around the world. Thank you for partnering with us through prayer and financial support in 2020!
With God’s help, YOU enabled:
Our missionary pastors, Gayle and Micki Woods and David and Zenia Woods, to continue their work in the Cayman Islands,
Pastor George to continue leading the church in Ghana and training prospective church leaders,
A benevolence offering to be sent to our brothers and sisters in Bolivia who suffered the loss of loved ones due to COVID-19,
Larry and Christy Doyle to reach 85% of their needed pledges of support to return to Papua New Guinea,
Pastor Samson to continue directing the churches and schools in Haiti in spite of political turmoil,
A family working in Asia to return to relocate in the U.S. for a year of furlough, and
The gospel to continue being shared with the unreached through church planting efforts in Myanmar.
And there are more highlights that could be listed!
The good notwithstanding, this past year may have also brought things you thought you’d never see. Perhaps there are prayers you're afraid will never be answered. As we begin a new year, let's be reminded of God's response to these thoughts. Charles Stanley, in his devotional Waiting on God, contrasts our nevers with the “always” of God. Dr. Stanley writes:
As a believer …
God will always be with you.
He will always love you.
He will always forgive your sins.
He will always listen to you.
He will always comfort you.
He will always provide for you.
He will always remember you.
He will always work on your behalf.
He will always lead you with love, power, and wisdom.
He will always bless your obedience to Him.
He will always come through for you.
He will always answer your prayers.
And when you wait on the Lord, you can know for certain that the best is yet to come …
May God bless and encourage you as you head into 2021. We serve a mighty God who is still on the throne.
