Monday Morning Message

March 10, 2015

Dear Prayer Partners,

“Dear friends, although I was very eager to write to you about the salvation that we share, I felt I had to write and urge you to contend for the faith that was once for all entrusted to the saints; for certain men, whose condemnation was written about long ago, have secretly snuck in among you; these are godless men who change the grace of our God into a license for immorality, and deny Jesus Christ, our only Sovereign and Lord “ (Jude 3,4). This week in the news I read that many of our American teens are heading for Syria to join ISIS. The statistics indicate that amongst teens the suicide rate is really high. Joining ISIS may be a more acceptable way of committing suicide. Those who have secretly reached out to our teens and encouraged them to join their army of “thugs” are for sure, now in America.  Some of our international students are now being approached by “certain men” and encouraged to get involved in immorality, and the godless efforts to deny Jesus. Pray for our international students, that they will come to know Christ. Thanks for your prayers for us. 

This picture describes the fun of having international students come to our house on Sunday nights for a meal and for Bible Study. This past Sunday Marissa, from Malaysia, led the study from 1 Timothy 1. 

This is a picture of Tiffany, from Malaysia, who now has an internship in Tampa, FL. Our friends, Richard and Elaine, joined me in helping Tiffany get her belongings to her new apartment in Florida. 

Pray for us as we prepare for our up-coming trips. This Saturday our American volunteer, Curt, will take students to view the SandHill Cranes in the Kearney area. Pray that these students will be impacted for Christ on this trip. Our next trip will be to Texas and Missouri. The ISI staff in Dallas and Houston will help us with the itinerary and lodging. This trip will be for 9 days, so pray for the time we spend with students during UNL Spring Break. We will make it a fun trip, visiting sights and parks that are of interest. Pray for safety, and for the many conversations we engage in with students. Students from Dallas and Houston will be giving their testimonies, and an astronaut in Houston will also share his testimony with us.
We have been struggling with sinus infections, so pray for our health. We also are continuing our efforts to recruit American volunteers to serve in one of the many ISI capacities. This past week I had an opportunity to share the Gospel with Ertong, from China, who I have known for about 2 years. Pray for Ryan, an American, who has been attending our Bible Study, to grow in his new life in Christ. Pray also for the students who will be baptized on April 10th.  Thanks for praying for us. We are grateful.
