Thanks to God
Praise God for His grace in preaching in the last two weeks. Paul is grateful for Matt, a teacher in training, who took one of Paul's training classes. He did a great job!
God is so awesome! He has strengthened us to web publish many articles in the last week.
The recovery of our daughter's lost purse with all her stuff intact!
Pray for the special appointment with Rev. James in Chennai, India (see above).
Linda had a great time (with others from our family) helping in Vacation Bible School. She would appreciate prayer for making right decisions for the Children's Ministry that she is now coordinating.
We thank the Lord for taking care of our financial needs for these six years since Paul left a regular income. Each day, week, month and year have been testimony to how God can take care of a family of ten and an international ministry. Whether it is a new baby, broken down car, trip to India or wedding, He is able to provide. Praise Him!
Requests to God
In the next ten days final plans, plane tickets, India prayer letter and handouts for the actual messages must be finished. Pastor Stephen is still busy organizing several aspects there in India. Paul would rather write a sermon than make plane reservations (it is tedious timing in and out of India).
Pray for heart peace (God's peace) for Paul and Linda in these next weeks before the wedding. (Also safety as Paul works around the house getting things ready).
Paul will be teaching in the next couple weeks, both parenting classes (3 left) and Sunday training.
We are seeking to get away as a family after the wedding sometime ( or perhaps after India).
'Biblical Parenting Principles for Toddlers and Up' should be print published before the documentary comes out (after August). Pray for this. The advantage to outside publishing is that it can be printed, sold and shipped (much cheaper) in different locales (such as UK).
Someone has asked us to write an article on how/why to have your children join their parents in worship service. Due this week.
