Your Life is a Journey You Must Travel with a Deep Consciousness of God.
1 Peter 1:17 The Message

I have been home 7 days as of today (November 24), I feel rested and physically well, as I prepare for my trip to China. This morning I read 1 Peter 1. In The Message the first verse translates “an apostle on assignment by Jesus …writing to the exiles scattered … Not one is missing, not one forgotten. God the Father has His eye on each of you.”

I had to smile, thinking “I am writing, but I am the one typically scattered to the ends of the earth.” I smiled thinking of the thousands of children, orphans and widows I have seen over the past year that He is keeping His eye on. Their faces are etched in my memory, but what brings me peace and joy is knowing they are “written on the palms of His hands” (Isaiah 49:16)

I am humbled and honored by the privilege and responsibility to carry the Good News to distant lands. Your prayers and emails of encouragement during our assignment in India inspired, comforted and fueled us each day to press on. Our days are numbered by the King we serve. We must be about His business, adding to the Kingdom, bringing glory to the Son, exhibiting our love for Him in acts of kindness and service to the disenfranchised, the hopeless, and the helpless in this world. We are ushering in the Kingdom of Heaven here on earth, and there is no greater way to do so than in practicing pure religion undefiled (James 1:27)

Pull out your Prayer Passport, make sure you have your Intercessor’s Ticket and join the work He is doing through Sunshine After Rain Ministries in China. The Harvest of 1 Billion souls is ripe – beseech the Lord of the Harvest!
