November 2009 prayer letter
Already we find ourselves at the end of a very long, fast journey. But it's not really the end - it's also the beginning of the next leg of the journey! We're amazed that time has passed so quickly, and that this is already our last prayer letter before heading home for our first home-assignment.
Looking back, we know that we could not have drug ourselves through all of the difficulties, all of the hurts, and all of the tough lessons without your prayers and encouraging words. And we know that we still need your prayers as we continue this journey.
Even though it can take some work to get these letters out every month, it's always exciting when we do because of all of the responses we get back from all of you! Thanks for your encouragement and thanks for bearing with us.
God bless you as you read this letter, and then as we see each other face-to-face once more in the coming months!
"For consider your calling, brethren, that there were not many wise according to the flesh, not many mighty, not many noble; but God has chosen the foolish things of the world to shame the wise, and God has chosen the weak things of the world to shame the things which are strong, and the base things of the world and the despised God has chosen, the things that are not, so that He may nullify the things that are, so that no man may boast before God." (1 Corinthians 1:26-29)
