Last week, I posted about Madonna going to Malawi. I followed that up with a post about a family that has followed God's call in their lives to go minister to the children of Malawi. Today, I received a lovely email, and request, from that family. I thought about trying to summarize it, but decided it would be best to share it with you directly.
We have recently been made aware of your interest in our ministry in Malawi and your blog comments on our activities. I would like to thank you for your support, especially in the realm of prayers for our success and continued health. I would ask, however that you make sure you give ALL glory to God, as without His working our efforts would be nil. Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father which is in heaven. Matthew 5:16
Many times since we have been here our flesh has longed to give up the fight and return home. Without divine help, all would have been lost long ago. For it is God which worketh in you both to will and to do of his good pleasure. Philippians 2:13
Please continue to pray and ask those who you communicate with to pray as well. We are only one small link in the lives of the children we touch and they need all of our prayers to succeed in a realm of darkness. We commit them to God’s care, for only He knows their end.
In God’s Grace,
With that in mind, please keep this family, their ministry and the children of Malawi in your prayers.
