Wednesday night my daughter, Hannah received a surprise in a box on our front porch. It was a large box, and when Hannah came out to see what was in the box out popped “Chivis,” her friend from Mexico City.
Chivis lived with us last school year for six months. You can catch up some on that adventure here…
We are excited to host her again for three weeks! While she’s here apart from continuing her school work, she will enjoy some good time with our family.
One special event we have coming up is Hannah’s graduation tomorrow on Saturday, May 12th. Thank you, Jesus that Chivis can join us and celebrate with us!
The Silva family are dear friends of ours from Mexico City. We are praying that they will be able to join us on the border in ministry. Mario and Silvia are wonderfully gifted servants. We loved ministering with them in Mexico, and it would be a dream come true to have them work alongside us on the border.
One of the things that has held up their move is our move. They are waiting for us to sell our house, and get settled in before they make the transition. In the meantime we are praying with them, and seeking the Lord’s perfect timing. It’s not always easy to wait, but as I mentioned in an earlier post if God truly rules over all we don’t have anything to worry about.
Mario is such a great friend, and blessing to me. Recently he sent me some promises from the Bible to lift me up. Here they are. I hope they are a shot in the arm for you as well!
“You keep him in perfect peace whose mind is stayed on you, because he trusts in you. Trust in the Lord forever, for the Lord God is an everlasting rock.” —Isaiah 26:3,4 ESV
“Praise the Lord! Blessed is the man who fears the Lord, who greatly delights in his commandments! His offspring will be mighty in the land; the generation of the upright will be blessed. Wealth and riches are in his house, and his righteousness forever. Light dawns in the darkness for the upright; he is gracious, merciful, and righteous. It is well with the man who deals generously and lends; who conducts his affairs with justice. For the righteous will never be moved; he will be remembered forever. He is not afraid of bad news; his heart is firm, trusting in the Lord. His heart is steady; he will not be afraid, until he looks in triumph on his adversaries.” —Psalm 112:1-8 ESV
Aren’t those rich promises. Thank you Lord for such wonderful promises. Thank you for such wonderful love. Praise the Lord with us!
In His Grip, Dave
