Dear HeartCry, Greetings in the precious name of our Almighty God, wonderful Savior and Lord Jesus Christ! I thank God this time especially for His divine protection. I'm greatly indebted to HeartCry for your faithfulness in prayers and in support, not only for the ministry but also for me.
This report is mostly all about my personal encounter with God. But I hope you will benefit from this as you will see God in this. Let me ask you to praise the LORD with me for the wonderful thing He has done for me very recently. My brother and I came across a situation with a hundred percent possibility of being dead, or at least seriously injured. We just walked through 'the valley of the shadow of death' (Ps. 23:4). But God protected and delivered us from this dreadful situation. He heard our cry for help. None of us had a bone broken nor did a hair fall. It was wholly a miracle. We have literally seen the LORD. We have "tasted and seen that the LORD is good" (Ps 34). Through this incident, the LORD has drawn us nearer to Him. He strengthened our faith. He removed all our doubts of His presence, protection and providence. He proved that we are His. My zeal and my love for Him is maximized. I thank the LORD wholeheartedly and my heartfelt thanks to you for your immediate help in response to that. Now God has given me the blessing to cherish my wife and our kids again, and to serve Him again with more passion and efforts in partnership with you. I also believe that the LORD would also provide me with what I need right now to get things fixed on time.
I would like to thank you for your recent approval for our medication expenses. As I requested you to pray for in my last report, God heard our prayers and granted me a US Visa. But please pray that I would actually be enabled to make it to the 9Marks Weekender conference in May. My planned trip to ( ) has been postponed for a few days as I think I should rest a while and take time to rejoice in the LORD with my family for the amazing and special Grace He's just bestowed on us. While in my hometown with my family since a few weeks ago, I have been preaching at a local church just outside the town that has proposed me to be the Pastor. It's a small congregation with about ten families but in great need of a spiritual leadership. Please pray that the LORD would show me His will clearly, as I am considering it with prayers. Thank you very much. I thank God for what happened for I "... know that for those who love God all things work together for good, for those who are called according to his purpose" (Romans 8:28).
To God alone be the Glory forever and ever! Yours in His amazing Grace,
