Don't let the difficulties of the present moments overshadow the reality of God's promises. God's promises still stand. And God's promises are stronger than our failures.

Despite My Protests.....




My husband left this morning for a week long mission trip to Mexico. He's just across the border from McAllen, Texas at Rio Bravo. This is not an area that has been hit with Swine Flu yet but it's still scary to me. His comment was, "This is God's work...whatever happens will be in God's will." This is a picture of him counting medicine on a recent trip there. Please add he and his group to your prayer list this week.

Think positively like you always do.

And already the news is stirring hysteria about the latest item of concern.

I'll pray for his safety. Just remember the media has a tendency to make everything more of a crisis than it really is most of the time.

Yes, he will be in my prayers. And I wouldn't panic yet. The media hipes so much......and he is doing God's work, and what happens is God's will.

Praying for you both to be blessed.

Your husband, the group, and you will be in my prayers for a safe time there and return home healthy. I imagine it will be very hard waiting though.

Prayers will go on behalf of your husband and the whole group and its efforts. It's comforting to know that God is ultimately in charge of everything.

Dear Marlene -
I'm praying that God will use him and keep him in His hands, safe and well. And for you, my dear friend, I pray for peace and rest while he's away.
