Some days I’m overwhelmed by Grace. Caught up in the avalanche of it. Some days grace is like a slow spring day sprinkling of rain. It’s beads trace my cheeks as I gaze into the sky.
Have you ever stopped to consider the grace that permits us to pray? A grace that torn asunder the separation that stood between man and a Holy God? No longer are we segregated by linens. We have direct relationship with God, Jesus our Holy High Priest.
Today, a friend (Russ) is on a flight to the Horn of Africa for the next week & a half, where he will minister in a highly Muslim populated area. While there he’ll be assisting a partner of the Austin Stone who currently serves through medical assistance, fitness, and women’s development. As you may know, this area of Africa holds a very special place in Russ & Elora’s heart as they are in the process of adopting from this region.
His wife, Elora, was also supposed to go on the trip, but due to a Gall Bladder infection had surgery to have it removed this past Tuesday afternoon.
I am asking that you would pray for Russ and the rest of the workers over the next couple weeks. Pray for safety, peace, encouragement, health, and open hearts both for the team serving as well as the people they are ministering to. Please also pray for Elora as she heals, that the healing would be quick and without any problems.
Thank you so much!
