We can’t believe our husbands are about to be back home Saturday! They have had an absolute amazing time. The Spragg family has been so awesome loving on our husbands! Charity has been the one sending all the pictures and videos to us for the blog! It is going to be so bittersweet for our guys to have to leave the Spraggs and for them to have to say goodbye again. We are so thankful for the opportunity the guys had to go serve along side of our family and brother and sister in Christ! One of the guys sent his wife a message saying “his heart had been broken and the Lord has filled it with His spirit.” The Lord is so so good!
Yesterday, the guys were able to finish building the Gogos house. She was praising God for her new house. They also were able to go on more home visits yesterday! What a blessing it is to be able to love on each person at their home and provide some food for them! When you see how thankful they are for just a few basic things, you realize how much we take things for granted. What if we were to REALLY live as if everything we have is not ours? God will use what we have for His glory if we surrender all to Him. Last night, the guys did some laundry and the power went out before dinner. Some of the Swazi staff cooked them a Swazi meal and they ate dinner with their hands by candlelight. Today, the guys went on a Hike. They said they really have seen a “dry and weary land.” That verse is something we just read over and not think much about especially with all the rain we have had, but there they have lost many animals, people, and crops because of the drought.
23 “Am I a God at hand, declares the LORD, and not a God far away? 24 Can a man hide himself in secret places so that I cannot see him? declares the LORD. Do I not fill heaven and earth? declares the LORD. ”
33 “Oh, the depth of the riches and wisdom and knowledge of God! How unsearchable are his judgments and how inscrutable his ways! 34 “For who has known the mind of the Lord, or who has been his counselor?” 35 “Or who has given a gift to him that he might be repaid?”
36 For from him and through him and to him are all things. To him be glory forever. Amen.”
Pray for our husbands as they travel home. Also be praying for the Spragg family as they will have to say goodbye again. Pray that they will continue to feel all of our prayers and see God move in mighty ways!
We worship a GREAT God! So thankful He has not hidden himself from us, but He is very much at hand! Praising God today for the work He has accomplished through our husbands. Praying that the Swazis would cling to the Lord, know He is faithful, trust him, honor him, and see Him glorified in their people! Nothing is impossible with our God!
