PacRim Ag Update (June 21, 2013)

PacRim Ag team members

It has been a very busy week here! We have finished the water conservation project with the help of the men from the tribe! It even poured tonight after we had finished it, God is funny like that. Today we also celebrated the commissioning of three Burmese pastors! Praise God! We will be teaching English tomorrow morning to the local children, about 20 in all. I have never officially taught English before so it should be interesting. We will be going to the demonstration farm in the afternoon and will be "budding" (cutting off then burning the base of the horns) young goats tomorrow, which also should be interesting....

We will be leaving Monday to go to another province to work in a children's hostile. While there we will be teaching English, establishing FAITH (food always in the home) gardens, and ministering to the children. We will be there for two weeks. It will be weird to be away from the home office for that long, we have just now become familiar with this city. But Christ will use us where we are. I have seen God move in some incredible ways in just the little time we have been here and am excited to see what He will do in the oncoming days and weeks. Thank you so much for your prayers and encouragement along the way!!! Here are some things you can pray specifically for:

  • unity for our team
  • safety as we go out
  • remembering to constantly be in prayer
  • look to God for guidance and wisdom
  • the Holy Spirit to go before us and soften hearts
  • language barrier
  • to not become distracted, stay focused
  • confess sins to each other 
  • a heart for the lost and broken
  • be willing to go outside of our comfort zone to be Christ to people

These are just a few of them but they are some of the things we as a team think are priorities. Again, thank you so much for all you do for us and for your faithfulness! You are such a blessing!
