God has not let me come here without answering prayers. Here are four that you have had a hand in….
- Lacey has been praying for me to find a way to eat well here. Unfortunately, I have a rather bad way of dealing with stress and not liking the food here as much as I would like: I do not eat enough. However, this week, God answered our prayers that I would find a healthy fix to this problem, and it came in the form of a BBQ place on Kunming. Kunming is a block from my house, and there is a little place that has lamb and chicken (among various other, stranger seafood things) shish-kabobs that you can pick from. Then they BBQ them right there for you and you can walk away with dinner, or in my case, breakfast for the next morning. I found out tonight that they are not open on Sundays, however, so that is a little disappointing.
- My paycheck came on Friday, and I think I have enough money now to get a keyboard! I am excited, and I would like prayer for that– please pray for wisdom in choosing a keyboard that could potentially be a blessing to The Aroma Church as well.
- Joanna, my friend, prayed that my 6th grade class would go well on Friday, and it did! Every Friday we have a reading day, where the students go through chapter from a book (Nicholas Nickleby, very abridged) and answer some questions about it. But I have made it a reading competition day, and Nicholas Nickleby is the 2nd book for the semester, so I changed up the competition. Last week was the first time and it went pretty rough, so I was praying that it would go much better this week. And guess what? It did! Please pray that it would continue to go well. The students have to write a summary of the chapter and that the kids would learn how to write well and comprehend the book’s content.
- I have been asking God for musical opportunities, and they are coming. I am on the worship team, so I get to play for two Sundays out of the month. This weekend there was also a Thanksgiving Day meal and worship night, so I was in a band that played about 10 songs or so yesterday (Saturday). Then today (Sunday the 22nd) I was on the worship team for church and played for the two services we had today. In another two weeks I am going to be playing piano for a wedding for someone in the church. Please pray for that! I have a big responsibility.
Thank you for your prayers! Please pray for all missionaries that you know! We need you so much!
Keep the Faith!
