BBQ, AKA “Answer to Prayer”

God has not let me come here without answering prayers. Here are four that you have had a hand in….

  1. 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.
  2. 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.
  3. 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.
  4. 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!

    Thank the Lord for BBQ’s… but mostly for mentor Lacey with all her prayers and suggestions!! It sounds like a great way to get you eating well again, babe. We are definitely going to have to do that BBQ! ( the lamb is what my mouth’s watering for already)
