Oh give thanks to the LORD

Call upon his name; make known his deeds among the peoples! Sing to him, sing praises to him; tell of all his wondrous works! Glory in his holy name; let the hearts of those who seek the LORD rejoice! Seek the LORD and his strength; seek his presence continually! (1 Chronicles 16.8-11)

This prayer has been a theme this past summer and transitioning into fall. David had brought the ark back to Jerusalem and there was this renewal of thanks and praise to who God has continued to be for them. It is is the same with us today. There are many storms still brewing that are affecting lives, yet God remains faithful and his love is steadfast. I encourage you to read the whole prayer in 1 Chronicles that your spirit would be encouraged and strengthened in who God is to you!

Feras, Yasamin and their children have become dear friends. We get to see each other weekly. Pray for strength as they raise these three beautiful children as well as pursue eduction to fulfill Swedish requirements for their careers.
The first week of August, I had the opportunity for a 5-day backpacking trip in the middle of a national forest for a silent retreat. The days were spent hiking to new locations while getting to pray and process with Jesus. The afternoons and evenings I enjoyed reading, journaling and just sitting in silence. Very thankful for the nature I got to explore as I got to hike about 18 miles!
Our good friend Sajid has finally gotten his wife and daughter to Sweden. After a two year process, they arrived a week ago. We are super excited to get to know Asifa and their daughter. Pray for the crazy transition they are in learning a new culture, language and living without being surrounded by family.

The Lord has blessed us with incredible community of people from many nations. We are thankful for their friendship, food and time. Yet we pray that they would get to experience the fullness of God’s love for them and their families. Please continue to pray with me for this neighborhood to encourage the Living Hope!

It has been a few years now since I have had the opportunity to fellowship with you face to face. Although COVID may hinder some things, I am moving forward to be state side January through March of 2021! These next few weeks I will be working out a schedule to get to visit churches and you! If you know of any churches that would like to hear about the ministry work here, please get us in touch!

Praying for you. May the Lord bless you and encourage your heart this morning with the reality that He is a firm foundation regardless of the story you may find yourself in. Thankful to have your running with me in this journey!
