I just redesigned and updated my website a couple nights ago, detailing more about my staff appointment with Engineering Ministries International (eMi). Check it out at www.JohnAgee.com.
Praise God for already providing 17% of my monthly support needs! I am currently sending out letters detailing this next season of my life and planning to meet with potential ministry partners over the next few months, so I look forward to meeting with many of you soon. Please join me in praying for these meetings and that God would lead and provide. If you would like to partner with me on a monthly basis, please contact me, and I would be happy to let you know how you can get involved. Thank you so much for your prayers as I trust God through this process!
Due to the Perspectives on the World Christian Movement class and support raising activities, I have decided not to travel internationally over the next 5 months. However, I am looking forward to attending World Mandate 2010 at Antioch Community Church in Waco, TX next weekend with one of my former roommates! God continues to provide amazing direction and inspiration as I seek and trust Him. In some ways, it will be difficult for me to stay in the U.S. over the next few months, but I know that God will use my time here for His purposes and His glory. Please pray especially for Mr. Matthew’s family, our host family in Nigeria, as they were looking forward to me returning to work on Prayers Farm. Todd, who stayed to receive the shipping container, has returned to his family in Florida, and it looks like no one from the U.S. will be going back to Nigeria until September or October. Also pray that Mr. Matthew’s young daughter, Immanulla would be healed. She has been in the hospital for over 3 days now. Continue praying that God would provide for Prayers Farm and guide the eMi team as we finalize our plans and report.
Last Friday night, I joined the eMi intern orientation as they all shared their testimonies. Praise God for bringing around 30 interns to eMi for the upcoming semester and for each of their stories that point to Him! They will spend the spring semester in offices around the world: Canada, the UK, Uganda, India, Costa Rica, and Colorado Springs. I look forward to sharing in some of what God does in and through their lives as I have opportunity to volunteer in the Colorado Springs office.
Most of you have probably felt compelled to pray for the situation in Haiti, and I trust that God is at work in awesome ways through the pain and destruction there. EMI has designed over 80 projects in Haiti and has many ministry connections there. A team of 8 with eMi is currently helping with water and structural assessment. Please lift this team up in prayer as they work with Samaritan’s Purse, Food for the Hungry, and other ministries and local churches. You can follow updates or donate toward eMi’s teams at http://emiworld.org/proj_Haiti10_earthQ.html.
Your steadfast love, O LORD, extends to the heavens,
your faithfulness to the clouds.
Your righteousness is like the mountains of God;
your judgments are like the great deep;
man and beast you save, O LORD.
How precious is your steadfast love, O God!
The children of mankind take refuge in the shadow of your wings.
They feast on the abundance of your house,
and you give them drink from the river of your delights.
For with you is the fountain of life;
in your light do we see light.
Praying for God’s steadfast love, salvation, and delight to be evident in Haiti,
