I am in the middle of another exciting week at Engineering Ministries International, my third week of full-time work. The following are some highlights from the past few weeks:
- Listening to testimonies from project trips to Kenya and Rwanda
- Working with staff and interns on plans and reports for Nigeria, Uganda, Kenya, Rwanda, and North Africa projects
- Hours of design review for a vocational school project and a hospital project
- Volunteering with most of the staff and interns for a local Habitat for Humanity fence-building project at a Colorado Springs home (picture below)
- Moving the Hoffmans (returning staff) into their new home in Colorado Springs
Please join me in praying specifically for our mid-year day of prayer and fasting tomorrow, Thursday, July 22. We will start with a corporate time of worship and prayer, spend several hours in solitude prayer for individual and eMi guidance, pray in small groups for several hours, and close our time with sharing and praise. Ask that God would renew our minds and spirits as we seek Him, and that His will would be accomplished in Christ Jesus as His Spirit works through our lives. May our prayer be filled with thanksgiving and joy for what God is doing personally and corporately through eMi. Praise the Lord for this opportunity to seek His face throughout an entire day! I will be lifting all of you up in prayer throughout the day as God leads, too, so please share anything specific that you would like prayer for. I thank God for the blessing of partnering with you in proclaiming the gospel to the nations through design!
I thank my God in all my remembrance of you, always in every prayer of mine for you all making my prayer with joy, because of your partnership in the gospel from the first day until now. And I am sure of this, that he who began a good work in you will bring it to completion at the day of Jesus Christ. It is right for me to feel this way about you all, because I hold you in my heart, for you are all partakers with me of grace, both in my imprisonment and in the defense and confirmation of the gospel. For God is my witness, how I yearn for you all with the affection of Christ Jesus. And it is my prayer that your love may abound more and more, with knowledge and all discernment, so that you may approve what is excellent, and so be pure and blameless for the day of Christ, filled with the fruit of righteousness that comes through Jesus Christ, to the glory and praise of God.
