Angela more with crutches than with wheel chair


We are so glad, that Angela's leg improves further. She can walk more and more with crutches and may put 80-90% of her weight on the leg.
A side effect is, that she has pain in her knee, which is not used to the weight any more. But we are hopeful, that with the continued physical therapy the pain will go away as the body readjusts to normal weight bearing.

LRF support group


Thank you so much for your continued prayers for this area. We are so glad for people who started supporting the LRF regularly.
We are also thankful for the promise of assistance for one more student. This is such an encouragement for us and the student.
I just as I write got a bigger one time gift from an alumni for students assistance. HOW great are you Lord Jesus! Thank you!


Member Care


The visit of our member care colleague was such a good time. She spend time with us talking and evaluating our lives. We hadn't been to surprised, that both of us are going towards a burn out. The good thing is, that we got some tools on how to prevent it to get worse. We cannot change our circumstances but we can change how we respond to it.
I personally started to have half a day every week (doesn't happen always...) for extended prayer, meditation and thinking. This was so far very helpful to get things sorted out in my mind. It takes stress away as I cast it on the Lord.
He showed me two problems in my life: business and self-pity. I am so busy because of all the things I believe I have to accomplish, and then I make others feel sorry for me. Instead of doing what God wants me to do and listening to his guidance. I would like to learn more to trust him and not myself trying to fix everything.
Psalm 43 was a helpful for me in this. As the psalm writer cast his situation and feelings on the Lord and asked for his guidance. He came to the conclusion
Why are you cast down, O my soul, and why are you in turmoil within me? Hope in God; for I shall again praise him, my salvation and my God.
Would you pray for us, that we trust more in God and less in men.
Our full-time staff took the assessment too. They are also on red alert. We started to meet with them to so how they could change their life style put more burn out prevention activities into their lives.
Please pray that we all together would focus on the Lord and his leading for all of us. We are so glad that God will lead us and never forsake us.


Visitors


Starting the end of the month we will have many visitors during the next few month. We are looking forward to having them here and are exited about God bringing help and encouragement to us.
Some are coming to work and help out. Some for member care for us. Some to look at ministry possibilities at the LRF and with our alumni and in other ways.
Please pray that this would be fruitful, spirit lead encounters, so that we would be mutually encouraged by each other's faith.

Farm


Thank you for your prayers. We started to make virgin coconut oil, but need some more practice. The result is not how it should be. But it might be the cold weather. We will continue to try it. Please pray that God would show us what he wants us to do. So we would relay 100% on him.
We cleaned a big area of land form grass and had corn planted as feed for our chicken and goats. Please pray for a good harvest.
Pray for wisdom for Bong as he oversees this area of land so he would have wisdom what to plant next.



Yours in ChristThe 4 As
