What & Why
4 months of ... "Social Distancing" Cases of Covid-19 are continuing to rise here in Nicaragua and the state of the economy and the devastating impact that it is having on the families and communities here are becoming more evident each day.
*Pray for the President and Vice President of Nicaragua to come to know Christ as their Savior, and for them to seek wisdom in leadership from the Word of God
*Praise the Lord for TECHNOLOGY!
*Praise the Lord for all of the friends, family and supporting churches that have reached out to us
*For good health and the opportunity to see this amazingly exciting time in history!
As we have been reading in the book of Leviticus, we have been greatly encouraged, once again, by the Word of God, as we endure the fire.
1st Peter 1:7 says….
“These trials will show that your faith is genuine. It is being tested as fire tests and purifies gold—though your faith is far more precious than mere gold. So when your faith remains strong through many trials, it will bring you much praise and glory and honor on the day when Jesus Christ is revealed to the whole world.”
Romans 12:1 says….
“Therefore, I urge you, brothers and sisters, in view of God's mercy, to offer your bodies as a living sacrifice, holy and pleasing to God--this is your true and proper worship.”
Multiple times in Leviticus 1-9 & 13, as the description on how to make a sacrifice to the Lord is given, it says, “Then the priest will burn the entire sacrifice on the altar as a burnt offering. It is a special gift, a pleasing aroma to the Lord.”
We are reminded that an offering made by “fire” is a special gift! It is a pleasing aroma to the Lord!
As we set our lives before the Lord as living sacrifices, let us hold fast to his promises and suffer well! Because, in doing so, we are pleasing to the Lord and we gain endurance, allowing us to share the HOPE that we have, most BOLDLY with those around us!
We will continue to pray with you all, for each other and for our world.
All our love,
The Strong Family
