The team is exhausted.
Grace almost scratched the church van while heading out to get supplies.
Rosie tripped over a luggage strap and landed on her knees and hands. Thank You that there was no permanent damage.
Clement had a profusely bleeding nose twice today, the second time lasting for almost 5 minutes. He dripped bright blood all over the sink.
One heartstopping moment- my luggage was missing from the back of the express train, just as we had one minute to exit the train. My first wild thought: Chelsia’s food stuff is in my luggage and they are now all gone! With my heart thumping like a rabbit, I walked down the length of the cabin, just in case someone mistakened it for theirs. It was in the middle of the train cabin, with the boxes of bengawan solo cake that were tied to it scattered on the floor, cake bags torn. Pandan chiffon cake we brought up for pastor Kondo’s wife.
Everything else was intact. Thank You God for answering prayer so immediately.
Thank You for sending two Texan missionary-students here too. Addison bought Clement something for his bleeding nose, bless him for his kindness. He had to eat ice cream for dinner after that because he had no more funds. Give us an opportunity to bless him too.
Thank You for providing a good sushi meal for my brother. It was his first encounter with uni and I’m so glad we got it at a fraction of the price.
We ask for Your grace for tomorrow’s plans. We set off at 7am latest for the first public housing.
1. I ask for Your protection against the evil one’s schemes when we travel. May fatigue never win the day. May we persevere in joyfully serving despite tiredness.
2. I ask that Your favour rest upon us and establish the work of our hands.
