I feel deeply grateful that some of you said you might pray for me. That is so kind of you, it touches my heart a little. My only prayer request for now is as follows:
Last summer Eric Soard said he met with a long-time missionary for advice on how to persevere in long-term service in Tanzania. The long-time missionary responded, “You have to stay in love with the people.”
I am not yet engaged in long-term service, but this seems to be what I need as well. Could you pray that God’s love would become more real to me? It seems that if God’s love is more real to me, I will have more love to give, and therefore, I will be able to stay in love with the people I am serving.
