Dear Fellow Workers For the Truth,
I write from a train out of Hungary, leaving my team of workers there and on my way to meet the workers you are sending to the harvest fields of Kosovo.
While in Hungary, more than once, mention was made of the glory God revealed in the sunflower, always turning to face the sun. Further, our high school physics teacher/musician/chapel speaker,Tim Patterson was ready with a fascinating description of God’s design in how the flower grows while facing the sun. We just had to take pictures!
Wheat fields are being harvested as we travel thru the countryside delivering the Gospel in confidence that souls will be harvested. In order to take advantage of a photo opportunity in a sunflower field on our way to our open air evangelism event, on the last night of camp, I attempted to drive our van across a summer fallow field. Big mistake!, the field was soft, 50 yards into the field the van bogged down, we lost our momentum, and the wheels started to spin. Everybody piled out to push me to solid ground, and then the picture taking. It was a good reminder to me: stick to solid ground, keep your momentum, don’t spin your wheels and get stuck…ask others to give you a push.
Oh, that we would ask Christ to give us a push. Oh, that we would face the Son and grow like the sunflower! Oh, that we would be bold proclaimers of the Gospel and bring in His harvest.
Thank you for your prayers. Thank you for sending us. Thank you for the push your prayer and financial support provided. Thanks be to the Son who makes us grow!
