Updates from Nepal

Our church sent a team out to Nepal this Tuesday - how incredibly exciting for them and for us! For updates see Jeremy's blog.

There is something awe-inspiring about new adventures. The difficult part is that these exploits usually involve change and the unknown. Those who lead others into such undertakings must be bold and daring. I am thrilled to see Jeremy Moore, the leader of our team, taking his leap - "I'm in totally uncharted waters, with only God's quiet direction and my family and friend's loyal and devoted support to help me. I remember praying a small prayer like 'whatever you want God, I am willing....'
I kind of feel like a bird who finally took that leap of faith and got some wind under my flapping wings. I can't wait to see where this ride takes us."

God will most surely hold him and bring him to his destination. What wondrous things He has for those who walk in faith!

Faith is absolutely necessary to a victorious Christian walk. We cannot please God without it. We also cannot defeat the enemy without it.
Ephesians 6.16 "...above all, taking the shield of faith with which you will be able to quench all the fiery darts of the wicked one."

If we fail to walk in faith towards the enemy, his assaults will continue without pause. He will rob our joy, peace, righteousness - our victory in this life. We will have an Eeyore spirit - you know - the "woe is me" blues. Everything is overwhelming. Everything is always wrong for us.

But with eyes of faith, we see and understand that anything that comes our way will become good for us. We believe God's ability to turn every fiery dart around and pierce the enemy's plan in our lives. We live protected, shielded lives. And even better - our enemy suffers defeat!

Oh, to live by faith! To bring glory to Him by proclaiming to the powers of darkness that He indeed reigns! To declare to the world looking on that He is for us - that His love never fails - that through Him we can do wondrous deeds that mankind alone can never accomplish!

Fly, Jeremy - fly on wings of faith! And may your adventures in Him bring defeat to the enemy and glory to the one true God!
