A little gathering time at IFM

 We gather here in Jesus name........the IFM staff from the D.R. and Haiti enjoyed a brunch and a
time of singing and fellowship together last Saturday.
The guys fixed most of the food~it was delicious!

Laurie brought over some beautiful zinnias for us to enjoy!

Mike and Joannas family in the back, Dale on right
and Matt with his boys from the Childrens Home.

Here is Kikko`s sweet family

There was quite a number of us here!

Truly it is a blessing to have a wonderful group of believers all directed towards one common goal.
To see others come to Christ and for Him alone to recieve all the glory.

We as staff, want to thank each one of you for your prayers and support in our behalf.
God is the giver of all good and we praise Him for it.

Rest in the Lord...

Rest in the Lord, and wait patiently for him: fret not thyself… Psalm 37:7a

It is hard to believe that one year has passed since I started working with IFM.
I have learned so many things in the past year I would need a ream of paper to print the dialog.

As I sat down to type this letter my heart was flooded with pleasant and sad emotions.
I do not understand why God would call me away from a ministry that I love and want to be part of.

It is very possible that in my life time I will never know the answers to these big “why” questions but in this one thing I rest assured.
I know who (Jesus) holds my life in the palm of his hand, and I know he is working things out according to His perfect plan for my life.

Commit the way unto the Lord; trust also in him; and he will bring it to pass. Psalm 37:5
May 2012 will be my last month with IFM.
I plan to work a part time job in Pennsylvanian this summer and do a bit of traveling, after that I have no definite plans.

To all of the IFM staff, it was great learning to know you guys; I will really miss working with you. Keep on pointing the people around you to Jesus Christ.

Please pray that God will continue to open doors of ministry in my life and that he would provide somebody to replace me in the USA office.
