"Count it all joy, my brethren, when ye fall into manifold temptations; Knowing that the proving of your faith worketh patience. And let patience have its perfect work, that ye may be perfect and entire, lacking in nothing." - James 1:1-4
We hope that you all had a wonderful Christmas celebration with the One we celebrate and with your loved ones.
The word that best describes our season in life and ministry right now is patience. Patience seems an outdated word, one that does not fit our culture any longer. Just think of all the tasks the artificial intelligence is capable of performing in matter of seconds and your head starts spinning.
However, we as Christians, have a different perspective on things. The apostle James teaches us that patience is a school in itself and is an essential by-product of true faith. Patience humbles us and shows us that we are not the ones in control. It makes us dependent on God’s grace. Patience makes us whole and complete in all aspects of our lives so we lack in nothing.
Saved from abortion
For our Christmas celebration at Puls this year, our clients suggested we invited a young singer to come and sing some carols to us. To our surprise they mentioned a name that was familiar to us, but not as a singer, rather as a baby. Ioana was the first baby that was saved from abortion when Puls opened its doors in 2005. It was a joy to meet the beautiful young lady Ioana has become. She came with her mother and her ten months old brother. Seeing her reminded us of the great potential each life holds.
An unexpected hold up
The sonogram machine is still in the States waiting to be shipped over. We have received parts of it - two sets of probes and a printer - and some of the manuals. Unfortunately, the gentleman who is in charge of the process got very sick and has not been able to take care of the shipping. He has had two heart attacks this year and is currently scheduled for eye surgery. Pray for his health. We believe God is in control and knows what He is doing, even though we would have wanted things to happen quicker.
