Remember how I kept blabbering about continuing my 'Skyline Path', how I would be need greating again as soon as I had the funds and ability? WELL LISTEN UP, PEEPS. Today, Zech and I just bought our tickets for Bologna, Italy! From January 17th to April 17th of 2012 (3 months), we will be serving in a high need English congregation, and 2 more brothers will be going with us! A total of 4 (perhaps 5) brothers will be joining together to face the field of greater need! WOO HOO!
Those words still stand true for my heart and soul. We face difficult times whether we reach out or not, and sometimes reaching out in further ways adds to such trepidation and fear. Jehovah, however, adds a full reward, many times in ways we cannot expect. Remember that we studied recently about when Peter was released from Herod's prison? The brothers and sisters were praying fervently for him, and Jehovah answered them with a blessing that proved "patted down and shaken", many times beyond what they had expected.
In many ways, I feel as though Jehovah has continually helped me. Did I deserve such help? Probably not. Did I appreciate it? Probably not enough. Am I humbled by it? Certainly.
Thanks be to Jehovah our God who so lovingly supplies us with the courage and strength needed.
I'll be updating the blog the whole time, so fear not avid readers! I shall not abandon you! Adventure awaits, experiences to test our faith await, and times that will be firmly placed in our memory banks will be had! We live in such a monumental time, don't we? It is one that will never be repeated. Think about what a PRIVILEGE we have! Through the literally countless years to come, we will be of a unique group that can tell our story of what it was like to live in the time of the end, to how Jehovah's name was cleared of reproach, and of how we saw Jehovah's purpose finally brought to full fruition as the earth was transformed back into an unimaginable paradise. What an exciting slice of Jehovah's master timeline we've been given!
One last thing.
That is all.
