Week 3

I've been here in Nigeria for almost three weeks, and God is good. The days are full. There's much work to do and I've jumped right into it. Thanks for those of you who prayed for team unity because with 10 missionaries living in a three bedroom house those prayers are so valued and have been answered. Please keep praying for the church building as we are overgrowing the space rented. Yes, there has been spiritual attack and gnarly bugs and frustration with power on and off again, but there has been peace and joy and a love for the people here that I couldn't have anticipated.

I just wanted you to know how inspiring it is for me to see how the Lord is using your life. You are a woman so full of faith and trust in the Lord that it helps me in my walk. We will continue to pray for you.

Beth, I'm a friend of Marla McCall. She always lifts you up in prayer at our Woman's study. You've been on my heart to pray for as well as many other missionaries I know! You're doing the true work of the Gospel! Thank you for stepping out in faith to spread the Good news! Without seeing your blog I also introduced you to my 1st through 3rd graders on Sunday in the class I teach. We prayed for you and your safety. I just wanted you to know how your walk is encouraging me and the influence it is having on a group of kids back home in the US! Keep up the good fight and run this race with joy. Maybe one day we'll get to meet you! With all His love, a sister-in-Christ, Andrea Swierstra
