The POD with our belongings arrived at our new rental townhouse on December 9th and we have been hard at work to settle-in to our new surroundings, despite complications and both of us getting hit hard with the flu! We both begin our new work schedules with Mission ONE on Tuesday!
As we say “goodbye” to 2017, we want to do more than just make a “wish” for your coming year to be “HAPPY”. We will close the year today, Dec. 31st, praying for each of you reading this, you who have impacted our lives, whether new relationships, or those with rich personal history, and even those we haven’t yet met but who have connected with us through social media. And particularly – for those of you who have become a part of our team, financially contributing toward our support. These two Sarasota natives are so thankful that you have chosen to give to the Kingdom – through us – and we can confidently say that your contributions will keep-on giving to further the saving work of the Gospel of Jesus in people’s lives in many regions of Africa, the Middle East and Asia. What an amazing thought… that we can truly make an eternal impact so far away through our prayers and giving and efforts on this side of the globe.
So, instead of just wishing you well… we will pray Scripture over you:
We ask for God’s blessing on you and your families, and on all your work, and in everything you undertake that is pleasing to the Lord.
We pray for a hunger and thirst to know Christ more and for His Word.
We pray for sensitivity and obedience to the Holy Spirit.
We pray for fruitfulness and that you would be the fragrance of Christ to those around you.
We pray the God of hope will fill you with all joy and peace as you trust in Him, so that you may overflow with hope and gratitude and grace by the power of the Holy Spirit. We ask God to give you wisdom, a love for the things of God and a hatred of all that displeases Him.
We pray that in all you are facing in your life that you will be strengthened by His Spirit so that you may have great endurance and patience, and may joyfully give thanks to the Father.
We pray that you will not be anxious about the things in this life, but that you will choose wisely what you allow your mind to think-on, and that the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.
We would desire the same prayers on our behalf, so that we may all be equipped for whatever 2018 may bring our way. May we all be good stewards of our gifts and resources and finances and time; and may we all be joyful in hope, patient in affliction, faithful in prayer, and worthy ambassadors for the name of Jesus.
That ALL may know Him,
Bill and Patricia Kics
