Streams in the Desert, Arrivals and Departures

About time!  I had great intentions of posting to our blog last week but God had other plans for me, obviously.  Its difficult to post every single week but I do try to do it faithfully as I can.

We will start off this week's post with our message from Pastor Jussi.  His message had a theme of being in the wilderness or desert and also on baptism of the Holy Spirit.  I have prefaced and ended his word with an audio introduction and would appreciate your feedback!

We wish Nathan and Leila a safe and sound trip as they leave on their two month sojourn to China where Nathan will be fulfilling his teaching practicum and Leila will... be doing whatever the Lord leads her to do!  What a wonderful opportunity for our brother and sister.  Please keep them in your prayers and I will keep you all updated to their progress should I recieve emails!
We welcome Dale and Florence home as they return from their "snowbird" travels down south.  They have been used powerfully of God through their RV ministry and have seen much fruit!  I believe Florence has indicated we may see some content here about their work in the fields. 
Dallas - as he continues to heal from secondary infection as a result of radiation treatments for cancer.
Johnson Family - as their father (Dallas) heals that they would be able to cope and their business would be looked after during this difficult time.
Nathan and Leila - as they travel to China.

I'll leave you with the following thoughts:

Let us search and try our ways,
And turn again to the Lord.
Let us life up our hearts with our hands unto God in the heavens.
Lamentations 3:40-41

Grow old along with me!
The best is yet to be,
The last or life,
for which the first was made:
Our times are in His hand.
Robert Browning

Be ready always to give an answer to every man that asketh you a reason for the hope that is in you.
1 Peter 3:15
