“Be alert and of sober mind. Your enemy the devil prowls around like a roaring lion looking for someone to devour. Resist him, standing firm in the faith, because you know that the family of believers throughout the world is undergoing the same kind of sufferings. And the God of all grace, who called you to his eternal glory in Christ, after you have suffered a little while, will himself restore you and make you strong, firm and steadfast.” 1st Peter 5:8-14
8,000 miles may seem like a long distance, and it is! But thanks to modern inventions, our team was able to communicate and pray together with 8,000 miles between us. Were were lead by our community and church relations manager Emily who spoke over 1st Peter 5:8-14.
Emily said, “It challenges me in a particular way because we view suffering as something that happens to us”. Peter distinctly says, “you need faith to fight the enemy and to constantly mature your faith.”
How do we apply this in our lives?
- Remember that there is a spiritual war and we are exposed to it so let’s continue standing firm.
- Our faith is not only individualistic as it can thrive in community.
- Spiritual warfare can bring anxiety, but we need to remember that demons have no power over us as believers.”
- Pray that the hygiene kits will be effective in pointing to the one true God!
- Blessings over our US Partners – as they help us empower internationals in their communities!
- Pray for summer teams as they are returning and beginning to debrief.
- Water is causing extreme draught in some areas, and flooding in others, creating unstable farming environments and economic stress. Pray that God would meet physical needs for the people of India.
- Sites for the 5k
- Multiple water projects are underway in India!
- Interns will soon begin their semester with GHI!
- We received 5,000 hygiene kits from Elevation Church this past Sunday
- The City project is thriving! Pray for safety as they return home this week.
