One of the highlights of Charlotte and my week was signing the lease for our new apartment. Since then we have been busy packing and preparing to move.
Another highlight was sharing a meal with Matt and Laurie at Tonalli yesterday. How encouraging to hear their story of how God specifically called them back to New York City. The first time they visited our community was the worship and prayer night last month. That night confirmed in their hearts that they wanted to part of what God is doing in the Heights.
We had a significant worship and prayer night Wednesday. As 36 of us, including seven children crowded into one apartment, two things became clear: the need to begin researching a place where we can meet as the community grows and the need to provide ministry and care for our children. Let’s make this a focus of our prayers.
For this reason, since the day we heard about you, we have not stopped praying for you. We continually ask God to fill you with the knowledge of his will through all the wisdom and understanding that the Spirit gives, so that you may live a life worthy of the Lord and please him in every way: bearing fruit in every good work, growing in the knowledge of God, being strengthened with all power according to his glorious might so that you may have great endurance and patience, and giving joyful thanks to the Father, who has qualified you to share in the inheritance of his holy people in the kingdom of light. For he has rescued us from the dominion of darkness and brought us into the kingdom of the Son he loves, in whom we have redemption, the forgiveness of sins. (Colossians 1:9-14, NIV)
