Surrender

Have you ever come to a place in your life where you felt out of control? In fact, the harder that you tried to “gain control” the more chaotic things became? Not to be too philosophical, but one of my biggest fears is the unknown. I think a large reason why is because I can’t control it or plan for it, and I don’t know what expectations to have.

Changes to Summer 2021 Projects

Come to Wales and bring the language and people alive for others.

As you know, we have been cautiously planning to move forward with having on-field summer projects for students this year here in Wales as well as in several other European countries. I am sure that you have seen several communications from us over these past few months in these newsletters and also in our monthly prayer calendars, regarding our plans for the summer. In spite of the latest lockdown measures and even up to just a couple of weeks or so ago, we were still planning to move forward, again cautiously, with our summer plans.

Give thanks and pray for new homes and coworkers

We have some positive developments, but also prayer requests related to a couple of new personnel to serve with us on the Team, currently in Wales. Thank you for praying for their transitions and settling. I would also ask you, please, to pray for all of us here during January as we are praying, evaluating, and seeking God’s direction and will for the work and focus of Linguæ Christi for the rest of 2021.
