Scotts July 2009 Update

“See, I have called by name Bezalel, and have filled him with the Spirit of God, with ability, intelligence and knowledge…..that they may make all that I have commanded you.”  Exodus 31:3,6

As we feel that time is drawing closer for us to go to Mexico, we are reminded of our need of God and His grace to fulfill His calling through us for His glory.  So, may we share some specific praise and prayer requests with you, which are on our hearts?

-Praise God for our supporters who have sacrificed much during these difficult economic times.

“Through eternity (we) shall thank God for the silent flame in the hearts of those and what they did for (us).  Not many of them has ever had their path opened into foreign work, but the light of the Day that is coming will show what He has let them do in kindling others.”  Lilias Trotter

 - Please praise God for our supporters who have given much and prayed much during the past 5 years.  We are thankful to God for each one of you who support us financially and through prayer.

-Praise God for His detailed provisions for us during these past 2 months.  Please praise Him for the loan of a car.  Our dear friend, Chaplain Don Malin is serving our country in Afghanistan and they have graciously given us his car to use.  Please pray for him and his wife Bess. 

-We are so thankful to our daughter Lindsey for allowing us to move right into her home.

-Praise God for our encouraging communication/visits with most of our supporters during these 2 months.

-Praise God for special times with our Children and Grandchildren.

-Praise God for using our son Chad to encourage us, counsel us, point out sin and listen to our hearts.

-Please pray for God to grant us ability, intelligence and knowledge to accomplish His ministry in Mexico.

-Please pray that doors will be opened and that hearts will be opened for the gospel.

-Please pray for God’s abundant grace during language school, and for us to learn the language quickly. We are planning on attending school in Guadalajara, Mexico in September.

-Please pray for a place to live in Guadalajara (a place that feels like home) and for quick transition to this country/city.

-We only need $352.55 per month to be able to depart for Mexico.  Please pray for God to raise up commitments for this amount through churches and individuals so that we can depart in September.

With many thanks and much love – Deborah and Steven
