Grace to you, and peace from God our Father, and the Lord Jesus Christ!
How come I feel so comfortable reading that from Paul, but so awkward writing it to you? One friend said, not too long ago, that we should be prefacing our letters with Gospel tones. To be honest, it sounds so "other-world-like." However, be that as it may, I really WANT you to enjoy God's grace and peace! Personally speaking, I NEED it every day!!
Please continue to pray for us as we move ahead on our plans for the future. Balancing priorities, learning new skills, adjusting schedules, and keeping up with activities can seem daunting at times. THAT'S why I so need to remember "grace" and "peace," not just theoretically, but in the everyday stuff of life.
That's right, just one. Please pray for us as we (World Team in Spain) move along the path towards planning for the future. We are excited about all that this offers, and are thrilled to sense God's hand moving us in this direction. Pray for clarity, for wisdom, and for focus. Like so often, just as we begin on this HUGE priority, many urgent things call for our attention.
Thanks for praying. We're counting on your prayers.
P.S. We're hosting a prayer conference in Spain (2006). See www.gintersinspain.org (2nd Annual Prayer Conference) for more info!
