April 2012 News

I caught myself daydreaming today. Suddenly I was just thinking about the beauty and hope that comes with spring. I found I was smiling and almost chuckling at the thought of simply being outdoors. Quickly my thoughts turned to the majesty of the Lord. He spoke all of this beauty into being. He certainly is a big dreamer. What dreams are in your heart? What new level of hope does the Lord want to bring to pass in this season over your life? When was the last time you allowed yourself time to simply dream? I encourage you to take some time to just be with the Lord and let Him overwhelm your thoughts, desires, and dreams. The Lord has placed big dreams in our hearts for Streams of Water and Rescue a Child ministries. They are truly bigger than we are. We value and appreciate your prayer covering as we seek the Father’s wisdom and direction concerning those mighty dreams. We must dream big because we have the DNA of the Lord. We serve a big God!

Every time I think about the children in the orphanage I am amazed at how the Lord is showing these precious children that they can dream again. Have you ever watched a time release camera as it captures a beautiful flower as it gracefully unfolds from a bud to a full blown blossom? That is what watching the children in the orphanage is like. It is beautiful. It is magical. It is totally the Lord. The kids are expressing a desire to form a worship band. How wonderful is that? So we do have a need for all kinds of music equipment. We have some very simple speakers and a small mixer. We could really use some microphones, tambourines, guitars, drums or anything else along this line that these aspiring musicians can learn to play. If you would like to partner with us in this endeavor, please just let us know. We praise God for how He is transforming these young lives. We believe He will use them to impact the world around them for His kingdom in a mighty way.

We would like to give a big thank you shout out to two of our partners who have donated a suburban and a pickup for the work in Mexico. Thank you for your generosity. Thank you for listening to the Lord. These vehicles will be used to spread the love and kindness of the Lord.

One other update we would like to share is about the upcoming May mission trip. The trip is sponsored by Arena Church in Canyon. This is one of our partner churches. It is scheduled for May 4th – 7th. We would appreciate your prayers as plans are being made for this adventure. We want the Lord to be glorified and lives to be changed as a result. We are asking for divine encounters where people experience the majesty of the living God. Please pray for provision and safety for everyone involved. We are praying for each person the Lord will be sending on this trip.
