The Lord has been at work these past few months and several prayers have been answered! Let us take a moment and share with you some of the blessings we have watched God provide.
We are praising the Lord for providing a way to get my truck repaired and back on the road! This has been a great blessing, especially since I am still using it to travel back and forth to church everyday.
The Lord has also supplied the funds for us to take the medical missions class in October and November. We are very excited about this opportunity! Especially after seeing how much medical missions opened doors into many different villages while my wife and I were in Bolivia last year. There are not normally doctors or any other medically trained people in a lot of the remote villages, so this training will really open doors for villages to
allow us in. The saying is true; people don't care what you know, until they know that you care. There are still a few prerequisites we need to achieve before we can go but everything is coming together well.
Our trip in September is starting to come together. There are currently 6 people planning to go but it’s not too late for you to join our group because we have not purchased tickets yet. We plan to take a trip the first week in September to help work on a new church building in El Alto and also to start taking some of our stuff down. We recently found out that the airline is only allowing one bag now instead of two and in order for us to take two, we have to pay extra for it and they do not allow more than two. So please help us pray about that as we get ready to move our stuff. And if anyone is interested in going in September please let us know soon.
Although our bookings have slowed down a bit lately, our support is still coming in. Pray for us that doors will open as we continue on deputation. We are very thankful for the 30% that has already come in! We are praising the Lord for this! In the amount of time we have been raising support; we believe this amount to be very good. We know it is all in God's timing but we are praying it continues to come in quickly. We still have the goal of the first quarter of next year.
Also, continue to help us pray as we continue raising money to buy a vehicle in Bolivia once we get there next year. The Lord has done so much already and we know He can, and will provide all our needs according to His riches in glory!
Your Missionaries to Bolivia,
Robert and Jessica Murray
