Moore family update


Mark 10:27

     Jesus looked at them and said, "With man this is impossible, but not with God; all things are possible with God."
We are nearing the end of our official "learning language and culture" phase.  Although in reality we will never stop learning language and culture, we will no longer be able to commit to that in a classroom setting.  In a way, we have been very much in a preparation phase, and there is a great sense of anticipation as we survey the possibilities before us.  We are a bit like the Little Engine that Could, believing that we will accomplish the impossible.  Yes, we think we can, we think we can, we think we can...though not through any power nor planning of our own, but only through our complete dependence and trust in the One true God who loves to show His children that nothing is impossible with Him.

We have had so much fun at language school!  It is hard to believe that our time there is almost finished.  The school that teaches us Indonesian also teaches English to Indonesian children in the area.  From time to time, they organize fun outings for us all to interact...like this one at the beach!  We will also miss our interactions with our language teachers.  Many of them are not believers, though many seeds have been planted.  Please pray that the Lord will bless these teachers, and that the seeds planted there will flourish!
 Here it is...Our Team!  We recently assembled for a planning retreat, and took a moment to celebrate Waitangi Day (for our New Zealand members) and Groundhog Day.  As you can see, we are a varied group at different stages of life, and bring very different experiences and skill sets to the table.  As an answer to prayer, God has provided us with a national partner (not pictured)!  His vision for empowering workers here is amazingly similar to ours.  Please pray for us as we endeavor to find how the Lord would have us work together.  Right now, our difficulty seems to not lie in finding projects, but in being able to clearly discern which one(s) we should focus on.  (Please excuse Silas...he just was given an American blow-pop and didn't want to take it out for the photo!)




And now we must interrupt this time on the island to visit Georgia this summer!  Having been here two years, our visas will expire, and we will have to leave this country to get new ones.  What a wonderful opportunity to be able to reconnect with many of you face to face!  It will also give us opportunity to reflect on the Lord's work that is being done here, and how He would like us to move forward.  Looking forward to seeing you!
