Greetings from the East Coast!

Friends and Family I am so excited to have you partnering with me and my people (of South Asia) in knee bending. This is the first of many updates you will be receiving over the next two years as I live in South Asia. If by some chance you have received this e-mail and do not wish to get updates please let me know it will be no problem to remove a name.

I know it has been a while since I have had a chance to visit with some of you and I am sorry for that. I hope these e-mails will feel like we are sitting across from one another sharing about what our lives have been like and what’s been going on. I have spent the last three weeks on the East Coast at training for my job. I have been taking classes in ESL (English as a Second Language) and classes on being prepared for the task. There have been some amazing sessions about what to expect while living overseas, relationship building advise and some very sweet friendships have started. I know these next 6 weeks will fly by but there’s a lot of ground to be covered in there. Please be kneeling that I would be well rested and alert while in classes, that I would retain all the information needed and would take advantage of every learning opportunity. My family has been good with this direction I am following but please be lifting them up in this time also. It’s not always easy and there are still some rough patches with where I’m going and how they’re doing with it.
Some other things to be seeking Dad about are the people group I will be working with that their heart would be prepared for Truth. Dad has been in that country long before any of us even existed and he will be there long after us but please be kneeling for South Asia. Please be kneeling for the fellow national brothers and sisters living there under persecution that they would find the strength through the Pneuma to stand; also please kneel for fellow brothers and sisters from the states that are over there that they would be lead by Pneuma everyday in their various jobs of service to Dad.

Thank you and bless you all.
Love, Sarah

Here are some notes from my brain:
Verses: Mark 1.18, Psalm 143. They’ve been really encouraging and humbling in this time of preparation.
Songs: “Awaken” by Natalie Grant and “From The Inside Out” by HIllsong United

Hey P. Tom, thank you so much. It was a joy to get a chance to talk at Grace. I would love your e-mail to send knee bending letter to.

Sarah said...

Kaylyn! Thank you so much! It was a safe trip back. It got a little sketchy looking in Flagstaff but it went well. I hope you had a great Christmas with Aunt Ruthie. Do you have an e-mail I can reach you and your family at?
