Holding the Ladder

Thursday, October 11

The following powerful story is from a choice couple serving in a difficult part of North Africa. I cannot list their names but beg you to pray for them and their sweet children.

Dear Friends and Family,

Thank you for being such an encouragement to us.

I was watching a man across the street painting a house.  He had 2 ladders tied together.  He was trying his best to reach the top but every time he stretched the ladder wiggled and wobbled.  I thought he was going to surely fall.

Fortunately, another man showed up and helped hold the ladder steady at the bottom. The man tried again and stretched this time the ladder did not wobble.

But when another man showed up in addition to the first to hold the ladder steady, this gave the man confidence to climb up one more rung in order to reach that previously “unreachable” spot on the wall.

The word says, Two are better than one…and a cord of three strands is not easily broken”…Thank you for supporting us, working along side us…we know He has all authority and promises to never leave nor forsake us.

When you pr ay and lift up and support the work, it’s like we gain confidence and courage… to climb one more rung, reach one more previously “unreachable” soul with the Good news.

TAKE NOTE HOW OUR BROTHERS/SISTERS IN CLOSED COUNTRIES MUST CHOOSE THEIR WORDS CAREFULLY AS IN “THE WORD” AND “PR AY.”
