Current Prayer Requests (of a publicly-shareable nature):
[Last Updated: 11-11-2007]
- I'm beginning to teach an over-the-internet beginning class on biblical Hebrew.
You could pray that I'd prepare well & teach effectively.
It's pretty basic stuff, but of course requires that I "get on
top of it" -- i.e., get thoroughly familiar with the (canned) material
for each week. I have 2 classes on Sunday nights (7pm and 8pm);
there's another class Tuesday nights 8pm, but that is about the
only timeslot during the week that I cannot teach (due to a Bible study
that I am required to attend at my upcoming apartment building (I don't
move there until Dec. 1, however). Classes begin Sunday, November
- I feel like I'm advancing pretty well in German
spraching. But there again, I often ask myself why I really came
here. Sometimes, I'm not at all sure.
- The dollar has continued its fall ... pray for the
finances of all of the (US) missionaries you know -- esp. in Europe,
where the euro currency (the 'Ro) is very strong. It has fallen rather dramatically
over the last 3 years or so. That means that everything (from groceries
to rent to taxes) costs more. (I'm ok, as God continues to provide
abundantly for me. But I'm thinking more of all the US missionaries around the world, whose support base is eroding away underneath them.)
Thanks for your support!
