I would like to ask for prayer. I and my wife has been without our home for 2 weeks (going on 3) now.
After coming back from a conference a month ago, we both got sick as soon as we entered our home and remained sick for about a week thereafter. We thought it was just down to the fact that we slept at an airport the previous night and our bodies were a little weak and vulnerable.
However, thereafter I started getting severe allergic reactions inside our home starting about two weeks ago. After initially thinking we have bugs, to other possibilities, after prayer the Father revealed that we have mold in our venting system (HVAC) of the home. We were soon thereafter forced out of the home for our own health and we are now living with my in-laws until the home is cleaned.
As you can imagine, this is impacting my work in the ministry. So I may not be able to deliver all the teachings I wanted to deliver this week as well as next week, I apologize. I am working from where I am as much as possible, but I’m away from my workspace and computer to render videos and my laptop cannot handle it as well.
We don’t always know why these things happen, but we had a mold inspector at our house the rental management company had sent, who I had to let into the house to inspect it. He ended up seeing the home studio where we shoot Rise on Fire videos and asked about it. I had an opportunity to witness to him, and upon leaving he even asked the ministry name so he can look-up the teachings. If by all this God knew that this would be the only way to reach this mold inspector, then it’s all worth it. Just 2 weeks ago He turned our plane around mid-flight to let us bump into a waitress whom I had to meet, and it ended up restoring her faith in God – all glory to God!
So in all this, rejoice in your suffering, for you may not know what it’s end and fruit may be to your own life, or even the lives of those around you.
Rom 5:3 Not only that, but we rejoice in our sufferings, knowing that suffering produces endurance, and endurance produces character, and character produces hope, and hope does not put us to shame, because God’s love has been poured into our hearts through the Holy Spirit who has been given to us.
Please pray for our house to be cleaned up soon. It has been a slow process with our home management company and we hope to be moving back in soon so we can continue with the work He has prepared for us.
