I sure am glad that God is greater than anything I can feel or experience. 1 John 3:20 states, “For if our heart condemn us, God is greater than our heart, and knoweth all things.” We must know that God is in control, that He knows all things, and that He can give us the victory in any situation. He can give us the confident heart (1 Jn. 3:21) with which to carry on.
Thank you for your prayers for a safe birth for both mom and baby. Everyone is doing well. Please pray for strength for Sara and that Melody would continue to grow strong and healthy.
Michelle, the young lady from our church mentioned in our previous letter, was able to travel to Lima for further treatment on the cyst in her mouth. Some progress was made, but due to lab negligence, she did not find out a final diagnosis. She will have to travel to Lima again in October to continue her treatment. We have been praying for the salvation of her family. Several weeks ago, her mom had an accident and suffered a severe fracture of her lower leg. She is in the hospital awaiting surgery, and will have a long recovery. Please pray for Michelle and her mom, Rosa, in these health situations they are facing.
Brother Lorenzo’s Home-going
A little more than 2 years ago, I had the privilege of being present as a 70-year old man (the husband of one of our faithful church ladies) trusted Christ as his Savior. During the past year and a half, I have had the privilege of discipling Lorenzo as his health permitted. This past week, he went home to Heaven after a short battle with pneumonia. Praise the Lord that the Gospel reached him in time! Please pray for his family, his wife Marcela, and for his children, many of whom still do not know the Lord.
The Lord blessed my trip to Iquique, Chile, during the month of April. I had great liberty while preaching and a wonderful time of fellowship with missionaries Curtis and Debra Couch and the people of their church. Please pray that the Lord would raise up more laborers to reach the country of Chile with the Gospel!
Thank you for all you do to help us do the work that the Lord has called us to do. We could not do what we do without your prayers and financial support.
Robert and Sara Stover and family
