2nd Peter 1:1-11 Devotional, & Brief Update on our Team

This morning in my personal devotions I was reading in 1st Peter & 2nd Peter. 2 Peter 1:1-11 really cut deep today and spoke to my Spirit. I posted this small revelation on Facebook of what God taught me through it. It all connects, and I love it. Hope it blesses you today:

We have all we need for life and godliness through his divine power… and are promised WE can participate in His DIVINE NATURE to escape worldly corruption. Which comes from? Evil desires. (2 Pet 1:3-4). Then, with your faith ALREADY in place firmly, add in INCREASING MEASURE goodness/knowledge/self-control/perseverance/godliness/brotherly kindness/love (2 Pet 1:5-8). Why? To be effective, productive, be sure of your calling, and to “NEVER FALL/STUMBLE”. (2 Pet 1:10).

Feel free to study that scripture and be blessed!

Abbreviated Update & Prayer Requests:

– Some friends from the states visited, and may potentially be working with Extreme. It was so great to see friends from Iowa!
– We had a fantastic Thanksgiving dinner, yes, even here in Peru with 40+ people
– Counselors that work with Extreme were here this week. Helped every one a lot.
– 1 member of the Cercado team has announced he will not be returning after Christmas break for health/stress reasons. Pray for Patrick, our friend!
– The last 2 weeks we had lots of sickness in our team, and the Cercado team. By God’s grace, I have still not been sick once here in Peru. Continue to pray for health!
– We still don’t have a new church building to move into in 3 weeks when our lease is up. Continue to pray!
– Brandon and I got to visit our neighbors daughter in the hospital to pray & encourage her. Turned into us laying hands on every patient in the room for healing and peace!
