July 4, 2020 - News & Prayers from Rev. Wokoma
HAPPY INDEPENDENCE DAY (4th of JULY)!
PRAYER FOR YOU MY BELOVED SUPPORTERS:
Oh Heavenly Father, You grant earthly governments for our good to prevent chaos, to promote good, and to hinder evil. Continue to bless the nation, U.S.A., and all my beloved supporters. Grant the citizens of the U.S.A. wisdom and integrity to be good citizens, especially during this time of COVID-19 pandemic and national turbulence.
I thank You for the gift of freedom which You have bestowed upon my beloved supporters and their loved ones. Preserve them in peace, and prosper them in all of their endeavors in life. Calm their anxious hearts and give them rest. Be their Light in the darkness, and Your never-ending peace in trouble. Give them the assurance that nothing can separate them from You, not even coronavirus, national turbulence, or business / work with all of its stressfulness. Refresh them so that others will see Your
good work in them and glorify Your Holy Name. Amen.
Continue to provide for them all that they will need to combat this virus and its economic implications. Keep them in the shadow of Your Wings at work, during business transactions, in all places, and at all times, through the same Jesus Christ, Your Son, who lives and reigns with You and the Holy Spirit, one God, now and forever. Amen!
Dearly Beloved Supporters,
Have a blessed and joyous Independence Day celebration / New Month of July, 2020 in Him, who is your Provider, your Refuge, your Shield, and your Great Physician. Amen!
Thank you all for your sacrificial financial support you have given to my missionary funding (NSM) during this economic downturn. It has touched me very much.
Now Interstate travel is being allowed here in this country, but curfew is still in place from 8:00 pm to 4:00 am in my state, some others begin at 10:00 pm..
Some of the students who have been locked down and remained in the dormitory for these past months have started traveling to their various homes. Some others are struggling with whether to stay or to go because the thirteen students who were staying at my house have remained. I think because they are enjoying their daily morning Table Talk with me these past three months, a sort of modified school program. Now more than ever we are working on The Apology of the Augsburg Confession. They like the more conversational setting this pandemic has created for us. So most of the dormitory students have decided to stay to enjoy the morning Table Talk of 3-6 hours, but some of the married ones, in particular, have left to see their families. Thank you so very much for all of your prayers, and financial support through the years, especially this period of COVID-19 pandemic. May the Triune God repay you, even forevermore. Amen!
• Continue to pray for the students who have stayed here and have not returned home.
• Pray for the three students who are trying to make arrangements for the funerals of their father, mother, and father-in-law respectively, which is even more difficult during these pandemic times.
• Continue to pray for me in my role here as LC-MS missionary.
Sincerely in Christ,
"The saying is trustworthy and deserving of full acceptance, that Christ Jesus came into the world to save sinners, of whom I am the foremost." 1 Timothy 1:15
