Fellow Hearty Boy! January 20, 2017
Here's the latest update from our group's prayer partners — Rob and Veronica Darby, who serve as the Lord's missionaries in Thailand and Sweden. Please read their update below and pray for their well-being. Be ready to be impressed by Rob's account of a startling God-action that he and Veronica experienced.
Thanks for your prayerful support of the Darby missionary family.
Please do not share this prayer list without first receiving the expressed permission of Rob or Veronica Darby. Thank you!
As we enter the new year, we look forward to getting lots of work done! January is usually a season of visitors and conferences, but right now things are fairly slow-paced. So we hope to accomplish much in the next few months. We're enjoying the cooler weather, although the rain is getting a bit tiresome and it keeps me (Rob) from keeping my swimming routine! I never thought I'd say this but, please pray for warmer weather. Ha!
Pray also that in the midst of getting lots of work done, that we will not forget to take time to be a family together. Our family is the one thing God has consistently used to bring blessing to so many people since we moved here four years ago.
Freedom 418 is rocking the city of CM through God's grace. It seems that miracle after miracle happens within that ministry. For example, if one person leaves the ministry, God provides someone else. And the team seems to really enjoy working together, which often isn't the case in many organizations or teams. Veronica said to me just the other day how it is hard to separate work from free time these days because her coworkers are also her good friends. That's a nice problem to have! Pray that God keeps blessing Freedom 418 and all that they set out to do.
I am one of the producers for a Syrian drama film that we'll create this summer when we visit Sweden. I'll fly out early to work on the film, then meet with V and the boys later on. We are trying to raise funds for the film ($25,000). I'm personally raising an extra $6,000–$7,000 to upgrade my camera and editing system. But I'm not writing to ask you to give. I only ask you to pray for God to provide the money to make it happen. And will you also pray for protection against so many obstacles that the enemy will surely throw in front of us to stop this auspicious project?
Bless you and have a great January wherever you find yourself!
Rob, for the Darby family . . . .
