Dear Family and Friends
Happy New Year!!! I wanted to say a quick hello as I am still on my sabbatical for one more month here in Marseille.
I pray that you had a wonderful time celebrating our Saviour’s birth with family and friends. My time here in Marseille has been filled with lots of forced rest so far. I’d really appreciate your prayers for my last month here. I say “forced rest” because in my second week here, I came down with shingles which caused severe pain on the upper left side of my body as well as a terrible rash. After a few weeks of rest and medications, the symptoms subsided in time for Christmas. I spent a lovely Christmas Eve with our Marseille church staff but unfortunately a few days later – one by one everyone tested positive for Covid. I thought that my myself and my pastor friend that I am staying with had escaped getting sick, but last weekend we also both tested positive. We have both been feeling rough this week but are slowly feeling better praise God.
Will you please pray that the rest of my time here is healthy? I really want to get everything out of this sabbatical that God wants me to. On Monday, our Every Nation Churches around the world will start a global week of fasting for this year and I’m expectant for what God has in store for me in this new season and excited about what He is going to do in this next week and the weeks to come.
Thank you so much for all of your prayers and continual support to reach the nations through Europe.
Loads of Love
