Though you usually receive a prophetic word or inspiring teaching in your inbox— I like to send out an update twice a year as well. This is the first one in 2022.
My year has started out with more activity than I have seen in over two years. I serve on a local church senior leadership team, a national team and a global team which all keep me well rounded but quite busy.
Locally, here in Portland, Oregon, our team is in the midst of finding and purchasing a building. We have outgrown our current one and must be out of our current location in two weeks. With a very busy church schedule, this has added another big push to our calendar. But Jesus is worthy to receive His inheritance in Portland. We will work and continue to partner with our King to see “In Portland as it is in Heaven” come to pass. Pray for our team to have favor, wisdom and grace as we proceed.
I am also headed for the Middle East in less than a month. There are many detail to still get done before this strategic trip— I will be traveling at a time where there is much unrest in the world. I deeply appreciate your prayers for strength and protection as I go. I will give more details after I return home in mid-April.
Lastly, my husband, Jeffrey, was diagnosed with prostate cancer this past week. It is in the intermediate stages and will require immediate attention and treatment. We are meeting with his doctors this week to discuss treatments and possibly surgery. With all that is on our plate this news requires us to put first things first— and his recovery comes first. Jeffrey owns a publishing company called Inscribe Press and he is in contract with numerous authors with strict deadlines. He also is serving on the senior leadership team of our local church. He will most likely have to take some time off to have treatments and to recover if surgery is required. Please pray for his healing, for grace and for peace. We both have been kept in perfect peace since hearing the news.
Thank you for standing with us. With the upcoming trip to the Middle East and Jeffrey’s medical treatments, we would like to invite you to partner with us in prayer during the next few months.
