Then they came to Jericho. As Jesus and his disciples, together with a large crowd, were leaving the city, a blind man, Bartimaeus (which means “son of Timaeus”), was sitting by the roadside begging. When he heard that it was Jesus of Nazareth, he began to shout, “Jesus, Son of David, have mercy on me!” Many rebuked him and told him to be quiet, but he shouted all the more, “Son of David, have mercy on me!” Jesus stopped and said, “Call him.” So they called to the blind man, “Cheer up! On your feet! He’s calling you.” Throwing his cloak aside, he jumped to his feet and came to Jesus. “What do you want me to do for you?” Jesus asked him. The blind man said, “Rabbi, I want to see.” “Go,” said Jesus, “your faith has healed you.” Immediately he received his sight and followed Jesus along the road.
We often reach out to God with vague prayers. We want him to meet every need in our life and so we ask him to protect our family, watch over our days, keep us healthy, etc. One thing this process has taught our family is that it is hard to see the power of God move when we are unclear in our prayers. As seen in Mark 10, Jesus wants to know, “What do you want me to do for you?”
By June 14, we are required to have $5,800 in monthly support and to date we have secured $5,050. We are currently praying over the specific amount needed for our family to be cleared and ask you to join us: Pray $750. Once we secure the additional monthly support, Africa Inland Mission can book our plane tickets to Kenya!
This process has been exciting and terrifying at the same time. Over the next week, we want to share about things that have helped us or had a major impact on our life. We’ll share our financial story, what we are leaving behind, and the battles we have faced. Thank you for the love and support you have shown our family. We couldn’t do this without you.
