Asking for your prayers

Dear Global family,

Susie and I are so thankful for each of you and your commitment to serve Him all over the world.  We want to encourage you to continue to keep your eyes fixed on the Lord as you trust Him to move mightily in your midst.  Our hope continues to be that in 2 years, we will see multiple movements in at least 30 countries through the work of AIA.  May God use us as His instruments so that everyone would know Him as Savior and Lord. 

We wanted to update you on a personal matter the Lord has us going through.  Last week, an MRI revealed that Susie has a brain tumor.  The last few days, God has allowed us to rest and trust in Him in ways we never had to before.  Susie and me are truly trusting the Lord as we walk through this.  We praise Him that He is God and we are not.  We praise Him that He is control and we are not.  We praise Him for his love and His mercy. 

We ask that you, your families, disciples, volunteers and all in your network would lift up Susie in prayer.  We are waiting on a surgery date.  Please also pray for the baby that is in Susie’s womb – she is currently 14 weeks pregnant. 

Finally, through this all, we pray that God’s name would be glorified all over the world.  That many would come to know Him and trust Him in deeper ways. 

We love each of you.  Thanks for your commitment to the Lord.  It’s a joy to serve the global family of AIA. 

Ben & Susie
