Romans 12:1 – “I beseech you therefore, brethren, by the mercies of God, that ye present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable unto God, which is your reasonable service.” Submitting oneself to the will of God is certainly reasonable, especially in light of His great salvation, mercy, and grace extended to us. What a wonderful privilege is ours to serve such a wonderful Saviour!
Laura and I didn’t get very far into the new year before coming down with COVID. We were “laid low” for up to three weeks and understand now what people mean by being hit really hard with it. While fatigue and a cough linger on, we are getting back to a normal routine. We were able to make some visits this past week.
My wife and I celebrate 20 years of marriage on February 22, Lord willing. We were so blessed to be able to attend the FBC Marriage Retreat this past week as our “big” celebration. We learned pointers on communication in marriage, as well as a lot of biblical wisdom from a seasoned pastor and wife. Investing in one’s marriage is always profitable. We want our marriage to be a good testimony for the Lord.
We have been asking the Lord for some divine appointments to witness for Him. A few days ago, Laura and I were going into a store. We were a little confused about where to go, and a Muslim lady came to help us, even getting a scooter for me. She was not an employee but saw we could use some assistance. She was very kind, gracious, and helpful. We sensed that this was the divine appointment God had brought our way. Laura told her what we had prayed and that we believed God had directed our paths together. We offered her a tract, but the lady said she was a devout Muslim and declined to take it. Laura asked her about Issa being their prophet and said the tract was about Issa. She then took the tract, and Laura and the lady began talking about their beliefs. Please pray for Sidra. She said she believes everything happens for a purpose as well, so perhaps that will prompt her to look at the tract a little more closely. We may never see her again this side of eternity, but we are thankful for the opportunity to tell her of the Saviour.
Please Pray for:
o More divine appointments and for Sidra’s salvation.
o Our preparations to return to Tasmania on May 1.
o Follow-up on those who have been saved or visited the church previously.
o More souls to be saved.
o Laura’s healing. The last PET scan wasn’t as good as the previous one, but the doctors aren’t too concerned at this point. Her chemo dosage has been upped as a result.
Thank you again for your support, especially in your prayers. They have made and continue to make the difference in helping us to continue in our march to victory.
In and through His great love,
Brother Andrew L. Steers
