Ann Seaney writes in her prayer letter about her experiences being back in the United States on homeland ministry assignment and what God has taught her. She also shares what Bolivia may have for her in the future as she finishes her time here.
“It was my first time in five years to be driving in a snowstorm. The snow was heavy and falling quickly. The interstate was snow packed and slick. My heart was thumping as I tried to keep my car on the road through limited visibility and at the same time not be intimidated by the vehicles that ‘flew’ by me, seemingly unconcerned with what I viewed as a dangerous situation. During that very long two-hour drive, I was comforted by the truth that God saw me. He knew right where I was! He knew what I needed, and He brought me safely to my destination. How thankful I am for answered prayer and for the truth that God’s eyes are always on me.
“These months of homeland ministry assignment have given me opportunities to see what God is doing in the lives of others. What a joy it was for me to visit with World Gospel Mission retiree Marilyn Van Kuiken, the person who introduced me to WGM. She continues to be a witness for Jesus in Crown Point, Indiana, where she now lives. I was blessed to hear of her continued eagerness for Bible study and her desire to live in a spirit of contentment. I’m so thankful God allowed our paths to cross many years ago and that He continues to keep His eyes on us where we are today. It is also a blessing to see what God is doing in local churches. It was a thrill for me to tag along with my cousin Nancy Deeter on a Wednesday evening to see firsthand the ministry she is involved in as the director of the nursery through the preschool program at First Baptist Church of Geneva. I was especially blessed to see the opportunities they provide for children with special needs. I’m so very thankful that God sees these little ones and is providing for their needs.
“Thank you for your prayers for me as I travel and have opportunity to share the cause God has given I am beginning to sense the urgency to return to Bolivia and take up the responsibilities in the treasurer’s office. It is good being with family and friends here, but I am needed to share the load of responsibility and ministry in Bolivia. I’m eager to see what opportunities God has for me to be involved in the church and community.
“Less than 100! That’s the number of days left until I will be applying for my visa to return to Bolivia. That’s not many days, and they will go quickly! Before those days are up, I need to have my support team confirmed. God has supplied the cash I need for the immediate expenses of returning to Bolivia, but I still need individuals who will commit to monthly support, which will cover the expenses for my two-year term in Bolivia. At this time, I lack $450 in monthly support. Would you be willing to partner with me by committing to give monthly? If 15 people will commit to give $30 a month, my goal will be met. Will you be one of the 15? You can donate online at www.wgm.org/seaney.
