Answers to Prayer
I realize that our last update was sent in November. We want to thank you for your continued prayers for our family while we’re on our home assignment. Many have asked about Daniel and his vision therapy. Daniel’s vision therapy has been going very well and he is making notable progress. I believe he only has about 9 sessions left to complete. I know he’ll be glad to have that behind him. Thank you for praying for Daniel in this way.
Another prayer request we have shared is in regards to the housing situation for Michael as he will be attending our mission’s boarding school at our field headquarters in Papua New Guinea. God has answered that prayer through the provision of dorm parents for this coming school year. Michael will be staying at the dorm for 8-week terms and then, at the completion of each term, he will have a time with us before starting the next term. We are thankful that the school year is broken up in this way so that we can have time together throughout the year.
A current prayer request is that we are starting to look for plane tickets for our return to PNG this coming June. Please be praying with us that God will provide reasonable fares for our family to get back and for the provision of the finances for those tickets.
A Time to Rest
Last week we were blessed beyond measure by Quiet Place Ministries, who provided our family with a 5-day retreat over the kids’ mid-winter school break. This was a great time of spiritual and emotional refreshment and it provided a great time to rest and re-connect as a family. This has been the first time on our home assignment that we have not had to share our room with our 4-year old. It was wonderful to have time just for our family and to be able to spend some one-on-one time with each one of the kids throughout the 5 days.
Quiet Place Ministries purpose is to “provide retreats for individuals, married couples, and families serving in Christian ministry. At no charge, pastors, missionaries, and others can enjoy a time of renewal, relaxation, and refreshment.” They are a very small organization which provide for those in full-time ministry in a BIG way! We would encourage you to reach out to QPM to see how you might be able to help provide refreshment for those who are serving in full-time ministry.
Long Journey Ahead
We will be leaving tomorrow, Friday, Feb 14, to head to New York, via Canada, to speak at one of our supporting churches. From there we’ll drop down to Pennsylvania for 5 days connecting with some of our supporting pastors at a Church Leader’s Retreat at Ethnos360’s Wayumi campus. This will be an awesome time for these pastors to gain a deeper understanding of what their church is a part of through their partnership with us (and other Ethnos360 missionaries).
This is going to one of our longer journeys in a time of the year when the weather can be quite unpredictable. Please pray for safety in travel over the next week.
Thank you for your continued prayers and support. We appreciate each one of you!
Your co-workers in Christ,
Levi & Robyn Lenz
Michael, Daniel, Matthew, & Krystiana
