October 2016 Sue Silva Update
“Trust me” says the Lord. “But Lord, how can I? Don't you know my uncertainties…the darkness that is present everywhere I go…the many seemingly insurmountable mountains?”
There have been some very difficult and uncertain times over the last six months. I was extremely sick for 6 weeks with malaria. The enemy really played havoc with my mind during that time. I also felt unsettled, thinking we would have moved to the village by now (which is my heart cry).
It was hard to start programs up, not knowing if I would be there a month later.
Praise the Lord! I can testify to the Lord's strength. As I lean on him and the Song he has become in my heart, I am more in love with him than ever. "The Lord is my strength and song and he has become my salvation. He is my God and I will praise Him; my father's God and I will exalt him” (Ex. 15:2). How good God is!
He blessed me, equipped me, and stretched me beyond what I thought I could handle. With his strength, direction and wisdom, I had many opportunities to be teaching pastors and the leadership of the church branches (this will continue once we move to the village). There have been amazing doors opening for evangelism and 1:1 mentoring and discipleship. Hearing people's testimonies and seeing their joy thrills me. God is so faithful tohis promises and his Word!
Francis and I continue in our relationship, growing deeper in love and ministry. We are waiting for God's timing to get married and will keep you posted.
Expectantly waiting on God,
