Good morning, Lord. Thank you for another day in paradise with you. I had such a busy day yesterday. It was my first day working in a business teaching English. I left in the morning and didn´t get back until almost midnight. Right now it´s two times a week but later it will be more. Thank you, Lord, for more work. We need the money but we also need time for the ministry and writing. Sometimes I find it difficult to know whether to take risks for ministry or stay conservative and support my family. Finding that balance is hard, Lord. I want to please you and you ask me to do both. So there must be a way to do both and I simply have to find it and be patient in the meantime. Thank you for your wisdom, Lord.
Today, I will have another meeting with Fernando via SKYPE. I pray that you would help us to finish all the details that are needed before we launch the campaign on Monday. Lord, I just saw the Book Trailer that petra did for me and I think it´s wonderful. Thank you for her and her creativity. Lord, she did a great job with the Ministry Video as well, although it mostly was done by Vero´s friend. Still she put the final product together. Lord, I pray that you would use these tools to inspire people to read the book and to come into a closer relationship with you as a result. You are the only one who can change the human heart but you have decided to make us an integral part of getting the word out. Lord, you took a risk on us. Whether or not we would be living examples of what we preach and, even, whether we would bother to tell people about you at all. I suppose that you would rather have a few good promoters than a lot of half-hearted ones. If the message of your grace hasn´t changed us, then our message is weak and ineffectual. Lord, teach us relational evangelism, distinctive apologetics and radical discipleship. We want to please you. I belong to you and you belong to me. In your name, I pray. Amen.
