This is a picture of encouragement.  This is our Wednesday morning ladies’ prayer group.  This is also a picture of missionary life because three of these lovely ladies have said goodbye this summer and are back in Germany.  Annett, the blonde; Tabea, in the green shirt holding the baby; and Sabine, in the red sweater; are all gone and we miss them.  This picture was taken in Verena’s backyard and I like how the clothesline made it into the top of the picture.

We have decided to make our meeting time into a “Moms in Prayer” meeting, which is a group to pray for a school, formally known as “Moms in Touch.”  Our friend Amy Reid took this picture in May because she is involved in Moms in Prayer in Oklahoma, as are some of my best friends, Amy Cox and Katherine Holmes, in their schools.  I like the structure of the new format and the style of praying is like BSF, so it makes me a little nostalgic as well.  We pray in English, Spanish, and German.  I am so thankful to get to have this time with the other missionary moms and every week I look forward to seeing them and spending time with God together.  Almost all my mothering life, God has provided a weekly prayer or Bible study time with other moms.  It is amazing how much it has shaped us and how much we really, really need one another.

  1. What a blessing! I am so thankful for the ladies the Lord has given me to pray with over the years! There are two ladies I still meet with almost every week to share God’s Word and to pray for our kids together. It is wonderful to share how the Lord is answering prayers even now that our kids are grown up! He is so faithful! I am thankful He has given you other moms to pray with and to encourage one another!
