2. Ginger,Birthday greetings to the world traveler! We all miss you here but realize thebenefits of what God is doing in you and through you will be awesome! Ipray that your love for our Lord is growing deeper and deeper as you see Hisheart for other nations.Two Scriptures come to my heart for you:Philippians 1:9-11 And this I pray, that your love may abound still moreand more in knowledge and all discernment, that you may approve thethings that are excellent, that you may be sincere and without offense till theday of Christ, being filled with the fruits of righteousness which are by JesusChrist to the glory and praise of God.Philippians 4:4-7 Rejoice in the Lord always. Again I will say, rejoice! Letyour gentleness be known to all men. The Lord is at hand. Be anxious fornothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication, with thanksgiving, letyour requests be made known to God; and the peace of God, whichsurpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and minds through ChristJesus.Have a great birthday and rest of your trip!In Him, Bruce Eveleth 3.

I am so proud of you as you spendyour birthday right smack in the middle of where God wants you!THAT is a beautiful thing! Celebrate!I just asked the Lord for a word for you. He whispered IThesalonians 3 into my heart. Verse 12 and 13 say, "May the Lordmake your love increase and overflow for each other and foreveryone else, just as ours does for you. May He strengthen yourheart so that you will be blameless and holy in the presence ofyour God and Father when our Lord Jesus comes with all His holyones."So, that is my birthday prayer for you. That your love wouldincrease and overflow for your team and in turn for those you areserving. That as you love, you would sense and know how muchwe love you back here in the states! :) And, most of all, that youwould know and experience how crazy in love Jesus is with you!!!I am praying that He strengthens your heart supernaturally in away that you cannot understand or explain but in a way that fillsyou up like nothing else can!
