Learning about Tunisia

It is fascinating to visit some of the important cities in the southern half of the country. We visited a museum today. It was a large home, for an extended family, built in the 1600s. He said the women had no need to leave their home. The men did the shopping.

Heavenly Father, give the Farhos wisdom as they learn Tunisian customs and culture. Give them travel mercies over narrow roads.

Is Jesus Coming Today?

Joshua asked me that question, because of some weird thunder this morning. It sounded like a jet aircraft hovering above our city. It roared on and on for more than ten minutes, with no lightning visible. I told Joshua, "Maybe He is coming today!"

On Sundays, my benediction comes from 1Thes. 3:12-13  And the Lord give you increase of love in fullest measure to one another and to all men, even as our love to you; (13)  So that your hearts may be strong and free from all sin before our God and Father, at the coming of our Lord Jesus with all his saints.

Heavenly Father, thank You for the Holy Spirit's power in us to love YOU and ALL men and women from every nation. Give Mike, Sue and Joshua great joy as they serve believers from many nations at the Sousse Church.

Send us your questions advice, comments or prayer requests!

Back to School

Sousse Church Flowers
Sunday we started a new series of messages at the Sousse Church. Now we are studying an overview of the Bible. It is refreshing to review these great teachings. Last week, before our hot water heater got fixed, I realized why Bathsheba could have bathed on her roof, 2 Sam. 11:2ff. It would have been a great solar water heater.

Heavenly Father, thank You for sending the right person to fix the Farho's hot water heater/furnace. You are the author of the Bible, open our eyes and hearts to see and obey all it teaches.

Fasting for 3 days

It's a partial fast, a healthy vegan diet. Have you ever tried to go three days without coffee, meat, milk and sugar? Easier said than done. Sunday we challenged our congregation to do the Daniel Fast for only three days this week and focus on prayer for Tunisia when hungry for the missing foods. Many made the commitment. Would you join us in prayer and fasting for at least 3 days in September? Visit our Daniel Fast website for more information.

Heavenly Father, encourage us to try the Daniel Fast, or to give up some favorite foods for a few days. Help us to pray for revival in Tunisia. Give those fasting for Ramadan dreams and visions of Jesus.
