Please pray for Nick Lowman
Please pray for Nick Lowman, who will be going overseas to Cambodia to serve alongside Steve Hyde over the summer.
Here is Nick's latest letter. Please feel free to email him encouragement and prayers!
Hello family and friends!
As most of you know, I am going to Cambodia! My mission is simple: to shine the light of Christ to the hopeless by serving as Jesus did. What this entails, I do not know. I will do my best to show God's love for each and every person I come into contact with, regardless of how they look, smell, or act! I will be staying at a children's center that I visited in the Fall of 2009. This center takes children in who, for the most part, do not have anywhere to go. They give them food, a place to stay, and send them to school! Every night they worship, and through the loving care of all the workers at the center, many have come to Christ.
The reason why I am sending you this email is because I would like you to pray for me. In general, please pray that I continually go into a deeper relationship with God and that I would do God's will in Cambodia. Specifically, please pray:
-for good health in Cambodia.
-that I could learn some of the language in a short amount of time so that I can connect with the people there even more so.
-that God would give me strength each day so that I can do the work He has laid out for me.
-that I would listen and do what the Holy Spirit is telling me.
-for boldness in a country that can be scary at times.
-for a great time travelling by airplane and bus; that God would put me next to someone on the plane who needs Him desperately.
-for wisdom in spending the money He has given me.
-that I would see everyone how my Father sees them.
Well, that's about all I can think of for prayer requests. So please, be praying for me and all the people in Cambodia. If you would like to receive periodic emails, please respond to this message saying so or email me at firstname.lastname@example.org indicating that you would like to receive updates on my journey.
For those of you who supported me financially, thank you! I received what I needed to go and more. Any extra will go to home churches and the children's center in Cambodia to use as they see fit. Thank you and don't ever forget that when you give in secret, your reward is in heaven.
Well, my flight leaves in 7 hours and I still need to finish packing and get to the airport (LAX) early enough to catch my flight! Thank you for reading this, and once again I urge you to pray. Feel free to send me a message and I'll do my best to get back to you!
