After reading Isaiah 58 again this morning, the Lord prompted me to write a new blog post. Before we left Kenya to return home, He reassured me that the ministry of Living Isaiah 58 would continue--this would be the American Branch! We have been back in the U.S. for a year and a half now, and I am asking Him to show me how we are to continue the ministry of Living Isaiah 58. Sean has returned to Kenya 3 times in the past 18 months to build on the work there, but what work does the Father have for us here in America? We have had orphan and foster care on our hearts for so many years. We have made attempts to move forward in foster care--but the door keeps closing, so we are waiting on God for His timing in that. We have been able to do orphan care in Kenya, not only with children but with orphaned adults--those with the "orphan spirit". I can see that God has brought at least one soul into our lives here in Spokane to "parent". But I feel the urgency for so much more. My attention has also been drawn to the portions of Scripture that speak of delivering those who are oppressed. There are so many groups of people in that category! From unborn babes in the womb, to those in nursing homes and every stage in between. I know that God has a plan for us, and He will unfold it in His timing. Will you agree with me in prayer that He will give us ears to hear what His Spirit is saying to us here in Spokane? I know this is a prayer that He will answer, because He highlighted Isaiah 58 verse 11, where He says "I will guide you continually".
