If you’ve read my blog you’ve heard me mention our missionary friends the Crowders. I have a prayer request for them. They are returning to Africa tomorrow and I’m asking you to cover them in prayer. They have a VERY long flight tomorrow – those of you with children will understand – Beverly is pregnant and they have a toddler – have you ever traveled for 24 plus hours with a toddler – you can see why I’m asking you to pray! They also have 12 “bags” – I think they’re more like crates – they will be traveling with and that they need to arrive on time to Africa with them. I’m sure you can also understand the importance of their bags arriving, especially with all they need for their toddler. I appreciate you covering them with your prayers. I know this may seem strange, but even if you read this after the 17th will you still lift them up in prayer – our God is not bound by time and even if you pray for them well after the flight I know my God will hear and “count” it toward tomorrow :). Pray that they have very uneventful flights, that they get some rest on these flights, that Thomas (their little boy) has an easy time traveling, and that their bags arrive on time. Thank you friends for praying for them.
The paintings below are painted from some pictures the Crowders gave me. I’m not sure what this building is – in the painting it turned out looking more like a barn, but it is some concrete building -I’m sure Beverly will let me know what it is when she sees this post. The other painting is self-explanatory.
WHAT JOY TO ”FIND YOU”, YOUR PICTURES AND GOD’S WORD. I STUMBLED UPON YOUR WEB ,AS ONLY GOD KNOWS AND AM THRILLED. I ALSO DO WATERCOLORS BUT HAVE ALWAYS WANTED THEM TO HAVE GOD’S TOUCH ,AS YOU HAVE DONE.
I DID A FEW BASED ON SCRIPTURE BUT YOU HAVE INSPIRED ME TO GO DEEPER.
YOU ARE SO BLESSED TO SHOW GOD’S GLORY THIS WAY.
thank you, Betsy
Hi Betsy, I’m glad you stumbled onto the blog too! Thank you for the very kind comment! Do you have a blog? I would LOVE to see some of your watercolor paintings. I praise the Lord that He inspired you to go deeper with Him – we need more Christian influence out in this art world – so dig in Betsy! Thanks again for stopping by!
Wow, just watched their youtube video. They are awesome!
Yes they are!!! They are very dear friends and sacrifice much for the sake of the Kingdom. I’m glad you checked-out their blog – I’m sure your heart resonated with them since you guys are starting the process of adoption from Africa.
[…] you for those who prayed for the Crowders. I received an e-mail this morning saying they arrived safely. It took quite a bit longer than […]
