Wood Family Update — Returning to the Field
Dear Brothers and Sisters in Christ,
This year of our furlough has come to a close as quickly as it began. The bags are packed and we are ready to head back to Cambodia. On Tuesday July 5, we leave from Atlanta to return to our corner of God’s field. Our furlough, we feel, as been truly blessed by our Lord. We have had the opportunity to visit so many faithful supporting churches, some of which we had not seen in 9 years or more. Our Lord has provided abundant grace, wisdom, and strength for Alison’s health needs. During this year, the Lord Jesus has given us a renewed vision and zeal for the work in Cambodia. We have seen Him do a work in our own hearts and lives to make us more fit for His service. We desire now more than ever to see the hand of the Lord with us and the ministry. And that, for this letter, is my prayer request.
We would not be negligent to ask for your prayer for my wife’s health, safety in our travels back to Cambodia, and wisdom and strength as we transition back to life there. Yet a great desire weighs upon us—to see God’s hand of power upon our ministry in Cambodia. By the grace of our God, and only by His grace, we will preach His word to the lost in Cambodia. But we want—rather, must have—His power with us to accomplish His will. We long to see our God show Himself mighty in ways that only He can, just as we read in Acts 11:21. So we ask you to pray, just as Paul asked of the Thessalonians in 2 Thessalonians 3:1, that the word of the Lord would have free course and be glorified. Please pray that as we return to God’s field, that God would cause His word to mightily grow and prevail, both among Cambodian believers and unbelievers.
We thank you so much for your prayers. We cherish your love. We are humbled by your support.
May the grace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with you all.
Adam, Alison, Joshua, Anna, Abigail, Charity, Mary-Lynn, and Isaiah Wood
