Try saying that. Now say it again. Again. It’s funny—of all the lists of names and places in the Old Testament that look so complicated to pronounce, the word that usually trips me up during our oral Bible reading is that one!

We are more than half way through the Bible, but not quite half way up to our fund raising target of $1,000. During the two-week Read-a-Thon, participants seek sponsors and bring donations for DOVE Missions Africa (DMA). Missionaries of DMA are serving among least-reached people groups in seven East Africa locations, and of course the need for support is ongoing.

We invite you to help us reach the fund-raising goal even as we expect to complete the reading goal on Sunday November 18. You can donate using the tab on the right column or the information below.1

Today, I learned that if I really want to encourage someone who puts up a front of being “okay,” it is important to press in. That is what Elisha did when he met the Shunammite woman. She seemed to have it all together—no needs—but he insisted there must be some way he could be a blessing to her. And indeed, he was. So however satisfied someone seems, I want to more diligently through any possible façade and find a way to truly express God’s love!

Have a wonderful weekend.
