I was so sad to see this little Dave talk like this, but I feel like God had put me in his path to encourage him. I told Dave that even though he doesn’t know God well (he was not a Christian), that God has a plan for the him, to move him into a new season of life. The season he was in now was like an itchy rash, where it seems like it wont go away, and death looks like it is going to win. But Jesus is still alive, and he can heal all things. He will alway put people in our path to comfort us. I also told him that He was not defined by what others thought of him, but by the loving God who created him.
I am so thankful that God has given me opportunities in this strange Covid season, where we are still waiting to be together as a Port of Peace staff, to minister to those around me. Please keep little Dave in your prayers through the coming years. Pray that he finds hope, and that God will do a powerful work in his life.
