Steph's Pick - a call to prayer

Aug 8, 2008

This past year our dearest friends, Greg & Amy Brill have been serving in Ecuador as missionaries. What a great blessing it has been to follow their incredible journey of faith and love by joining them in praying for the salvation of those they encounter.

Specifically the majority of their time has been spent at a soup kitchen where they serve food to local children, while the rest of their time has been devoted to the partnership with US short-term teams that come for various time periods. These teams have accomplished various things throughout the year - some have been medical teams and have offered medical services to people in the community while others have brought with them containers and containers of new shoes and socks for Ecuadorian children - Happy Feet. These teams spend a majority of their time washing children's feet and providing them with a new pair of socks and shoes. There is almost too much to report as they have accomplished, through God's grace, an enormous amount for the sake of His kingdom. For more about their ministry please go to their blog.

For both Alan and I, their devotion to the spreading of the gospel and the serving of God's people has been so empowering. Greg & Amy's ministry often reminds me of a quote that I have always loved and clung to in my own personal walk with the Lord

"He is no fool who gives what he cannot keep, to gain what he cannot lose." - Jim Elliot, martyr

Although this may not be the usual "Steph's Pick" - it is more dear to our hearts than any of the past picks will ever be. Please join us in praying for the Brill's. They'll be coming back to the states in early September and could use your prayers for these next few weeks in Ecuador and their transition back to life in the states. We love you Greg & Amy! We pray the following for you on this day (and forevermore)...

"Every time you cross my mind, I break out in exclamations of thanks to God. Each exclamation is a trigger to prayer. I find myself praying for you with a glad heart. I am so pleased that you have continued on in this with us, believing and proclaiming God's Message, from the day you heard it right up to the present. There has never been the slightest doubt in my mind that the God who started this great work in you would keep at it and bring it to a flourishing finish on the very day Christ Jesus appears." - Philippians 1:3-6 (The Message)
