1 Chronicles 4:10,  “And Jabez called on the God of Israel, saying, Oh that Thou wouldest bless me indeed, and enlarge my coast, and that Thine hand might be with me, and that Thou wouldest keep me from evil, that it may not grieve me! And God granted him that which he requested.” The prayer is composed of four parts. First, Jabez asks God to bless him. Second, he asks God to enlarge his territory or increase his responsibility. Third, he prays that God will be with him and stay close. Lastly, Jabez asks that God keep him from harm so that he will be free from pain.
I have to admit that I think about this prayer often as GOD directs our steps and uses us to fulfill HIS purpose HERE in Nicaragua.  Years ago I ask GOD to “enlarge my coast” and little did I know that I would become a chicken farmer.  Over the past 24 hours I have spent a lot more time in studying about chickens than I have in prepping for the leadership training that begins on Monday.  With all that said I’m thankful that we have now turned the corner on production and are about ready to begin training in many of the local villages.
Really excited about the teams that are coming in to do VBS in many villages, start work on another new house in Pascuala and the Ag students from VT that will be working with some students from  the Baptist School and the folks here at the training center.  Seeking your prayers as its going to be a very busy month here in Nicaragua and excited to watch The Kingdom Grow.  IHS, Donald and Pammie
