Update on Omar! Thanks for you prayers.

I just finished having Bible Study with Omar.  I felt that we might lose him, a few weeks ago, due to pressure from family and “friends”.  He is a young man that I feel has great potential.  He seems to be on the right track.  Please continue to pray for him that God would use his life. 

I used the exemple of a daba.  A “daba” is like a little hoe that is used for planting.  They don’t have many tools for planting their fields but they always have a daba.  I asked him if the daba had a great value if it was on the table.  He said, “no.”  Where does it have great value, I asked.  He told me in the field.  That is true but only if the master of the field takes it and puts it in his hand.  The daba has no will of its own, only the will of the master.  I told him that we needed to be like a daba.  A tool in the hand of the Master.  Let go of my will and He will use me in His harvest.

    I will let Omar know that lots of people are praying for him. I am sure it will be a great encouragement to him. Thanks again for all of your prayers.
