Dear friends of Entrust,
God bless you with a wonderful start to 2022!
As I look forward to this new year, it seems that the beginning of 2021 was more than a year ago. Many of us entered 2021 with high expectations of the end of COVID and the beginning of better times. We were surprised that so many travel and event plans continued to be interrupted by the ongoing pandemic. Yet, we were encouraged as we watched God work through ongoing increased online training, locally based in-person trainings and more fruitful cross-cultural and international Zoom interactions than we could have had with extensive international travel.
As 2022 begins, I am seeing a level of hope among our staff that obviously comes from the Lord. Entrust staff are planning ministry trips to places such as Romania, France, Asia, South Africa, Russia, Hungary and the Middle East, to name a few. They are eager for more opportunities to invest in pastoral leaders “in person” and are expectant that God will open more doors for international travel in the coming weeks and months.
I am excited to see what this year will bring. Thank you for your prayers for and partnership with the ministry of Entrust. My prayer for you in 2022 is this, “May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace as you trust in him, so that you may overflow with hope by the power of the Holy Spirit.” (Rom. 15:13)
We enter 2022 overflowing with hope. (Rom. 15:13) Will you, as you sense God’s hope filling your heart, ask him how he would have you invest financially in our ministries this year? You can give or increase your giving anytime at www.entrust4.org/give. With hope, we thank you!
