April 2016 News Letter from Elis Pramono in Undisclosed Location in Asia
Rejoice in hope, be patient in tribulation, be constant in prayer (Romans 12:12). It is completely difficult for me to rejoice and be patient in tribulation epecially, through the troubles and problems that I keep facing constantly. It seems extremely difficult to experiance a tranquil peaceful life at this moment, but despite all of the circumstances as I behold the person and work of Jesus Christ who has died, rose and ascended to heaven. Jesus did not forsake us as an orphan but left His indwelling Spirit in us and His Spirit enables me to gladly rejoice in hope and be patient in every tribulation in order that I may be conformed to the image of Christ.
I would like to express my sincere gratitude for your constant and earnest prayers-all the Saints (HeartCry staffs and ministry team). I ascribe all the blessings and tranquility that are experienced by me now to God's care through the prayers of all the saints who really pray for my ministry in my village. We greatly praise God and we can rest assuredly in God’s unfailing love knowing that He remains faithful in order to restore us to faith, His eternal Word and to fulfill His purposes.
Please pray for the spiritual growth for the members of our fellowship. Too, for the powerful work of the Holy Spirit to regenerate the mind and the heart of those who have been impacted from a spiritual retreat that just held on April 23rd, 2016, and especially of those who heard the message of the Gospel truth.
May the indwelling spirit of Christ continue to kindle your heart to serve Him faithfully and pursue us to constantly live for His MOST glory!
