Last night I felt the Spirit tugging on my heart to worship so I did. The following couple hours with God were the touch I needed from Him to step into this new season in Costa Rica! A couple of the guys messaged me, not knowing that I was wrecked in God’s presence, then came and joined me for a while. Tomorrow will be the first meeting with the young people. Last night was am example of being active in God’s presence, inviting others into the intimate place and the context in which to disciple people. This a beginning of breakthrough that will lead to fruitfulness here. This is what I seeking God for so please be praying for me and these young people that we go deep into God’s presence and the things He intends for us in this season.
Praise God, I am back in Costa Rica again!
The last few months was great with my family in states; I am so thankful for the time with them. My little sister is leaving in a few days on her first mission trip to the Philippines. I’m proud of her and praying for great God things for her and the team.
It’s been a running start. I’d only been here a few days when I joined the local church here for the annual young adult and youth camp. This was three days (and late nights lol) of fellowship, competitions, worship and teaching focused on deepening our connection with God. It was wonderful being with friends and seeing how they continue to grow.
This afternoon I organized to go with the group (the same young folks I have been ministering to the past year) swimming at a waterfall nearby and start into Bible study. This is their summer break so I will gathering with them once a week for fellowship, prayer and Bible study. We are considering God’s purposes for outreach, what He wants us to do in faith and how I can help them grow. I feel a stretching coming, praise God, to apply the things learned, for real!
In the bigger picture I will here for five months this trip with a ten day break in April to visit my good friend Elaine Haiti who is so anointed for the ministry; adopting orphans, starting a school, and seeing multitudes healed and saved. We have the best God! There are plans forming for some teams to come visit and progress in designing and getting support to build ministry and living buildings. I am living in cabin on the hill again. I restored the power and am putting in a waterline then on to other improvements.
Prayer Request and Support
I always need to prayer support in many ways but mainly that I stay focused on deepening my intimacy with God, that I would know His voice and Word. His heart is where I find everything I need. I want His heart for Costa Rica.
To continue developing the project here (Wylde Life Sanctuary) we need:
- team members for a variety of areas but in general to work alongside in ministry.
- finances to build ministry and living facilities.
Financially I need:
- $500 more for a motorcycle, I have $1,000 so far.
- $200/month for international health insurance (I currently have none)
- $200/month for living expenses (currently have about $100/mo)
- Donate at http://costarica.eaglemissions.org/nathan-dodge/
Thank you all for your prayers and support!
